Facebook is leveling up its Stories feature. If you are not familiar with 3D drawing then this allows you to scribble a message or a graffiti and then move the camera around to see that the markings or the elements of the graffiti stay in place as the camera moves. At the time, the company said that it was planning to build ways to bring the created 3D content and objects into the real world using AR, and 3D drawing could be the platform's first moves in that direction. This, in turn, allows a user to wrap his/her art on the objects which are visible in the camera feed. The latest is the addition of Instagram Boomerang GIF with Facebook Camera that lets the user draw with abandon. "Currently, it only does that when it's confident about the object recognition, such as in optimal light conditions", Techcrunch writes. "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them" says Barnett, per TechCrunch.
The survey by Creative Strategies which appeared on Tech pinions has revealed that from the Facebook's estimated 214 million users in the United States, 19.2 million deleted their account over the past few weeks alone.
Instagram has taken a page out of the Facebook book as it will now allow the users to download a copy of the profile of all the information they have shared.
"The way people share and connect is changing; it's quickly becoming more real-time and visual".
Apart from the new features, Facebook is also making the panel larger and adding a camera window in the status composer.
The social media platform said it will reward people with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence.
