Facebook rolls out a series of new features and here’s what we know about it

Facebook is one of the largest social media platforms that provide its users with hundreds of opportunities on a daily basis. Some people use Facebook as a getaway app from all the life troubles going around whereas some people use the social network to stay more connected with people they love and care about. Despite so many scandals involving accusations of privacy violations, Facebook still manages to top it all and still ranks as the top social media platform on the internet.

To engage a new audience and to make the platform more interesting for users Facebook is introducing several new features.

Customizable Avatar Sticker

Recently, Matt Navarra tweeted that Facebook is rolling out its customizable avatar feature in the UK. Previously, this feature was only launched in Australia. This new Avatarcreation feature is expected to be launched in more countries, soon. Users can even turn on their cameras to see themselves while creating the Avatars. The new Avatar feature will let you choose each and every tiny detail of yourself; you can choose your hair color, your eye color, face tone, hairstyle, beard style, body shape and the type of outfit you would want to wear. With this feature, you can make your own pack of avatar stickers and share them along with your friends.

Group Keyword Alert Feature

Previously, users had to turn on notifications of all posts so that they don’t miss a specific post including some keywords related to them but not anymore. Now users don’t have to go through all posts of groups just to see a specific post including the kind of content they need. Another new feature expected to be rolling out (soon for all) is the Facebook Keyword Alert feature in groups. With this feature, users can set up a list of keywords they want alerts from and with that, they can be notified whenever someone posts including those keywords. Whenever user will post some content including specified keywords, the user will receive a notification displaying about keyword alert in the specified group and after clicking that user will be directed to the post.

Author Icon

Another new feature launched by Facebook is the author icon displayed on comments. With this feature, it can be revealed easily if an author is commenting on its own posts. The comment posted by the author will have an author icon displayed above which can make it easy for commenters to distinguish among others.

Bottom Line
Every passing second new technology is introduced and with time the interests of people change. So, to keep the social media platform interesting for users Facebook is trying out these new features to keep them engaged and entertained.
