Cat head.

Most people love social media. It’s a great way to stay in touch with friends and family members that you may not be able to call or see every day. One of my favorite forms of social media is snapchat. It’s a great way to send pictures and talk with a friend, without clogging your storage on your phone.

In this article, it discusses how Facebook live will be adding a filter that is similar to the one found on snapchat, called “masks” and that is some exciting news. Additions like this to our favorite site are always fun, and I’m excited to see what social media sites have to offer in the future

The unfortunate part is that it is only for the live feature, which isn’t something that everyone uses. It’s also unfortunate because I already find friends who use live for no specific person to be quite annoying, and this feature sounds like it may cause that to be a more common occurrence. Maybe with the rollout of this feature, they can stop sending me an alert each time a friend is live.

Or maybe someone can tell me how to turn those notifications off? Either way…

In all seriousness, I think this could be a good way for some sources to have more fun with their audience and be more relatable, because who doesn’t enjoy having a cat on their head or watching their favorite news anchor having their face stretched out?

  1. Those FB Live notifications can be easily disabled. I would be curious to hear more about your love of Snapchat and distaste for FB Live. Perhaps a topic for a future blog entry?
