Sharing to Stories

Sharing your content as a story.

With Sharing to Stories, you can allow your app's Users to share your content as a Facebook Story or Feed Post.

Overview

By using Android Implicit Intents and iOS Custom URL Schemes, your app can pass photos, videos, and stickers to the Facebook app. The Facebook app will receive this content and load it in the Story Composer so the User can publish it to their Facebook Stories.

The Facebook app's Story Composer is comprised of a background layer, a sticker layer, and an attribution link.

Background Layer

The background layer fills the screen and you can customize it with a photo, video, solid color, or color gradient.

Sticker Layer

The optional sticker layer can contain an image, text, or both, and can be further customized by the User within the Story Composer.

Attribution Link — Approved Apps Only

The attribution link appears as text displaying your app's icon and name, and can deep link to content within your app.

This feature is currently in closed beta and only available to developers who have been approved for access. To request approval, complete this form.
