Facebook's new app for iOS and Android, Riff, allows you to make videos with your friends
Apart from Facebook and Messenger, Mark Zuckerberg's social network has churned out a host of other not-so-popular apps, like the Snapchat look-a9like Slingshot and Facebook Home, as well as several others. The social giant just increased the ranks of its apps with a new entrant - the video-centric Riff, which is already live on both Google's Play Store and the Apple App Store.

Riff allows you and your friends to collaborate on videos that are best described as "video stories". This is how it works - after you or anyone of your Facebook pals sets a topic and records the first portion of a new clip, you and the members of your social circle can enrich the video by recording something of your own. The resulting video project can either remain a Riff-exclusive or get shared on Facebook. 

From the looks of it, Faceebook is trying hard to emulate the success of Vine, arguably the most popular mobile app that focuses on video creation. Unlike Vine, however, Riff doesn't force you to make 6-second videos; there's no limit on their length. Riff is certainly another attempt for the social giant to amp up its game in the video department; let's see if Riff will pay off for Facebook.
