For better or worse, Facebook is trying really hard to copy Snapchat. In the past few months the giant social network has added different features that, if you ask us, are seemingly inspired by the app with the ghost mascot. And its latest feature follows a similar trend. With its Camera Effects Platform, Facebook will let users make their own frame for profile pictures and videos. Now, you can't just display whatever you want on your page, as Facebook does need to approve your creations.

The new tool isn't targeted at individual users as much as it is businesses or people who are planning an event, such as a wedding or party. Essentially, you want others to use your frames, like what Snapchat offers with custom Geofilters. You can start making your own here, all you have to do is log in to your Facebook account and follow the steps on that page.
