Over the next several months, Facebook will roll out a slew of new features and upgrades to its users. The social networking site is giving users additional opportunities to connect with others and contribute to their accounts, from a new dating app to privacy settings. Here are all of the new features coming soon to the Facebook and Messenger applications.
NEW FEATURES ON FACEBOOK:
2) CRISIS RESPONSE HUB
In 2017, Facebook launched its Crisis Response Hub to assist people remain safe and informed during a crisis. People impacted by the disaster will be able to post real-time updates on their experience, including pictures or videos of damage, road closure information, and more, thanks to a new feature coming later this year.
3) DATING APP
Facebook is developing a dating and relationships function inside the app in an attempt to get into the dating game. You’ll be able to establish a dating profile distinct from your Facebook one, similar to Tinder and Bumble. Your prospective matches will be suggested based on similar interests, dating preferences, and mutual friends. Because the dating service feature won’t be tested until later this year, CEO Mark Zuckerberg kept the information to a minimum. Users will also be able to find people with similar interests via their Groups and Events, according to him. However, nothing you do in the dating function will be shared with your friends, so you’ll have some privacy while using it.

4) SHARING 3D PHOTOS
Users will be able to upload 3D pictures beginning this summer, after the launch of 3D posts, which enables users to publish 3D material on Facebook. While the business did not provide many information about the new function, it did say that users would be able to share 3D pictures on their social media accounts.
6) WATCH PARTY
Facebook’s Watch Party feature allows users to watch videos with their friends. If you’re a member of a Facebook group, you’ll have access to Watch Party’s Live Commenting feature, which allows moderators to narrate what the whole group is seeing.
7) DOWNVOTES AND UPVOTES
While Facebook is credited with inventing the “Like” button, which is currently utilized on a variety of social networking sites, it has yet to offer the inverse. The business has stated that an upvote/downvote function will be added, however it will only be accessible for certain comments. Users will only be allowed to use it on certain postings in order to encourage useful or insightful comments, which is presumably Facebook’s method of preventing abuse.
8) SHARING TO YOUR FACEBOOK STORIES
After Snapchat Stories, Facebook launched its own Stories feature, which enabled users to submit a collection of pictures and videos using the in-app camera. The business revealed at the developer conference that you’ll be able to contribute more to your tales by sharing material from other platforms.
You may send material straight into the camera by clicking the share button via an app and then editing it as desired. The function will be accessible on Instagram Stories as well, and you won’t need to connect either of your accounts to any other applications to utilize it.
NEW FEATURES ON MESSENGER:
2) MORE MESSENGER CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS
While Facebook didn’t say when the update will be available, it did say that Messenger would be getting a makeover that would make the app appear less crowded. Users will also be able to personalize their interactions by changing the color of the message bubbles and switching to night mode.
