    Starting with the core platform, Facebook has created a Specific Groups icon to let groups more engaging.

    • Instagram

    Giving less prominence to likes, Instagram’s new version focuses more on businesses and a new photo capturing UI.

    • Messenger


    Messenger too is getting its own priorities. Focusing more on groups, now you can set status messages or photos with only the people you like.

    And, the company has said to be working on reducing the app’s size too. The new app upgrade would certainly be less than 30MB of size.

    Besides these, Zuckerberg delighted everyone by announcing the “Desktop version of Messenger” – one of the most requested features from the company. And this would be available from later this year.
