Unlike placing a regular sticker or emoji on your pictures, World Lenses uses 3D objects on the image. You will have to pan your smartphone s camera to capture different angles of the effect. When you move your camera around, the World Effect will stay in the same location. Facebook says that currently, they support only a heart, arrow, and robot, while there are bubbles and words that read “love”, ‘bae”, “heart”, and “miss you”.
