Facebook Stories using Bing Maps

Facebook Stories using Bing Maps
Find Facebook Stories by location using Bing Maps


Facebook is all about your individual and collective experiences of you and your friends. It's filled with hundreds of millions of stories. Which ones inspire you? What's your Facebook story?



Facebook has launched a new application highlighting shared stories about people who have leveraged Facebook to reconnect.
The app "Facebook Stories" uses stories that have been authored by users who’ve found family, friends and flames on Facebook after having been long disconnected and used the social network to find one another amongst the 500 million Facebook users.

Of the stories that have been published, Facebook is providing you with location context via Bing Maps. For those users that are reading the stories a map provides that visual representation to stories location.

The application lets you scroll through stories on Bing Maps (by location), as well as by dozens of themes  “Love,” “Family,” Reunions,” “Sports” and “College” etc.. Fill out the short form at the bottom and select a theme, and you’ll be able to share your story in the application and with your friends through News Feed.

Facebook wants your stories. Story submissions are limited to 420 characters, so think about what makes your story unique and about the impact you or a group of people made by using Facebook. Read the full blog post on the Facebook blog for more details.
