There has already been a little confusion between Facebook and Twitter both having an app or feature called Moments (although each does a very different thing) and Snapchat’s Live Stories.

A new feature – yet to be named – seems to have appeared within the Explore tab of some users in the US, this Halloween: a curated collection of videos shared on the service.

It seems like Facebook (which owns Instagram) may be looking into competing directly with the likes of Twitter Moments or Snapchat’s Live Stories – Facebook seems to have a habit of treading on Snapchat’s toes ever since it failed to acquire it back in 2013.
