Instagram allows users to download their data to maintain transparency

Facebook announces major change in ranking the public content based on surveys

The second tool launched by the social media behemoth is Boomerang. As per a report by TechCrunch, the company will soon roll out new elements to its Facebook Stories feature, including the ability to draw AR doodles on real-world images and videos, as well as the integration of the popular Boomerang feature from Instagram.

With a device's camera, users will be able to create 3D drawings in the world around them, which come to life through AR.

"Unlike Instagram's Snapchat clone, which has more users than Snapchat itself, Facebook's hasn't been as successful". Further, the reports from web suggest that the technology behind the AR feature can also sense corners and objects in space, and can also detect walls and tables. "Currently, it only does that when it's confident about the object recognition, such as in optimal light conditions", Techcrunch writes. 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.


Instagram makes it easy for users to cross-post to Facebook when they publish a Story.

The social media platform said it will reward people with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence. "Our smartphones, our computers, our email, the big companies-Amazon, Google, Facebook-they're collecting data on us every single step of the way".

"The way people share and connect is changing; it's quickly becoming more real-time and visual". The stories archived by the users and messages exchange will they be allowed to be downloaded or not, is yet to be disclosed.
