Facebook has come a long way since it’s initial launch in 2004. If you don’t remember the original Facebook, that might be because you didn’t have a college email address at the time. At its launch, it was only available on certain college campuses. Then it was expanded to all college campuses. Today, it’s hard to find many people that don’t have a Facebook anymore. With its ever-growing expansion, the social media company has to find new things to keep it interesting. Let’s take a look at some of the new features coming to Facebook in this new Facebook update.
As far as features go, Facebook Messenger is still relatively new. Set up to replace the old style AOL Instant Messenger, Facebook Messenger allows you to have IM style conversations with your Facebook friends. Over the coming weeks, you might start to notice a change in the current Facebook Messenger. Messenger 4 will feature easier navigation and functionality and new ways to personalize conversations, all designed with you, the user, in mind.
Video Calling Devices
Another way Facebook is keeping up with the times if video calling. Imagine Skype, but directly plugged into your Facebook account. Now, Facebook has taken it one step further with the launch of Portal and Portal+. These devices work similarly to the way that Google’s Alexa or Amazon’s Echo work, but are video specific.
Pre-Recorded Live Streaming
Thanks to programs and apps like Periscope live streaming an important event or something fun has never been easier. You can feel like you are in the middle of the action, even if you are thousands of miles away. Now though, you can pre-record a video, add in any sort of extras you want, and “live stream” it.
