Tech Thursdays: Facebook introduces Spooktacular Halloween features

Halloween is on Tuesday and we can’t wait for the candy, creative costumes and scary movies! Facebook is getting into the Halloween spirit with its own tricks and treats this week.

According to Mashable, Facebook will start sending notifications to people about Halloween events near them and your statuses will have new Halloween themed backgrounds. Facebook Camera (in the Facebook mobile app) will add spooky masks and frames for your photos, video chats and livestreams. You can also try on costumes or use them to scare your friends in Messenger video chat!

The Facebook Camera feature will let you play as a trick-or-treater trying to escape a haunted house. All of these features are available from October 27th through Halloween.

Would I use these features? Definitely! I think it’s a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit.
