Facebook has launched a new website - Facebookstories.com. This new website is meant to encourage people to share the most extraordinary stories to Facebook fiends across the world.
So, if you’ve got a thought-provoking story just bring it on, after all Facebook is all about sharing and celebrating thoughts and of course each one is entitled to one’s opinion.
The website itself is supposed to be, in Facebook’s own words,
“…a way to share the extraordinary, quirky and thought-provoking stories and ideas from the more than 950 million people around the world who make up Facebook’s community.”
Each month starts out with a different theme for the stories.
For its debut month, the theme is “Remembering”. This includes the story of Mayank Sharma, a man from New Delhi who lost his memory after contracting meningitis. Sharma rediscovered his friend network with “People You May Know” on Facebook, helping him to recover some of the experiences he lost,” reveals the Facebook page.
In addition to stories submitted by Facebook users, Facebook Stories will also have a list of recommended books and music to check out, again based on the particular theme for each month. It will also feature an archive of stories from The New Yorker magazine. There’s also a monthly Facebook Stories podcast.
