6 Facebook-made apps worth checking out
When we talk about Facebook apps, the first thing that comes to mind is the Facebook app itself, and the Messenger app. But the company has also made a bunch of apps that can help improve your social media experience. Here are our top picks.
First up is Free Basics which is part of the Internet.org initiative. With this app, you can connect to Facebook and other websites for free with the help of partner telcos – Globe and Smart.
MSQRD lets you record video selfies with animations as well as Face Swap effect, just like with Snapchat. After recording, you can immediately send it to your favorite messenger and social networks. Like with Free Basics, this one is only available on Android devices.
If you’re dealing with multiple groups on Facebook, then this app can make things more organized. It shows your groups in a neat grid, and allows you to create a group for just about anything. From there you can post photos, links, or message anyone in the group.
Facebook Pages Manager
If you’re managing a Facebook page for a business or a publication, this app can help you do it on-the-go. Like with the standard Facebook app, you can post updates and photos, respond to comments, and reply to private messages. There’s push notifications as well as Page Insights if you want to get into the numbers.
Strobe for Messenger
Like sending GIFs to your friends? This app can help you do that. You can also choose from a number of effects to make it look more exciting, then just send it straight to your friend via Messenger.
Sound Clips for Messenger
Here’s another one to spice up your messaging. Sound Clips, as the name suggests, lets you send pre-recorded sounds and phrases on Messenger based on your mood and topic.
