Looking to compete with the Halloween filters that are available on Snapchat, Facebook Live is releasing its own in order to get users in the holiday spirit -- allowing them to film real-time videos with a fun flair.

As HYPEBEAST reports, this isn't the first time that the social media giant has drawn inspiration from its more instantaneous competitor. An example of this is when it added an Instagram 'Stories' feature after it had bought the picture-posting app. For its Halloween filters, Facebook Live includes an angry pumpkin, a somber-faced Frankenstein, a witch that manically cackles and more -- which are offered for a limited time only. In terms of non-seasonal additions, a selection of cute animal faces are available.
