Apart from the new features, Facebook is also making the panel larger and adding a camera window in the status composer. It seems like the social media giant is facing issues getting people to use the feature on its platform.

Facebook is giving stories a boost by rolling out AR doodles and Instagram's Boomerang to its camera feature suite, Tech Crunch reports. Facebook's users in America have fallen out of love with Facebook in a huge number and the survey says that over 9% of them have already deleted their accounts. At the moment the wrapping functionality only works in optimal lighting conditions, when the object recognition algorithm detects the presence with assurance.

"We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them", said John Barnett, a Camera Product Manager in Facebook.

The company has only added pastel gradient colours as part of the feature and it could add additional brushes in the future. To that end, Facebook-owned Instagram just confirmed to TechCrunch that it is building a new data portability tool so users can download a copy of everything they've put on the service, including photos, videos and messages.

Cambridge Analytica developed an app, which Facebook inevitably granted permission for, that would be able to mine data from a users "likes", which according to data scientists could be used to "automatically and accurately to predict a range of highly sensitive personal attributes".
