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 stop targeting teens 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 clipped from Facebook’s extensive cordage of apps and places for users to interact with others.
Facebook also cut its Groups app which they say will now be part of the main platform.
Perhaps this is all part of Facebook’s plan to launch Pokemon-Go like groups within their apps so that people can react to various calls to action.
Kids will be able to use glasses and goggles with phones and enter a whole digital world separate from real life.
Or, maybe this is part of Facebook’s goal to address the increasing safety concerns online after a young female was sexually assaulted on Facebook live this past year and several others committed suicide or other acts of violence on the platform.
Nevertheless, a change is coming.
