You’re Going To Start Seeing Live Photos on Facebook

You may have forgotten about Live Photos, a newish iPhone feature that’s only available on the 6S and 6S Plus.

When the Live Photos feature is turned on, the camera automatically captures the first 1.5 seconds before pressing the shutter and 1.5 seconds after it. It’s anti-FOMI (Fear of Missing It) technology.

Live Photos weren’t super useful, because you couldn’t share them in many places (except on Tumblrand privately, to friends with iPhones) – until today.

You can now post Live Photos with the Facebook iOS app.

The feature is rolling out to some iOS users today, and will arrive on more iOS devices early next year.

It’s easy – just post a photo from the News Feed per usual, then tap the lower right hand corner where it says “Live” to make sure you upload the image as a Live Photo.

But there’s a catch: Only iOS users will be able to view Live Photos in the News Feed, at least for now.

Pro-tip: make sure you have iOS 9.1 or newer for shooting Live Photos.

The camera will sense when you are lowering and raising the phone, so you won’t capture a million Live Photos of your pocket.

And for sharing Live Photos in other places, try Live GIF ($2), an app that turns Live Photos into GIFs and videos.
