Facebook is rolling out group stories worldwide, so everyone can dip into its version of Snapchat.

You can use the feature to post photos and videos that automatically vanish after 24 hours.

The social network highlighted the feature’s popularity in the pup-focused Dogspotting group — try not to get addicted to this if you’re a canine fan — in its Tuesday announcement.

It’s also adding emoji reactions for group stories, so group members can respond quickly.

Facebook copied the Stories concept from Snapchat and added it to everything. It’s available on Facebook itself, Instagram and Messenger (where it was initially called Day before being merged with the main Facebook version). On WhatsApp, the feature is known as Status and will be getting ads in 2019.

In September, Facebook Stories hit 300 million daily users, and the company opened up advertising within the feature globally.
