Just how long did it take Justin Bieber fan stories to start flooding the new Facebook Stories site? A little over an hour.
At 9:23am this morning (Pacific), Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg commemorated the social network reaching 500 million users by launching Facebook Stories, a sub-section of the site where users could share their Facebook-related tales. Around 10:45am (Pacific) or so by my watch, Bieber-mania has hit Stories. Eyeballing the Stories page, it appears that posts exuding praise over the young internet singer-celebrity far outnumber any other type of Facebook Story (like “Love” or “Friendship”).
