Facebook Frames – Camera Frames for Facebook

Facebook Frames - Camera Frames for Facebook 4
  • With it’s latest update, Facebook continues to clone Snapchat features by introducing Facebook Frames.
  • Facebook frames will visually represent places like cities, businesses, and events.
  • These can be used on any photo or video created and shared within the Facebook camera.

Facebook Frames

With its Camera Effects Platform, Facebook will let users make their own frame for profile pictures and videos. Although you can’t just display whatever you want on your page, as Facebook does need to approve your creations.

The new tool isn’t targeted at individual users as much as it is businesses or people who are planning an event, such as a wedding or party.

Essentially, you want others to use your frames, like what Snapchat offers with custom geofilters. If you are a designer, you can start making your own here, all you have to do is log in to your Facebook account and follow the steps on that page.

According to TechCrunch, the “Camera Effects Platform” is only currently available in Colombia, Mexico, Taiwan, the UK, and Ireland, but it will be headed to the US and other markets sometime in the future

The reason these countries were chosen was because it’s where the profile frames have been used the most.

The new feature is also part of a broader effort by Facebook to encourage more visual communication through photos and videos, an idea that Snapchat pioneered with its camera-centric design.

Frames can be seen by everyone near an area if they are tied to a certain Facebook page with a location, like a restaurant or small business. If someone who doesn’t own a Facebook page creates a frame, only their friends will see it in the Facebook app when they’re near its associated location.
