Facebook patents ’emotion detecting’ selfie filters

Facebook's selfie masks could get way more personal.
A newly public patent shows that Facebook is eyeing tech that automatically chooses an animated selfie based on your current emotional state.
The patent filing (link), which was filed in 2016 but made public on Thursday, outlines a system for "identifying an emotion" and "selecting, based on the emotion, a mask from a set of masks." A "mask" is Facebook's preferred term for the selfie filters that add animations to your face.
