Facebook iOS app is being updated with support for Live Photos. With the new Facebook app Live Photos update, anyone with an iOS device running iOS 9 or later can view Live Photos. The rollout has just begun, so it could take a while before you get the update.
Apple introduced Live Photos with the launch of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Live Photos are basically moving photos that capture before and after moments of a picture. A short video clip is taken before and after the picture, which is then stitched together to form a moving Live Photo. The feature is only available on the new iPhones and uses 3D Touch to be activated.
