Snapchat is well-known for its camera filters and other accessories that can be used, especially the water filter that is famous today. In short, the filter portrays the same scene as Titanic that shows a pool of water on the bottom of the screen and reflects the image of the user. Now, Facebook recently added features on its camera as well, which seems to be an original idea from Snapchat.

In addition, camera filters aren't the only one that has been added on Facebook. Instead, dozens of effects enhance user's photos and make it colorful. Moreover, the new feature called Facebook's "Stories" allows users to share their photos and videos with a span of one day.

Other new features that are on Facebook

Facebook Direct feature allows people to share a photo or video with a specified amount of time, according to ITV's report. This feature was released last Tuesday and this is now mostly used by millions of people. This feature is perfect for users who want to share a photo discreetly but later disappears after one day for privacy purposes.

On the other hand, for the filters and effects, these somewhat are directly copied from Snapchat because Snapchat is well-known for its filters and effects, as mentioned before. Therefore, some users are still wondering why. However, with all the improvements and new technology coming out, Facebook will not be late in grasping those opportunities and incorporating that into their own social media website and app.

According to Variety's report, Facebook seems to copy Snapchat's disappearing messages just as reported a few days back then. The rivalry between Snapchat and Facebook is not ending yet, as USAToday reports such rivalry between the two social media websites mentioned.Furthermore, the Facebook in-app camera features will be releasing next week on both iOS and Android platforms. This will include mask filter that will cover user's faces with masks from upcoming movies this year.
