Making Collaborative Video With Friends On Facebook Is No Longer A Dream; Here's Presenting Riff
Facebook is now launching an app which will help people in making collaborative videos with friends. Soon after twitter launched Periscope; its video streaming app, Facebook has also announced that it will not lag behind. This new app is named riff and is available for android and iOS platforms.
On Wednesday, the 1st of April 2015, Josh Miller; the product manager of Facebook launched this app which will enable people to make collaborative videos with their friends. With the use of this app a video of 20 seconds can be shot. The video with the run time of 20 seconds or less can be uploaded on the social networking site, after which a host of hashtags can be created to define the topic of the video.
More clips can be added to the video by people in the friend list. According to Miller, "a potential pool of creative collaborators" can help in making a short video into an inventive project. The app has a few positive and negative points. The pros are that the maker of the first video clip can delete other clips, if it is not as per his or her preference or liking. If any of the videos happen to be of a disturbing nature, then those clips can be reported to the company as well.
The negatives on the other hand, are that the videos cannot be liked or commented on. Moreover, the videos cannot be edited after being put up and nor can they be imported from the phones memory. This new app is a great addition to the existing apps which enable the masses to create short video clips. It has great mass appeal and is sure to be a hit with the younger demography. The app will help people in socializing even better.
