Facebook Stories Is Getting AR 3D Drawing And Instagram's Boomerang

Facebook's new feature allows users to add 3D drawings to videos
With the availability of the AR-based 3D drawing feature clear signifies that a major push is being given to the Stories and it is said to help increase the popularity of stories and drive user engagement. The Cambridge Analytica scandal has been the epicentre for all the vociferous opinions that have been raised against the popular social media network, as many can not fathom the fact that their private information was mined without any staunch approval. This, in turn, allows a user to wrap his/her art on the objects which are visible in the camera feed.
The report also pointed out that AR drawing will be known as "3D drawing" and will roll out for Facebook users in coming weeks. At the moment the wrapping functionality only works in optimal lighting conditions, when the object recognition algorithm detects the presence with assurance.
According to John Barnett, Facebook camera product manager, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them". Facebook Stories will now allow a user to scribble or draw shapes on videos of the world around them.
"The way people share and connect is changing; it's quickly becoming more real-time and visual". Given that it has more users than Snapchat, the pioneer of vanishing posts, Facebook will have an even harder time convincing the people to use its platform and cross-post to Instagram instead.

"Starting today, we are introducing a new experience called Stories, connecting Messenger Day and Facebook Stories. That has prompted the social network to make Stories available to brands, to merge it with Messenger Day (yet another Snapchat-like feature) and to mull over the possibility of allowing users to create Stories on PC".
