It's only been a day since Facebook released the new feature and looks like people are already complaining

Facebook, the world's largest social network with nearly 1.86 billion users, denies it got inspired from Snapchat and says the idea came from Facebook users.
Last month, Facebook-owned WhatsApp launched 'Status' which mimicked Snapchat. Following massive backlash, the company said they will roll back the feature and restore its text status feature.
