Earlier today Facebook held their F8 Developer Conference. There were quite a few things shared during the event, but we broke down the three largest changes which Facebook is making/adding to their service. Here's the summary:
- "On This Day" Feature - This is a new way to look at old stuff. It basically gives you a page every day to bring up photos which were on that same day in your past. In order to get to this "special page," you will need to "click on the On This Day bookmark, and search for “On This Day.” Alternatively, you can just head to facebook.com/onthisday.”
- Third-party developers support in FB Messenger - This was the biggest change/upgrade that Facebook shared today. The company will be opening up FB Messenger to third-party developers so that they can make their own custom apps for the service. They claim they wanted to offer “even more ways for the 600 million people who use Messenger every month to express themselves.”
- Embeddable video functionality - If you are a fan of posting videos on your website(s), then you will want to pay attention to this. Facebook will soon offer HTML code for videos uploaded to their network which is meant to make embedding them much easier.
