You can add videos or photos to your Facebook Story by clicking the “Your Story” button in the bottom right corner.
The default setting will be public, which means that all your friends on Facebook and followers will have access to the settings.
You have the option to choose “Friends and Connections”, “Friends”, or “Custom”.
You can be as specific as you like and only select the people to share your Facebook stories.
How to personalize your music story with GIFs, stickers, and more

You can only play a small portion of the song (around fifteen seconds). You can, however, choose which portion you wish to play. The small box at the bottom that shows the part of your Story is currently playing can be moved. Drag this box to the section you wish to play.
Why Facebook is adding music to profiles and stories?
Facebook updates its product features almost daily. Social media platforms are constantly competing for users’ time.
Facebook is also eager to include the audio element.
It wasn’t easy to share a video on social media with copyrighted music in the past. Artificial Intelligence software-enabled platforms recognize when videos were shared with artists’ music and then remove your video.
Facebook was the first social media platform to recognize the emotional connection people feel with music and the importance of video editing. Facebook signed a deal last year with Universal Music Group (UMG). The deal allows users to share Universal licensed music on Facebook videos.
On December 8, Facebook Sound Collection officially launched. This section on Facebook allows you to find sound effects and songs that you can add to your videos.
Where is the music sticker on Facebook?
Find the Music sticker allows you to snap a photo, video, or photo from your phone’s camera roll. Next, tap the sticker icon to select the Sticker for music.
