The Real Reason Why Facebook Cut It’s Lifestage and Groups Apps
High school students across the globe will no longer have access to Facebook’s Snapchat-like clone dubbed, Lifestage.
The app was recently pulled from app stores and will no longer target teens after only a year after its release to the public.
According to App Annie, a business intelligence company and analyst firm, Lifestage ranked #1,392 in the App Store’s social media category at the time the app was snipped from Facebook’s extensive cordage of apps and places for users to interact with others.
In addition, Facebook cut its Groups app which they say will now be part of the main platform.
Perhaps this is all part of a Facebook’s plan to launch a Pokemon-Go like groups within their apps so that groups of people will react to various calls to action. Kids will be able to use using glasses and goggles with phones and a whole digital world separate from real life will exist.
Maybe its part of Facebook’s goals to address the increasing safety concerns online after a young female was sexually assaulted on Facebook live this past year.
Nevertheless, a change is coming..
