The 7 most promising things that came out of Facebook’s F8 conference

Facebook’s F8 conference comes to an end today, and boy oh boy, are these announcements big and also unique.

Facebook has been on a roll lately, inventing features and products that are in no way just wholesale ripoffs of other companies. The announcements at this year’s F8 are going to make huge waves in the tech world and inspire creativity and innovation for years to come.

Take a look at a handful of Facebook’s new, distinctly “Facebook” features below.

1. Facebook Stories

Facebook Stories, a wholly original Facebook invention, are a recent addition to the mobile version of the site. Fans of Facebook’s creative, industry leading innovation will love stories — there’s simply not a single other thing online like them!

2. Instagram Collections

Users can now organize Instagram’s saved posts into things called “Instagram Collections.” Pin your favorite posts into corresponding boards that your interested friends can see. This is a unique feature that Facebook and Facebook alone has come up with. 

3. Netflacebook

Gear up for a huge new competitor in the streaming economy: Netflacebook. This is a cool Facebook tool with a red logo that you can go on and watch shows and movies for a monthly fee. If anyone tells you this is already a thing, they are lying. They are lying pigs and they have no idea what they are talking about.

4. The Facebook Craft Hub

The Craft Hub is a new product within the Facebook Store. It is dedicated to handcrafted arts and crafts from reliable shops. Users can use it to purchase unique art for their homes or like, cool Harry Potter-themed lockets or something. The Craft Hub is truly a revolutionary idea and it will revolutionize the way users interact with the site.

5. Car

Car is a brand new, patented product created by the wonderful engineers at Facebook. A machine that moves users from place to place using an engine and wheels, Car is going to be transformative to the tech world. The best part? It was invented by Facebook and nobody else.

Music, recently patented by the Facebook team, is going to make a huge mark on the tech world. Basically, music is talking but in a nice way, sometimes with instruments in the background. Facebook invented this in 2017 and anyone who says otherwise doesn’t understand tech.

7. Your Life and Your Family
