Facebook Take On Instagram

29 Aug

Rumour has it that Facebook is set to launch artisitic photo filters, like those currently found on Instagram, that can be quickly applied to uploaded photos on its mobile application.  PSFK reports:

Engineers at Facebook have suggested that they will introduce almost a dozen photo filters, including old-style camera lenses and grainy film effects that are found on Instagram.

Facebook hopes to lure the 8 million Instagram users to start using its mobile application for photo uploads. No release date has been confirmed for the photo filters, but Facebook engineers predict it would be ready in the upcoming months.
