How to post a Facebook Story from a computer or mobile device

  • You can create temporary posts on Facebook called Stories. Facebook Stories disappear after 24 hours and are not a permanent part of your timeline.
  • You can post a Facebook Story with simple text and photos using a web browser or create polls, music stories, and more using the mobile app.
  • When you create a story, you can use the gear icon to set the privacy level – this lets you control who can see your story.

Facebook enables you to create temporary posts called Stories, like many other social media platforms. From a photo, text on a colored background, a poll, and more you can create a Facebook Story. Stories appear at the top of the monitor both in the feeds of your friends and in the Stories row, but you can also control who sees your stories. Your story will be gone after 24 hours.

How to publish a Facebook story

  1. Select “Create a Story” in the Story row at the top of the page on the Facebook app on your phone or on the Facebook page of a web browser.

If your desktop homepage doesn’t display the “Create a Story” option, click on the plus (+) icon at the top right of that page next to your account name, then select “Story” from the “Create” menu.
