Facebook CEO sees augmented reality's future in the camera

Attendees arrive at Facebook's annual F8 developer conference, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in San Jose, Calif.

Facebook announced that there would be a free version of Workplace, available by the end of this year. He opened his keynote with jokes about the Fast and the Furious.

"I wrote like six more of these but I understand that some of you are here to see a tech keynote", said Zuckerberg.

The Facebook founder also briefly addressed a tragedy that took place Monday, when a man posted video of a murder on Facebook. In addition, M, Facebook's human-augmented concierge service, will become more proactive, scanning conversations in Messenger for ways it can help.

Honestly, it does, but these seemingly petty use cases underscore the work that researchers have done to make this a reality. For instance, stickers that say "Like us on Facebook" adorn countless coffee shops and small businesses in the US-it's easy to imagine pointing your smartphone camera at a sticker and the business' Facebook page appearing in mid-air.

After another quick detour to mention how the company was working harder to keep violent content off its Live video service, Zuckerberg quickly dove in to another vision more germane to his audience: His company's plans for the future of so-called augmented reality, or AR, in which digital objects are overlaid onto images and videos of the real world. Snapchat released similar features Tuesday morning - the latest shot in the war between the two companies.

Suspect in Facebook video killing shoots himself to death
In another video Stephens posted on Sunday, he claimed to have murdered 13 people and said he was going to kill more. Police said the Easter Sunday shooting occurred on a residential road in east Cleveland's Glenville neighborhood.

We look forward to seeing how this plays out and whether it encourages uploads on Facebook during a time when interaction on the platform has been decreasing. It was a rough draft for Facebook Spaces, a new virtual reality version of Facebook the company announced today.

Snap hasn't said whether it will emulate Facebook's playbook of widely inviting developers to add functionality to its app. Facebook described it as "a magical canvas for shared experiences". Now, he's acknowledging he not only overestimated virtual reality's short-term potential, but also underestimated the smartphone's ability to serve as a virtual veneer in the interim.

Rachel Rubin Franklin, the former head of the Sims video game franchise, said it lets you spend time with people and gives "the essence that you're really there together".

Who else is sick of Words with Friends? If you don't have Oculus (most people don't) you can use it in a Messenger video call.

"You're going to be able to swipe to your camera and swipe through the effects: Face masks, art frames, style transfers", he said.

VR social networks and communities already exist, and they're experiencing the same etiquette questions as social networks. He showed how a family could play a video game in 3-D by holding a phone over a living room table. We (meaning me) just thought the Zuck was trying to make using Facebook Live more accessible and user-friendly. "It's going to take a while to develop". This proposal comes after the social media website has faced sharp criticism for not doing enough to stop the flow of fake news on its platform during the past US presidential election. The platform will enable you to create a cartoon-style avatar and interact with friends using the Facebook-owned Oculus headset. Zuckerberg used the example of visiting the Coliseum and holding up a phone to learn more about the history and structure of the building.
