Facebook adds AR drawing and Instagram's Boomerang to Stories

One of the largest photo sharing social media platform, Instagram will be expected to add a feature in their user interface.

The social media network will pay from $500 to $40,000 or more for big data abuse discoveries on its platforms.

"Facebook tells me technology understands the corners and objects in the room to create a 3D spec. Facebook could use that to detect surfaces like walls and tables to wrap the drawing onto them". Facebook's users in America have fallen out of love with Facebook in a huge number and the survey says that over 9% of them have already deleted their accounts. Speaking about the feature to TechCrunch, John Barnett, a Facebook Camera Product Manager, said, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them".

The survey by Creative Strategies which appeared on Tech pinions has revealed that from the Facebook's estimated 214 million users in the United States, 19.2 million deleted their account over the past few weeks alone. 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.


Until now Instagram never allowed any data to be downloaded, however, there were third-party apps that allow a user to do it.

"The way people share and connect is changing; it's quickly becoming more real-time and visual".

"We are building a new data portability tool". The stories archived by the users and messages exchange will they be allowed to be downloaded or not, is yet to be disclosed.
