Facebook just stole pretty much everything left to steal from Snapchat

Posted March 30, 2017

In August past year, Facebook introduced a stories feature on Instagram, followed by the introduction of a similar feature in its Messenger app in January. Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel declined the offer and it was probably then that Facebook made a decision to move from a text based social networking platform to a video and image based one, after all that's what the users want.

If a friend sends you a direct photo or video, you can view and reply in the direct section of the app. Facebook Stories will let users share multiple photos and videos, which disappear in 24 hours.

However, Comcast says that the interpretation of the situation is wrong and its service in no way breaks any net neutrality laws. Other giants that are into the online streaming services' business include DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH) and AT&T Inc.

Facebook's taking on Snapchat head-on with its latest app update, introducing disappearing posts and an array of camera filters. Those come in the form of new camera effects and new ways to share your photos and videos on Facebook.

Facebook is obsessed with the Story feature and here is another proof.

You can download Facebook from the App Store for free. Facebook Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp also allow users to post photos and video that expire after a day. It's been filled to the brim with masks, frames, interactive filters, and reactive effects like falling snow. With it, you can tap a new camera icon on the top left corner. "Once the conversation on the photo or video ends, the content is no longer visible in Direct", Facebook's blog post reads. Facebook has teamed up with Hollywood for this feature, so instead of Snapchat's licking dog or voice-changing raccoon, there will be masks and filters based on "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and "Despicable Me 3".
