Facebook May Be Releasing a New Camera App to Encourage People to Share More

Facebook is developing a standalone camera app to encourage users to take and share more photos and videos, sources tell The Wall Street Journal's Deepa Seetharaman. The app is still in early prototype stage, but as of now it opens to a camera and has a designated livestreaming feature (which would make sense, as Facebook has put a huge focus on its broadcast capabilities as of late). The app would counteract Facebook's decline in "original broadcast sharing"--the amount of personal updates and photos people post, like baby pictures and new job announcements--which dropped 21% year-over-year in mid-2015, according to The Information's Amir Efrati. http://www.inc.com/business-insider/facebook-working-on-new-camera-app.html
