Facebook Adds Snapchat-Like Features to its App

by | Mar 29, 2017

Facebook is adding more Snapchat-like features to its app, reports the Associated Press, which added that Facebook “says it wants to let your camera “do the talking” as more people are posting photos and videos instead of blocks of text.

“Facebook is rolling out an app update (and with it) you can tap a new camera icon on the top left corner. That opens up the phone’s camera to do a photo or video post. You could have posted photos from the app before, but it took an extra tap.

“Once you open the camera, you’ll find Facebook’s other new Snapchat-like features, including filters that can be added to images.

“Other effects, such as animations and other interactive filters, are a new twist to dressed-up photos.

“”Also new is a “stories” tool that lets you post photos and videos that stay live for 24 hours. This feature is already available on Messenger and Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.”
