Facebook is reportedly working on its own standalone camera app, alongside its own live video app platform. The company is hoping people will create, and share more content, reports The Wall Street Journal.




Their sources also say that the app will have two standout features: still photos, and the ability to broadcast live video, quickly. Thanks to video/picture sharing services like Snapchat, Facebook is wanting to jump into the same pool, and it makes complete sense.


Facebook already has plenty of apps and services for sharing photos and videos, acquiring the likes of Instagram. Facebook is reportedly seeing original content, like status updates and other personal sharing, is on the decline - so this new injection of competition against Snapchat could work. The social network says that the amount of sharing done in your News Feed is at "similar to levels in prior years".
