After blatantly ripping off Snapchat Stories in all of its major social media platforms and internet messaging apps, Facebook wants users to make sure that its hefty user base gets a feature-rich experience. If you use the main Facebook app on iPhone, you might have noticed the Stories feature resting atop of the app’s interface. While the feature is available for all, some of us don’t use it at all and this makes the feature redundant on your iPhone. If you’re interested in removing the Stories feature in the Facebook app, you’re in for luck because a new jailbreak tweak will remove the feature. Let’s dive in to see some more details on the subject.

NoMoreStories Allows You To Remove The Facebook Stories Feature From Your Device

If the new Stories feature is in your way, you can now remove it through a simple jailbreak tweak. Even though the feature is available, not all of us use it. This is mainly because users have diversified sources to make use of the Stories feature. The company introduced Instagram Stories last year and we can see that it’s a neat addition as an ample of people use the feature everyday.

The Stories feature is working fine for Instagram because by nature, the app is a photo-sharing platform and it makes perfect sense to enrich the app with more photo-centric features. Facebook on the other hand is basically a hub for everything.

So if you’re one of those who do not use the new Facebook Stories addition, a jailbreak tweak by the name of NoMoreStories will remove the feature from the app. Simply install this jailbreak tweak through Cydia and do away with the Stories feature on Facebook.

NoMoreStories is a minimalist jailbreak tweak that does not require any additional configuration options. The tweak on its own is pretty streamlined and light weight and does exactly what its name suggests.

Since the tweak does not operate on account bases, it will simply remove the Stories feature from Facebook on which the main app has been installed. This means that if you have Facebook installed on another device without NoMoreStories installed, the Stories feature will show up. So all you need is a jailbroken iOS device and NoMoreStories jailbreak tweak installed.

NoMoreStories is available for free from Cydia’s BibBoss repository, so do check it out if you haven’t already. As for now, what are your thoughts on Facebook Stories? Would you be willing to give the jailbreak tweak a swing? Share your thoughts in the comments.
