You see all those funny pictures on snapchat – human beings with dog ears or tongue? It's coming to Facebook!

Facebook App camera update – Going Snapchat?

Beginning from today, March 28. Android and iOS users of Facebook app can now get to the app's camera with a swipe of their finger and then add visual effects like a rainbow or a beard glitter or even interact with dynamic objects – like falling snow.

According to Connor Hayes, a Facebook Product manager, Facebook the largest social network with over 1.8biilion users, did not get the idea from Snapchat but by popular demands of its users.

"Our goal here is to give people more to do on Facebook and that's really been the main inspiration," he said in a briefing with reporters.

Along with this update, Facebook is also introducing Stories and Direct.

Stories let you share multiple photos and videos as part of a visual collection above the News Feed. This photo and videos remain visible for 24 hours, stories won't appear on your Timeline or in News Feed unless you post them there. To add to your story, tap on the “Your Story” icon in the Stories bar at the top of News Feed.

Direct let's you share your photos and videos with specific friends, selected by you for a limited time. When you send a photo or video via Direct, your friends will be able to view it once and replay it or write a reply. Once the conversation on the photo or video ends, the content is no longer visible in Direct.

Here is a video introducing the new camera features courtesy of Facebook:

What do you think, are these cool new features or is Facebook unnecessarily trying to be Snapchat?
