From Facebook video embedding to 3D videos and advanced commenting, Facebook unveiled its plans to continue moving beyond social media to become a complete content system, much like Google.
Over the last couple of years, Facebook has unveiled numerous new tools and integrations within their site that takes it beyond its original social network capabilities. It’s now attempting to rival YouTube as a video publishing platform and wants to facilitate all of your communications through its Messenger App, which has replaced texting and even email for its current users.
