That essentially means anyone posting Stories on their profile can make it viewable to not only "friends", but also public "followers". Facebook later confirmed the development to the publication.

Social media giant Facebook has rolled massive update for its Facebook Stories feature, which it copied from Snapchat. The main Facebook app, along with Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram have all been introducing features similar to Snapchat. According to a Facebook spokesperson "This is something we rolled out a few weeks ago". This feature works nearly similar to Instagram and Snapchat's Stories.

Now tap "More" button in the top right corner.

Months after its global launch in March, Facebook "Stories" that you could only share with friends have now been unlocked for the public. You will now be able to access "Edit Story Settings" and change the viewers from "Friends" to "Public". Existing and future Facebook Stories will then be turned public or visible to anyone, not just friends. Currently, Facebook has 1.2 billion users around the world, while its own Instagram has 250 million daily users for its Stories feature.

This feature is of particular interest to internet celebrities as they now see Facebook Stories as a platform equivalent to that of Instagram and Snapchat where their stories could be seen by their followers without necessarily having to add them as a contact/friend.
