Facebook (FB) launched "Facebook Stories" when the site reached 500 million users in July 2010. Their approach was to be thankful, rather than celebratory. FB wanted us to explore ways in which we could showcase fans' stories, from "happily ever afters" to amazing events from FB's archives, like FB groups bringing communities back together in crisis areas after natural disasters, for example.
Working within a small team of designers at JESS3 we created dozens of concepts and wireframes, initially with the intention of creating a mini-site, but as the project progressed, it became something that would be integrated into the FB site. Shown here are just some of my own concepts, but I worked on several other wireframes in addition to these.
