According to sources, Meta has presented its staff with plans for a text-driven social network that aims to rival Twitter. This information was reported by the BBC. Meta plans to compete with Twitter!
Meta’s upcoming text-based social network may enable users to follow the same accounts they already follow-on Instagram, according to sources. Additionally, it may allow them to transfer followers from decentralized platforms like Mastodon.
Meta plans to compete with Twitter: A Meta spokesperson confirmed that the company is developing a separate decentralized social network for sharing text updates with creators and public figures in mind. The platform is currently being coded, as stated by Meta’s chief product officer Chris Cox, however, no official release date has been announced yet.
Leaked screenshots of the app have surfaced online and are believed to be authentic by insiders who spoke with BBC reporters. If accurate, the design will likely resemble Twitter’s familiar layout.
The upcoming text-based social network, codenamed P92, has the potential to become a more significant competitor to Elon Musk’s Twitter than either BlueSky or Mastodon.
Although many disenchanted users have joined these alternatives, building a new community from scratch on a different platform is challenging.
In contrast, Instagram already boasts an enormous user base of roughly two billion according to Meta (although its figures cannot be verified). If even 25% of these users are enticed into utilizing P92, it would immediately surpass Twitter’s estimated 300 million active accounts.
While Meta claims that it seeks “inspiration” from other products for its developments, critics may argue that Facebook’s Stories feature was based on Snapchat and Reels on Instagram blatantly resembles TikTok.
