At Facebook's F8 Conference, Company Takes a Big Jab at Snapchat

Since then, Facebook has struggled to make money from the $598 VR headsets.

Zuckerberg made his comments during Facebook's annual F8 developer conference in San Jose. SNAP, as the first mainstream augmented reality platform. "So the camera needs to be more central than the text box in all of our apps".

The US man wanted for killing Godwin in OH and then posting a video of the murder on Facebook fatally shot himself on Tuesday after a brief pursuit in neighbouring Pennsylvania, police said. The killer later used Facebook Live to boast about the shooting.

Facebook came under severe criticism for not removing the murder video for more than two hours. Acknowledging the issue, Zuckerberg said that Facebook has "a lot of work" to do.

While the news rapidly spread widely across the world, the Twitter users seemed to be divided over the fact, whether Snap Inc. got the upper hand on Facebook or vice versa.

Interestingly Zuckerberg also spoke about the perception that Facebook was copying Snapchat too much, and said he wasn't anxious about the criticism.

"Even though we were a little slow to add cameras to all our apps, I'm confident that now we're going to push this augmented reality camera forward", he said.

According to Zuckerberg, Facebook for the past decade has been focused on connecting friends and family, but the next focus is building a community to help keep society informed and safe.

Facebook sees visual communication as the way to reverse those declines.

The company launched them a year ago in Messenger but they were over-hyped and not many people use them.

The company also announced Tether-tenna, a new kind of "insta-infrastructure" where a small helicopter tethered to a wire containing fibre and power can be deployed immediately to bring back connectivity in case of emergency. The company also introduced group video hangouts, and showcased examples of ways people can make video watching more social and interactive.
