Facebook Tests New ‘Green Screen’ Creation Option for Facebook Stories

Published

on

This could be a handy one for Facebook Stories creators.

As highlighted by user Mamun Billah, Facebook is now testing a new ‘Green screen’ option within the Facebook Stories creative tools, which will enable users to overlay their video over a selected video or still image.

As you can see in this example, shared by social media expert Matt Navarra, the new Green Screen option would be available within your Stories creation tools. Once selected, users will be able to add a photo or video from their Camera Roll, which will then be added as the background. Users will then be able to film themselves or post a still image that would be overlaid over that background visual.

As you may note, down the bottom of the second screen, the option actually comes from Instagram, where the Green Screen tool is already available. TikTok also provides similar, where it’s proven particularly popular, while Twitter recently started to experiment with its own background tools for Fleets.

Given this, it’s not entirely original, or even novel in such usage, but it will add another element to Facebook Stories, which could provide the option to a range of people who’ve not used the same on other platforms. 

That could also open up new creative considerations for brands looking to add Facebook Stories into their content mix. Facebook Stories still doesn’t seem like a major consideration, but its top of feed placement makes it a potentially valuable branding tool for those that can get it right. 

New options like this only enhance that opportunity, and it’s worth considering the potential of such as they’re rolled out more broadly in the app.

There’s no word on a full roll-out of the option, but some users have access to the Green Screen option in Facebook Stories right now.

The Most Visited Websites in the World - 2023 Edition [Infographic]

Google remains the most-visited website in the world, while Facebook is still the most frequented social platform, based on web traffic. Well, actually, YouTube is, but YouTube’s only a partial social app, right?

The findings are displayed in this new visualization from Visual Capitalist, which uses SimilarWeb data to show the most visited websites in bubble chart format, highlighting the variance in traffic.

As you can see, following Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are the next most visited social platforms, which is likely in line with what most would expect – though the low numbers for TikTok probably stand out, given its dominance of modern media zeitgeist.

But there is a reason for that – this data is based on website visits, not app usage, so platforms like TikTok and Snapchat, which are primarily focused on the in-app experience, won’t fare as well in this particular overview.

In that sense, it’s interesting to see which social platforms are engaging audiences via their desktop offerings.

You can check out the full overview below, and you can read Visual Capitalist’s full explainer here.
