The objective is to make the new camera, stories and Direct an easy option for users to see the globe with the help of photos and videos sharing.
Facebook will not only take inspiration from Snapchat with its camera and filters, but it's also on a feature similar to Snapchat's Stories - which have already been added to Facebook's Instagram and Messenger.
