Facebook begins testing a Snapchat-like camera with filters and stickers
Facebook is testing a new version of its flagship app that opens directly to a Snapchat-style camera, encouraging you to capture more photos and videos and adorn them with filters and stickers. The test, which begins today in Canada and Brazil, marks the first time Facebook has incorporated technology from MSQRD, a video effects app that the company acquired in March. The move, which comes just days after Instagram added a Snapchat-like feed of ephemeral "stories," reflects Facebook's deep anxiety over Snapchat's growth at a time when it has seen sharing decline on its own platforms.
