A couple of months ago, Facebook updated its photo uploader on its iOS apps to allow users to easily add stickers, filters, and text.
Now, it’s pushing that functionality to the web.
When you upload a new photo on the desktop version of Facebook, you’ll now see a new paintbrush icon next to the tag icon. Clicking on that will take you to a barebones photo editor.
From there, you can add text, crop, apply a handful of filters, and add tons of stickers.
The popularity of apps like Snapchat, where sticker-adding is basically required, is clearly influencing Facebook. People upload millions upon millions of photos each day on the site, and this is just another way to encourage more content.
It appears to be rolling out right now. So check for the paintbrush icon the next time you upload a photo.[h/t The Next Web]
