Activists and users have been particularly frustrated by the absence of an appeals process when their posts are taken down. Users can also appeal Facebook's decision to preserve content they'd reported as a violation of the company's rules.

The teaser video also shows off some of the augmented reality games that are coming to Snapchat. There are games that will pit users against each other and the one who secures the high score wins. There's one game that is basically a virtual weight-lifting session using eyebrows.

To get started, a user will need to tap on the Lens icon and then follow the on-screen directions.

The first of the previewed Snappable games include an Asteroids-style space shooter, a kiss-blowing game, a weightlifting game which makes use of your forehead, an egg-catching competition and a dance party.

Snappables will start rolling out on iOS and Android globally this week. But only time will tell if this new endeavor will succeed.
