Such a tool would make it easier for people to move to competing photo social networks, much like Facebook's own Download Your Information tool, which has been touted as a way to #DeleteFacebook.
Now, the Stories section on Facebook is getting boost as the giant is going to add AR doodles and Boomerange GIFs to the stories.
The new feature is named as 3D drawing and it allows a user to create various shapes and also write text on the videos shot by the Facebook camera before or at the time of video recording. Facebook has warned though that the feature isn't ideal yet, and the quality of the AR experience will depend on the lighting while capturing images as well as how well the contours of the subject are captured. Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same.
On the other hand, Instagram's Boomerang feature is going to replace the Camera button on the Stories on Facebook. It is also making users post to Stories by default when they use Facebook Camera.
If we talk about this particular Stories feature on Facebook, it has not been successful as Instagram or Snapchat. "We're testing new creative tools to bring pictures and videos to life, and introducing easier ways to find and share stories", a spokesperson from FacebooktoldTechCrunch. The company established brand partnerships for Facebook Stories in October past year and has also considered letting users create stories from the desktop website in the hopes of attracting more engagement. "Stories" was first implemented in Snapchat, but has quickly been adopted by rivals Facebook and Instagram, which have launched their own Stories.
