Just recently Facebook has made available the option to ‘Doodle’ on your photos before uploading them to the social network. It seems much similar to the functionalities of Snapchat and that it adds a touch of creativity to Facebook.
As the ‘Doodle’ name implies, the functionality allows users to doodle on their Facebook photos before uploading in ways such as drawing attention to an object in the image, to scribble on a friends face or painting a picture to add the photo.
It is still in the process of being rolled out, so if it’s not available users right now, it may be in the near future.
Within the Facebook app itself, users will tap on the edit button on the image. From the list of editing tools the user will choose ‘doodle’. To select different colour users are able to drag their finger up and down the toolbar and also change the size of the pen. Users can then drag their finger along the screen to doodle on the image.
It was announced back in June that the company was allowing for photo-editing tools to its mobile apps. It was then they allowed for filters, stickers and to add messages but only now can you free-draw on the photos. It was back in 2013 that Snapchat declined Facebook’s offering of a $3 billion dollar acquisition, so it seems they have set out to have their own Snapchat-like feature.
The feature certainly adds a new level of creativity to the world famous mobile app.
The Facebook app is available for a free download from the Google Play and iTunes App Store.
