Spotted a typo in your latest story? Or, maybe you’ve just changed your mind about what you wanted to share? Here’s how to delete a Facebook story in just a few steps.
Stories are a fantastic way to share photos, videos and text for a limited amount of time, commitment-free, but sometimes 24 hours is still too long. Thankfully, deleting a story is just as quick and easy as making one in the first place.
There are actually two ways to delete your Facebook story – in Facebook and in Messenger. Because the two apps are connected and share one profile, removing your story from one app will also get rid of the other. This is why its important to make sure you want your Facebook story off Messenger too before hitting the delete button.
