Facebook’s New Clone Feature Of Snapchat

Recommended Posts



In an another attempt to take on photo sharing mobile service Snapchat, Facebook has rolled out a new feature called Messenger Day which lets users post photos and videos that disappear after a day. Messenger Day appears at top of the conversation list in Facebook Messenger.


Users can add animated text and graphics to pictures or video snippets before sharing them. “Facebook doesn’t yet have an answer to Snapchat’s killer “lens” selfie face effects,” the report added. Earlier, Facebook announced that users can soon go live from the face-swapping MSQRD app and utilise different Snapchat-like masks and filters while the video is running. Facebook first acquired Masquerade, the Belarusian startup behind MSQRD back in March.


Available later this year, the feature will help users invite a friend to “drop in” on a live broadcast.  Facebook will also let you schedule a live broadcast and has built a lobby system so people can hang out before one starts. This comes right after the company is facing criticism across the world for taking user data from WhatsApp. WhatsApp, a popular multimedia messaging platform owned by Facebook also introduce scribbling and adding emoji’s on images, mirroring the functionality offered by SnapChat.

It kind of makes sense, I mean its the next logical step in the continuation of growing the facebook empire. A social media giant like facebook is simply trying to compete in all aspects that it can. Data theft is actually quite common among large corporations, most freedom of information and privacy act laws aren't really enforced very much online so they feel like they can bend the rules and operate in grey areas when it comes to targeting advertisements or even sharing it's users browsing habits.

Mark Zuckerberg isn't a crusader for the freedom of information, nor is he a philanthropist looking to make the world a better place. He simply wants to continue the growth of his corporation and the overall reach of his power. I'm not sure if you've ever read anything this guy has ever written but he is a total ego maniac.

Anyways... I kind of assume the direction of facebook will continue like this - is it good or bad? Well.. It's no worse than apple or microsoft.. :) at least we can take solace in that.
