This means that Meta’s Instagram witnessed a grave decline in its users. Based on the analysis, it turns out that digital creators and influencers prefer Twitter over Instagram. And this is why Meta plans to develop an alternative app to Twitter.
Another reason for Meta’s novel step is Elon’s ‘ridiculous’ rules on Twitter. Since the Tesla boss took over Twitter last year, he imposed rules that are seemingly unacceptable for Twitteratis. At this point, if Meta comes up with an app like Twitter – with no premium subscriptions and blue-tick skirmishes – it has the potential to turn out to be a blockbuster.
What We Know About the Upcoming App
It is still early days, but there are already some interesting details about Meta’s upcoming app. It will be based on a similar framework to the one that powers Mastodon, a Twitter-like service that was launched in 2016. This suggests that the new app may have many of the same features as Mastodon, including decentralized servers, open-source code, and free software.
Apart from that, the app is also expected to be very user-friendly, making it easy for people to post and share their thoughts with others. This could potentially make it easier for Meta to compete with Twitter in terms of the user experience they offer.
Features We Can Expect From Meta’s App
At the moment, there are not too many details about what features we can expect from the app. However, some possibilities include:
– A timeline feature that allows users to scroll through recent posts from other users
– A way for users to set up profiles and view each other’s posts
– An algorithm that helps curate content within a certain topic or subject area
– Tools for managing followers and blocking any unwanted posts
– The ability to post photos, videos, and other media content
Thus, it looks like Meta’s new app will offer plenty of exciting features for users to explore. It remains to be seen how the app will perform when compared with Twitter and other social networks. But this could be a great opportunity for Meta to make some waves in the world of social media, especially in a situation where Elon-led Twitter is becoming a matter of controversy.
Nevertheless, it is essential to note here that Meta has not yet confirmed the launching date of the company. According to a spokesperson of Meta, the social media giant family company expects to launch it in the upcoming months.
