Facebook is testing a new feature that allows users to share Instagram Stories directly to their Facebook Stories.

For now it's being limited to a small number of users who, according to The Verge, will receive a pop-up window explaining that 'Now your followers can choose to view your Instagram Story from Facebook.'

Only Facebook followers who also follow you on Instagram will be able to see your Instagram Stories.

Users' Stories will be color-coded by profile picture, so viewers know where they came from - Facebook Stories have blue circles, while Instagram Stories carry that app's pink-and-orange border.
