It seems every time we log on to Facebook, there is another innovative way that Mark Zuckerberg has come up with to interact with our friends and family.
Earlier this year, Facebook increased the amount of “reactions” you can have to someone’s post. In addition to the already established “Like” button, you can now hover over the “Like” button and choose from “Love,” “Haha,” “Wow”, “Sad” and “Angry.” Pretty cool, eh?
Well, now Facebook has upped the ante once again with the introduction of a new video feature. Over the past year, video seems to have been the top priority of Facebook’s developers. First, they brought users the ability to stream live videos on their Facebook page. And now, users will be able to upload videos in the comments and replies sections. With this new feature, you’ll be able to react to a friend’s post with a cute video that you made yourself.
The hope is that these videos will enable more engaging conversations between users. The feature is now available worldwide, and can be used in replies to posts by people and pages, as well as within groups and events.
Here’s how to use it:
- Record a video
- Find the camera icon next to the comment field and click on it
- Select and upload your video, then post.
Now you can engage with your contacts in a whole new interactive way and bring a little animation to your News Feed. Whether it’s sharing video footage of your baby taking her first step, posting a funny YouTube clip or reporting a breaking news story, Facebook communication has been taken to, yet, another level.
