Facebook is testing a pop-out video viewer for its iOS app

It appears that Facebook — that bastion of experimentation — is trying out a new way of displaying online video. Some users recently spotted what has been dubbed “carousel” style viewing in Facebook’s iOS app.

There also appears to be a pop-out, picture-in-picture style function at play as well. The video pulls out of position, allowing the user to scroll up or down while watching. True multitasking there.
