A photo or a video is a great way to start a conversation or share a special moment that you want the people close to you say something or comment on that is why it is visual communication is popular now a days. The year 2013 is when Facebook messenger introduced the addition of stickers and surprisingly it became a hit. But it is limited only to appear on the white background of your messenger thread. When Snapchat launched its overlaying text, emojis to videos and photos it opened our eyes for new opportunities for uniqueness and creativity, this somehow made the makers of Facebook do the same because this made them realize that visual communication will be a big hit.
That is why Facebook messenger evolved into a camera. They recently launched its big redesign last December. Upon taking a video or a photo, you can choose from more than 5,000 graphics to add to your photos or videos, you can choose from so many statements like “I love you”, “I miss you”, “let’s hang out!”, and so much more. It gives you the freedom to choose from the font you want to use then to the colors of the font.
You can use your creativity to add stickers to splash atop your photos. This makes your photos or videos more lively and fun. What’s great about it is that it just easy to use, despite of the many additional effects the camera or the application responds very quick.

Plus, it’s got augmented reality selfie lenses, holiday-themed masks, props to paste on, Prisma-esque style transfers, influencer-suggested filters and art that helps you tell friends what you’re doing or ask them to hang out. This camera is a swipe away or tap away at all times, living a layer beneath the rest of Messenger.
Although Facebook Messenger is not the first to offer a visual communication application like Snapchat and Instagram, they believe that they would lure many users away from their competitors for the reason that it is not just based on photo sharing it is more of the messaging. It wants to help you make plans, express what’s on your mind and inform close friends what you’re up to.
If Messenger can make our day-to-day exchanges informal and fun, it may lure users away from its competitors and the established order of SMS. facebook must keep away from cluttering the app in ways that intervene with its comfort. from time to time just a few quick phrases is one of the best ways to get an idea throughout. but as smartphones turn into conduits of our identities, and messaging emerges as the guts of the cellular experience, our chat apps must flex to encompass every form of expression.
And that is where the right chance for Messenger is. Rather than trying to force the logistics of your being through a momentary happy platform like Snapchat or a photos-first app like Instagram, its camera is designed to amplify words rather than replace them.
