If this title doesn’t make any sense to you, don’t worry. I will explain. If you’re an iPhone 6s user, Facebook will be soon reinforcing its 3D touch-controls on its Facebook app, giving you many more fun features to play with.
So far, 3D touch offers users a limited set of actions. Users can long press on their screen and see a pop up that prompts them to take or upload a photo or video, as well as write a new post. It is understood that these actions are the most commonly used, so it makes sense for Facebook to incorporate them into 3D touch’s functionality.
Soon, users will be also able to have a peek at users profiles. This means that, by lightly pressing on others’ names or links, users will see a pop up window which will show them some basic information regarding the particular profile. If users want to see more, or want to explore another user’s profile, then they can press a little bit harder and pop into the user’s profile.
This sequence of actions is described as peek and pop by Apple and was introduced at the launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S. It’s only reasonable for Facebook to want to take advantage of each device’s features, in order to offer an intuitive, natural flow of actions to its users. According to reports, Facebook is planning on embedding the peek and pop functionality on profiles, pages, events, groups, cover photos, profile pictures and web links.
For the time being though, we have no official release date. However, it is said that Facebook is testing the feature on a group of users, and planning for a wider roll-out within the next couple of months.
