The Social Media giant Facebook has been in a transition mode for quite a bit and the new agenda in the company is to facilitate anonymous texting by the users. This move has taken Facebook a long time to put into practice, but it is supposed to elevate the fortunes of the company further. The app will enable the users to send text messages to friends in an anonymous identity.
There was a great pressure on the social media giant to force this app into practice, especially from the gay communities. The news about the app was revealed by The New York Times and it also mentioned two people who already know about the app. The app is in development phase for the last one year and the responsibility of its development has been taken up by the former co-founder of the branch, Josh Miller.
This branch will be concerned with discussion groups on a small scale. A letter had been directed to Facebook by Miller which stated, “With the goal of helping people connect with others around their interests. Their pitch [Facebook] to us was: ‘Build Branch at Facebook scale!’”
The new app will do justice to discussions and also allow the users to hide their real names behind curtains. The launch of the app is expected to take place very soon, however the experts are skeptical about the fact how the mentioned app will be incorporated into Facebook.
People usually take refuge of pseudo names on the internet and hence, the concept is old in the market. It will actually help the users who do not want to use their real names, for putting across their opinion about a certain subject.
After launching the app, Facebook will come in direct competition with Reddit and other anonymous sharing apps. The fans have great expectations from the upcoming app from the social media giant and we will have to wait and see how it performs on the Facebook platform.
