Meta’s New App ‘Codenamed P92’
Mark Zuckerberg-led social media giant – Meta – is developing a decentralized text-based app called Codenamed P92. This app, based on a decentralized framework, will allow users to login through their existing Instagram credentials and offer features similar to that of Twitter.
Login Through Instagram Credentials
The new app will use existing Instagram data such as names, profile photos and followers, among other things. This may raise some privacy concerns which is why the company has also brought onboard the legal team to work on any issues before its launch.
Similar Feature Set To That Of Twitter
At launch, the feature set of this new app by Meta is expected to be analogous to that of Twitter but with additional options for commenting on posts and messages added later. A spokesperson from Meta said that the company believes there’s an opportunity for a separate space where creators and public figures can share timely updates about their interests.
Recent Technical Glitches And Outages Experienced By Twitter
Prior to this development, Musk’s chaotic takeover of Twitter had resulted in several technical glitches as well as outages experienced by the platform which further adds motivation towards the release of this new decentralized text-based app by Meta.
Privacy Concerns Addressed Before Launch
As user data and privacy issues are crucial when it comes to social media platforms, it makes sense for Meta to take every precautionary measure possible before releasing its new product in public – including bringing in legal experts who can address any privacy related queries and complaints at an early stage itself.
