Technology is in its new storming outlook with no strings attached and a lot more fun intact. The king of social media, Facebook is now ready to introduce a new facial recognition tech start-up FacioMetrics. Facebook has confirmed the acquisition of facial recognition start-up called FacioMetrics, which will help the social media company rally and improve its video and photo competences.

We’re enthusiastic to welcome the FacioMetrics team who will help convey more fun effects to photos and videos and build more comfortable social media interactions that will surely help people to enjoy their time that they spend on engaging themselves using Facebook. How people stake and interconnect is altering and things like masks and other effects allow people to express themselves in fun and artistic ways,' a Facebook spokesperson told a press agency.

FacioMetrics is a Facial recognition tech start up which was initiated in 2015. The start-up uses artificial intelligence to give facial image analysis competencies to applications that run on smartphones. Using FacioMetrics to let users of Facebook, or subsidiaries such as Instagram, have fun with photos or video could be a counter-move to those kinds of features offered in 'filters' on vanishing message app Snapchat.

Facebook which was launched in the year 2004 has certainly advanced its horizon of users. This strong new introduction of advanced technology will surely emphasize the potential of users in the interface. Social media is now hiking up with new agendas to run the business more widely and ensuring that the users enjoy every phase of their time when they are engaged with it.
