Facebook features to stay connected with your friends

The International Friendship Day is here! This is the perfect occasion to let your friends know how precious and loved they are!

In the era where social distancing is a must, we are lucky to be a part of a generation where technology has enhanced so much, giving us plentiful online forums for social interactions.

Here’s how you can celebrate Friendship Day on Facebook this year –

Messenger Rooms

Spend quality time with friends through group video calls with Messenger Rooms. Create a room right from Messenger or Facebook, and invite anyone to join your video call, even if they don’t have a Facebook account. Host celebrations, or just hang out on the couch with friends. 

If you have the Messenger app, you can also be creative and explore various AR effects like bunny ears, and new AI-powered features including immersive 360 backgrounds and mood lighting, for a more interactive and fun experience.

Start a Watch Party

Instead of sending your friends that funny video you saw on Facebook, watch it with them by starting a Watch Party. This feature lets you watch videos on Facebook together in real time. Tap “Write post” and select “Watch Party”. Search for your videos, add to queue, and tap done. Now sit back and bring out the popcorn.

Facebook Groups

One step away from bringing friends together, Facebook Group helps you create memories and stay connected.

To create a Group:

Click the three lines on the  bottom right of your mobile and select Groups.
Tap the plus sign on the top right and set your group privacy settings to Secret
Invite your friends to join!

Connect with Friends on Facebook Live

Facebook Live enables you to share your experiences and perspectives in real time, with the people who matter to you – whether you’re someone who wants to broadcast to friends and family, or connect across continents. Do away with the distance and, connect in real time with your friends on  Facebook Live.

To share live video, simply tap “What’s on your mind?” at the top of News Feed and select the Live Video icon. You can write a quick description and select the audience before going live. During your broadcast, you’ll see the number of live viewers, the names of friends who are tuning in, and can respond to comments in real time,

So what are you waiting for? Don’t let social distancing keep you apart! Gather the crew  and have a fabulous Friendship Day !
