Facebook capped a tumultuous week of stock trading by announcing a new iPhone app, "Facebook Camera."
The app, which is strikingly similar to the recently purchased Instagram, allows users to take, edit and upload photos directly to Facebook. You can also comment and like photos from the app.
In an interview with All Things D, the app's product manager said the Instagram team had no hand in developing the app.
Why use this instead of Facebook to post photos?
The app allows you to edit photos in ways Facebook's main app does not. It also uploads photos faster and is an "easier, more elegant experience," according to USA TODAY's Brett Molina.

Wireless carriers are struggling to meet demand for data as more and more people upgrade to smartphones. Some carriers, like Verizon, are killing unlimited data plans to discourage rampant data usage.
Verizon, AT&T and other carriers are also seeking to "offload" customers from their cellular networks and onto local Wi-Fi spots. This helps keep the networks unclogged and will help customers avoid overages on their data plans.
