Face Filters: How People Reacted To Instagram Aping Snapchat Yet Again

Instagram's latest update allows users to add live effects to their selfies.

New Delhi:  Instagram yesterday rolled out the last major Snapchat feature it had yet to mimic - face filters. With this update, users can now add live effects to their selfies like koala ears and butterfly tiaras. Instagram announced in a blog post that they have added an initial set of eight photo filters to the photo sharing app, along with other new features like a 'rewind' button and an eraser tool.
 
Of course, given that Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram and WhatsApp were already under fire for aping arch-rival Snapchat's features like 24-hour stories, this latest update has drawn further ridicule from social media. Check out how people of Twitter reacted to the face filters update:
 
Some just wanted the chronological feed back
 
A few, at least, were happy
 
But for some, this latest update spelled doom for Snapchat
