In order to increase social interactions between users, Facebook has been working hard to add features to its platform. Among these, sharing disappearing photos and videos is one of the most unique and entertaining. This new feature is called My Day, and it lets you share photos and videos with friends without posting them on your timeline. My Day comes packed with filters and stickers, and the content you share will disappear after 24 hours. If the capabilities of My Day excite you, follow the steps in this tutorial to learn how to use it.

Note: The content of My Day will only be posted inside Facebook Messenger, the chat app of Facebook.

Make sure that you always use the latest version of the Messenger app to enjoy new features.
