Facebook recently released its new app for IOS users which aims video-loving adolescents.
The app called Lifestage can be downloaded by anyone but by seeing the profiles of other users it seems reserved for those 21 years of age or younger. However, users over 22 can also use the app but they will only be able to see their profile due to the fact that the app is targeting high school classmates.
To complete your profile you must take videos and selfies of your likes, dislikes, and facial expressions. Facebook revealed that the app’s main goal is to allow users to discover video profiles created by others in their school to learn more about them.
The app is created by the 19-year-old genius Michael Sayman and is designed to capture the Snapchat generation. The app’s creator has learned to code at a very young age and has already created 4Snaps, a photo charades app. The mastermind behind the Facebook app has received an invitation from Mark Zuckerberg to visit Facebook.
When answering more of the profile-related questions, the user unlocks more fields. By joining all the videos, a remarkable video is created and can be watched by others.
This new app does not need the user to have a Facebook profile and can be used just by signing up. When the user mentions his high school, videos of the user’s school will be displayed. When your friends update their profiles, the videos will then be visible in the feed, just like Facebook. If you are not interested in the post, you can swipe to skip it but if you want to see the answers you just have to tap the post.
Although during the signing up process the users select the school they go to, the app doesn’t really have the certainty that the user actually goes to that school.
Only by having 20 people joining the app it will reveal your friends from school so the teens are forced to convince their classmates to use the app.
When your school is unlocked you can see the profiles of your school community and see which users have the same interests as you and connect with them.
