Got camera? Facebook adds more Snapchat-like features

Instagram user growth

However, it does offer a better experience than Instagram's Stories does when it comes to the number of features present, so if you want a true Snapchat alternative, Facebook may be the way to go. Facebook might not be successful to acquire Snapchat, but with these features, it has successfully slowed down the app's growth rate. Starting with Instagram and Messenger, the social media company has been implementing the infamous Snapchat stories feature in most of its social apps.

Like Snapchat, when you send a photo or video via Direct, your friends will be able to view it once, replay it or reply.

Facebook Inc. took its most direct shot yet at Snapchat on Tuesday with the announcement of a camera with effects, stories and photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours within the core Facebook app. Once the conversation on the story ends, the conversation will no longer be visible in Direct. Either way, the update is rolling out to Android and iOS now so check it out if you still use the Facebook app. First in the list of features is the Facebook Camera. The photos and videos shared in Facebook Stories won't show in your general feed unless you share them there as well.

The next time you open up your Facebook app, the biggest change you're going to notice is at the top.

It was the fourth time California-based Facebook adopted such a feature on its properties.

Unlike other events you might post to your news feed, these stories disappear after a day. Stories appear at the top of the News Feed and only stay there for 24 hours.

Upcoming features Facebook is hoping to include will be for users to create their own frames and filters to apply to videos, which is an exciting concept!

Instagram Stories has proven extremely popular since its arrival past year, and Mark Zuckerberg won't mind that all of his company's apps are based around the same core feature, as long as Facebook Stories opens up new revenue opportunities.
