Facebook 'testing' Snapchat-style news feed

Facebook are reportedly testing out a Snapchat-style News Feed.

According to Facebook expert and engineer Jane Manchun Wong, the social media app is looking to merge posts and Stories into one place much like the photo and video-sharing service.

Jane told TechCrunch: "Facebook is testing to turn News Feed into Story Feed.

"This integrates Posts and Stories into one, allowing users to consume both within the same reel of content.

"The UI also shows the regular Sponsored Posts like how the News Feed would."

The News Feed would essentially be replaced by a Carousel.

The firm is currently trialling the new layout features on the Android version of the app.
