Facebook Has A New App So You Know Where All Your Friends Are
Well… That’s a little creepy.
Just when you think you've downloaded all the apps you think you need, Facebook starts developing another one.
According to The Verge, the social media platform is developing a new messaging app called Threads that’s meant to promote constant, intimate sharing of location, speed and battery life between your 'close friends' list.
Apparently we need to know when Janet is on 11 percent battery life...
The app will be a companion app to Instagram and we'll be able to share information along with more typical text, photo, and video messages using Instagram’s creative tools.
Catch up on the latest Smallzy’s Surgery podcast:
The Verge says the app is being testing internally at Facebook, and Instagram has declined to comment.
Today spoke to tech expert Charlie Brown this morning who voiced his concerns with the younger audience who will have access to this app.
“This [location sharing] is one of the most popular features on Snapchat and technically I’ve got no problem with it.
“The issue though is that this app is going to be targeting to the younger area of the community. They’re going after Facebook which is very popular with 15-20 year olds and younger.”
