The developers at Facebook made it easy for you to know what the hell you’re looking at
If a stream is live, it’ll say “LIVE” (in a bright color) above your friend’s name in the Stories row. This is true for both Facebook and for Instagram. I like this because there’s no confusion. If there’s a replay of a livestream, it’ll show up as a replay button in a vivid color above your friend’s name also in the Stories row.
Stories are ALWAYS replays whether they’re a minute old or 23 hours old. And they’re of course in the Stories row, along with livestream replays and true livestreams — “One row to view them all.” It’s okay to be confused. It’s not okay to stay confused. #kidding
