Three exciting new features coming to your Facebook

This platform is actually a tool which will help any developer build augmented reality apps. In other words, for Facebook Stories so they can keep ripping off Snapchat who, ironically, just introduced more AR stuff today.

"If you take one thing away from today, this is it: we are making the camera the first augmented reality platform", said Zuckerberg in his F8 keynote. Be aware that the company will insist that any frame created in the tool abide by Facebook's guidelines and also not use any trademarked images or content. "I used to think that glasses were going to be the first mainstream augmented reality", he said.

The AR Studio platform supports face masks, styles transfers, and realistic 3D objects, but Facebook sees more than just silly image effects in AR Studios' future. "We have a lot of work to keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening", he said.

Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has unveiled his strategy in virtual reality and augmented reality on Tuesday at the annual Facebook Developer Conference, or F8.

The app is in beta and allows users to create an avatar to live message and interact in a VR Hangout through Facebook Messenger.

Facebook launched its Workplace to takes on Slack for intra-office communication previous year.

And as was mentioned at the parade, we know that Vimy wasn't just a Canadian battle, it was a battle of the British Armed Forces. Sophie Gregoire; and Trudeau's son Xavier attend a commemoration ceremony at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial on Sunday.

Zuckerberg also showed off a number of new ways users will be able to tweak their photos, for instance, adding sharks that appear to swim around a cereal bowl, literally livening up one's Facebook feed.

The Facebook Spaces app allows you to create an avatar which looks like you to use in the app, you can customize it exactly how you want.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the crowd not to expect all of these things to show up overnight but that the company continues to tweak and we will start seeing them roll out over the next several years. He also said that he isn't anxious about people's perception of Facebook being a copycat.

A few developers have had early access to Camera Effects, including Giphy, which designed a thought bubble that can hover above your head while you're filming yourself to let your friends know what you're thinking.

Facebook's version seems to be aiming for a more personal experience. It comprises of two creative tools namely, Frame Studio and AR Studio.
