The social networking website has been working on a lot of changes lately. Last week, Facebook had confirmed that it is experimenting features on iOS version of its app with the way people post updates on the social network. In its pilot programme, it allows users to schedule an expiration time that varies from one hour to seven days for the post they publish.

Recently, Facebook had tried its hands at ephemerality of posts with Slingshot, an app similar to Snapchat. The newly launched app allows the users to sign up for the service with their mobile phone number and connect with friends in their phone’s contact list without requiring Facebook accounts.

Earlier, Facebook had launched stickers for web users and acquired speech recognition and translation app Jibbigo. Facebook started rolling out its ’privacy checkup’ with the help of a blue dinosaur system to extend privacy setting for sharing information and posts.

It is also testing a new feature of adding stickers while posting the comments, but currently service is live only for some users. If it gets a positive feedback, then the company plans to roll out this feature to everyone. In July this year, Facebook had announced a video discovery tool to surface higher-quality videos by analyzing how long users actually watch each video.
