Facebook has updated its iOS app to include native video sharing only days after Twitter released its own video-native app, Vine.

Facebook users can now record and post video to the Timeline, though there is no emphasis on short bursts of creativity (or porn) like you’d find on Vine. Instead, Facebook is merely ensuring it does not get left behind in the feature department, as users can now post photos, video, voice and text within the same app.

To that end, Facebook has migrated its voice memo feature from Messenger to the app itself as it did last week with the Android version, and the company has also improved the look and relevance of its Nearby listings, as conveyed above.

    Why doesn’t Facebook just integrate all its iOS Apps? They have (at least!) five separate apps with overlapping feature sets.
