Facebook is rolling out a new feature on Facebook Messenger Day called Shear Your Day that enables people to narrate the last 24 hours of their life in pictures on its messenger designed to self-destruct after 24 hours. This is similar to SnapChats designed to send self-destructing photos or videos, and Facebook is adding a bit of difference to it.
