  • Facebook using facial recognition and object recognition to help you add visual elements to your photos and videos
  • The phone becomes the enabler and as such giving access to VR and AR to all, glasses and headsets taking a backseat
  • Being an information provider is key and the expectation is that brands need to add value to the Facebook user community that is both entertaining and stimulating
  • AR is a logical evolution of captioning photos and videos with comments or additional information which will engage your audience
  • The Facebook algorithm is already favouring video content, AR and VR is most certainly the next ‘start content’ to be rewarded with higher reach and visibility

[00:23:05] Facebook inviting us to be innovative with Social Virtual Reality:
