Facebook focuses on the developer community at F8

The company also introduced group video hangouts, and showcased examples of ways people can make video watching more social and interactive.

"I think one thing that people probably don't think about as much as we do is innovation to serve everyone in the community, not just the high end, right? It has capabilities beyond making memories".

This week, Snap rolled out an AR feature that lets users add special effects to their photos, in addition to the already popular face mask effects, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Not only would users be able to develop or use AR effects but he also showed the possibility of using AR to create art or turn normal objects into spaces for gaming.

Snap users simply tap the screen to look through the available World Lenses, which will be updated and changed on a daily basis.

The company launched them past year in Messenger but they were over-hyped and not many people use them.

Facebook first showed outward interest in the AR and VR world when it purchased Oculus VR for $2 billion in 2014. This is what makes it different from Facebook since it provides such platform. The two-day event, now in its tenth year, was expected to draw more than 4,000 attendees to the San Jose Convention Center in California.

A look back at Earth Day
It was created in the United States to increase public awareness of environmental problems and is now celebrated around the world. Earth Day is celebrated every year on 22 April, to honour our planet and shed a light on environmental issues that matter.


If you've been wondering why Facebook has been adding camera modes to its apps, from Messenger to WhatsApp, over the last months, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has revealed why during the F8 developer conference keynote.

When Facebook first launched in 2004, the company's focus was connecting family and friends. This is a significant effect because typically people might think a run is too mundane to share with people even though they're proud of the accomplishment, Zuckerberg said.

The launch comes as Facebook faces criticism as it tries to grow into its role as a platform that influences the lives of its nearly 2bn users.

While waiting at the doctor's office for example, Zuckerberg says that kids will be able to play interactive games against each other through their smartphones, using the waiting room table as a board. "But instead of a few options to choose from, you'll have thousands to choose from".

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday (Apr 18) vowed to work to keep the world's leading social network from being used to propagate grisly acts like the murder of an elderly man on Easter Sunday. However, the platform is still in closed beta.

As part of its focus on community, Ime Archibong, vice president of partnerships for Facebook, announced during the conference keynote Developer Circles, a new program created to bring developers from all over the world together, and provide a space where they can connect, learn and collaborate with other local developers.

"Think about how numerous things around us don't actually need to be physical", Zuckerberg said last week in an interview.
