Makes sense since Zuckerberg repeatedly tried to purchase Snapchat in the past, even bidding a whopping $3 billion USD for the app. The “masks” feature will allow users to apply a selection of animal filters as well as a set of limited-edition Halloween-themed reactions like a cackling witch, a sad Frankenstein, an angry pumpkin, and a skeletal thumbs up.
