Facebook told the media last September 30 that it will begin to connect its new update with social networking sites Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger. The new update will allow Instagram users to send messages to Messenger without making a Facebook account or changing applications. Other updates are more selfie stickers, animated message effects, and new post reactions. They will also add “watch together” so people can share videos with other users during a call, and a “vanish mode” if users want to remove messages when they close a chat.
