Facebook releases “Instagram-like” app


Facebook is at the headlines once again as the company released a new camera app that enables people to take “Instagram-like” photographs that can be shared with iPhones.

According to product manager of Facebook Camera, Dirk Stoop, this new mobile app “makes using Facebook photos faster and easier.”

He added, “You’ll see a feed to great photos from the people you care about. You can swipe to see more of any album or tap to enlarge an individual photo.”

One great feature of the Facebook Camera is that this app makes uploading photos to Facebook easier and faster. This app can let you upload multiple photos simultaneously, instead of uploading them one at a time.

It is good to note that Facebook bought a similar application about a month ago. The company bought Instagram to the sum of a billion dollars to strengthen their stance against other companies such as Google and others.

Mark Zuckerberg said, “For years, we’ve focused on building the best experience for sharing photos with your friends and family. Now, we’ll be able to work even more closely with the Instagram team to also offer the best experiences for sharing beautiful mobile photos with people based on your interest.”

The Facebook Camera app is available at Apple’s App Store.
