However, it does offer a better experience than Instagram's Stories does when it comes to the number of features present, so if you want a true Snapchat alternative, Facebook may be the way to go. After adding features like My Day on Messenger, the social network recently introduced a new update which brings another Snap-like feature.
The Facebook camera has a range of effects like masks, frames and interactive filters that users can apply to their photos and videos.
Facebook will be partnering with upcoming movies for pop culture-themed filters, like a Wonder Woman headpiece and a Power Rangers suit. A similar feature is used by rival Snapchat. Facebook Stories will work like Snapchat Stories by allowing users to post ephemeral photos and videos that last 24-hours before they disappear. Facebook Stories will appear at the top of your News Feed. It also introduced two additional ways for sharing photos and videos, Stories and Direct. Once the conversation on a particular piece of content ends, it will disappear into the great abyss of the internet, hopefully to never to be seen again.
