Boomerang and 3D drawing camera modes are coming to Facebook Stories

Facebook said there was little evidence people had changed their online behaviour since the data scandal

The second new feature announced for Facebook Stories - Boomerang - is an evolution of the GIF-creating feature available for a while.

The new feature is named as 3D drawing and it allows a user to create various shapes and also write text on the videos shot by the Facebook camera before or at the time of video recording. As Facebook ramps up competition with the likes of Snapchat and Instagram, we can likely expect greater integration with AR in future updates. Further, the reports from web suggest that the technology behind the AR feature can also sense corners and objects in space, and can also detect walls and tables.

According to John Barnett, Facebook camera product manager, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them". Users will then be able to wrap around their scribbles around the objects, but the technology is still far from flawless. In the coming days, you will be able to smartly use the Stories section of Facebook as you would be able to explore more of Facebook's Stories features through your mobile app. One noticeable and annoying flaw was that the GIFs return to the beginning once they end.

Such a tool would make it easier for people to move to competing photo social networks, much like Facebook's own Download Your Information tool, which has been touted as a way to #DeleteFacebook.

Moe Wagner declares for National Basketball Association draft
The 2018 NBA Draft is just over two months away, and the lottery is only a month away, but April 13 was an important day too. He averaged team highs in points (14.6) and rebounds (7.1) this past season for MI , which won a school-record 33 games.

The details of this feature are yet to be finalized and Instagram did not go into any detail at the moment.

However, that does not stop Facebook from trying at all.

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

Facebook has been pushing its Stories tool aggressively, despite a muted response from users. This also means that flash photography is not supported by the new feature, on account of it harshly affecting the lighting captured in the image.
