Facebook is attempting to keep more users on its platform by introducing a slew of new features that mirror its competitors. This week, Facebook revealed that Stories will soon be open to business page accounts that might actually make use of the feature. Additionally, Facebook is testing a résumé feature that puts it in competition with LinkedIn, and it implemented screen-sharing in Facebook Live, which eliminates the need for third-party software. Facebook knows that to stay alive, it has to keep changing.
