With this feature, a user can share photos and videos to tell a tale about his/her day, trip or an event. The "Camera Effects" feature adds dozens of effects like masks, frames and filters within the Facebook camera allowing you to turn your selfies into a "Picasso-style work of art". Unlike Stories on Instagram and WhatsApp which are deleted from existence after 24 hours, you can share those stories on your Timeline so that they remain forever until you decide to delete them.

Coming to Facebook Stories, just like Instagram Stories, which lets you share multiple photos and videos as part of a visual collection atop News Feed. In its Q4 2016 earnings call, Facebook boasted that 1.15 billion users access the social network only on its mobile app every month, though it didn't specify what percentage of total users that number accounted for.

The company announced its own Stories feature Tuesday in a blog post that also unveiled several other new camera features, including movie-themed masks that lay on top of photos.

As for Facebook Stories, well, you know what this is.

These films include Power Rangers, Alien: Covenant, Despicable Me 3, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Wonder Woman, and Smurfs: Lost Village.
