   I downloaded my Facebook data        Like Mark Zuckerberg I too had some of my information leaked to Cambridge Analytica

A new feature should be ready in a few weeks. People can soon draw scribbles before or during recording and then move the camera around to see the markings stay in place. "That has prompted the social network to make Stories available to brands, to merge it with Messenger Day (yet another Snapchat-like feature) and to mull over the possibility of allowing users to create Stories on PC". "Currently, it only does that when it's confident about the object recognition, such as in optimal light conditions", Techcrunch writes.

Facebook is giving stories a boost by rolling out AR doodles and Instagram's Boomerang to its camera feature suite, Tech Crunch reports. With the availability of the AR-based 3D drawing feature clear signifies that a major push is being given to the Stories and it is said to help increase the popularity of stories and drive user engagement. It is Facebook's turn to add some flair to Stories by introducing Boomerang's GIFs along with the ability to draw in the Facebook Camera.

On the other hand, Instagram's Boomerang feature is going to replace the Camera button on the Stories on Facebook. "Stories" was first implemented in Snapchat, but has quickly been adopted by rivals Facebook and Instagram, which have launched their own Stories.
