Facebook’s new Riff app lets friends create videos together

Facebook has launched yet another standalone app, called Riff, that will give you and your friends the chance to go viral.

Riff app is designed to let users share videos with their family and friends, but it goes above and beyond that. With Riff, friends can actually add to the video that was originally shared, and then the friends of that person can add to it, and so on and so forth. All it takes is logging into the app via Facebook credentials, and seeing the videos that have been shared by friends and family.
Anyone can start by creating a 20-second video, assigning a topic, like #AprilFools. Then your friends can view it and choose to add their own clips on that topic. Once a friend adds a clip to your video, your friend’s friends will also be shown the video in Riff and will be able to add to it.

Anyone can see your videos, but only your friends can add to them, and then their friends can add to them, and then their friends – and so on and so on.

“The potential pool of creative collaborators can grow exponentially from there, so a short video can become an inventive project between circles of friends that you can share to Facebook, or anywhere on the internet, at any time,” Facebook says.

Riff is a free download and it’s available now in the iOS App Store.
