Facebook continues trying to copy the best features of competing applications and now it is the turn filters Snapchat . But not to apply, but to make our own.
The photos with the front camera, the selfies, still relevant today, and one of the most interesting resources are the filters or frames we have available.
The king of this idea was at first Snapchat, with filter-frames made much more fun photos. Other applications then copied them but until now was something difficult to create our own.
Instagram owner does not want to leave out his own camera application and to promote it has decided that any can create your own photo frame to experiment.
How do the filters in Facebook:
To design our filter we have to go to the website dedicated to it, which give us the instructions.
- We create the file based on transparent PNGs.
- We got on Facebook to validate the design (usually takes one week).
- Once accepted appear in the camera app Facebook.
- And if we want we can measure the amount of people out there using it.
How are our filter?
Once the filter appear to everyone risen, but not always. If such a city is linked to users who are there appear.
If an event, for example Christmas, because in those days is more likely to occur than in summer.
The name created appears next to the filter and if follower of the Facebook page creator there is also more likely to appear in the camera app.
How to use filters?
The idea of this product is to use it in our Facebook profile pictures.We will have a search or filter thematic choice and that’s where appear, for all our creations.
Obviously we can do it also launched the camera application but so far advanced option that is not in all countries.
It is available in Colombia , Mexico , Taiwan, United Kingdom and Ireland, which are the places where the frames have been used, but will reach more countries in the coming months.
