How interesting that all those apps have one thing in common-they all have the Stories feature and want to keep improving on it.

The social media network will pay from $500 to $40,000 or more for big data abuse discoveries on its platforms. If you are not familiar with 3D drawing then this allows you to scribble a message or a graffiti and then move the camera around to see that the markings or the elements of the graffiti stay in place as the camera moves.

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. Users will then be able to wrap around their scribbles around the objects, but the technology is still far from ideal. Facebook has warned though that the feature isn't flawless yet, and the quality of the AR experience will depend on the lighting while capturing images as well as how well the contours of the subject are captured.

Facebook is giving stories a boost by rolling out AR doodles and Instagram's Boomerang to its camera feature suite, Tech Crunch reports.

The company has only added pastel gradient colours as part of the feature and it could add additional brushes in the future.

Instagram makes it easy for users to cross-post to Facebook when they publish a Story.

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

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

"Starting today, we are introducing a new experience called Stories, connecting Messenger Day and Facebook Stories".
