Instagram Introduces ‘Face Filters,' Another Snapchat-Like Feature

Facebook, the parent company of Instagram, has been criticized for copying a number of Snapchat's features

Instagram on Tuesday announced a feature called "face filters," the latest effort to steal the thunder from upstart Snap, which is the parent company of Snapchat. 

Instagram's face filters allows users to add graphics to a selfie, then it can be added to a video or photo and sent through direct messaging or added to a public story — much like Snapchat's Lenses.

In addition to face filters, Instagram featured editing tools for video and photo.
