Facebook, the popular social media platform has been making a name for itself recently, as they have been trying out features from their rivaling applications. This is proven true once again by testing a new feature that copies Snapchats very popular picture and video filters. Facebook can now let users send pictures that map your face and full frames effect that overlays the scene; just like how Snapchat does it.
According to the Verge, another feature which is similar to Snapchat is that Video will only remain visible as long you and your friend talk about it for only 24 hours. Once the 24 hours is up, the content will expire.
Also, the tech giant company Facebook is attempting to place the camera icon in the upper left corner of the main app allowing users to swipe right on the main screen. However, this feature is only in a testing phase located in Ireland. A while ago, similar features were released by Facebook in Canada and Brazil during the 2016 summer Olympics.
A report by Wall Street Journal claimed that Facebook tried to purchase Snapchat for $3 billion in 2013, but they were not successful in convincing the Snapchat CEO, Evan Spiegal.
