A Facebook feed containing content from both News Feed and Stories has been spotted in the wild.

A spokesperson for the social network said that while Facebook is always exploring ways to help people engage with News Feed and Stories, “We are not currently testing this publicly.”

Developer and blogger Jane Manchun Wong shared screenshots of the feed in several tweets, saying that content from both News Feed and Stories can be consumed through it.

According to Wong, if the header or surrounding space in a News Feed post is tapped, a full-screen version of that post is displayed, with users having the ability to like, react to or comment on those posts.
