I personally feel like Facebook is having a midlife crisis, as Facebook is always trying to appease teenagers and trying to get along with the new youth trends. To back my argument, you can take the example of Instagram. Facebook found out that it is now losing its popularity among the teenagers, so it tried to introduce another platform for them.
As we know, recent trends are all about musical.ly and TikTok, and they have now merged. So, how could Facebook stay away from the new direction? Noticeably, Facebook has already released TikTok competitor app called Lasso. Users can create funny and entertaining short videos using Lasso, similar to TikTok.
The app is available both on Android and iOS platforms. Lasso can be used as TikTok, and apart from that, Lasso can also be helpful to make short Vine videos. To log in, users have to use their Instagram account or must create an account through Facebook. One has to allow Lasso to access profile page, videos, and photos. After setting up, it provides an endless field of videos which are played automatically as passing by.
Facebook’s teenage use has been reduced, as the number of users which were recorded in 2014 among teens have been continuously declining, and have now become nearly two-thirds. So, the move to endeavor new ideas is justified thoroughly for Facebook.
