Facebook To Launch Anonymous Chat App After Slingshot Failure
The policy of Facebook to force the users for registering with their real names drew criticism recently. The social media giant is able to win the trust of a huge community by using this policy. However, the anonymous chat apps like Whisper and Secret are fascinating the people all over the world. As a result, the interest of the public is shifting towards apps that offer private chatting facilities. To excel further in competition with other social media apps, Facebook is also looking to launch an anonymous chat app that would allow the people to chat without disclosing their real names and identities. Facebook recently launched SlingShot messaging app to tackle Snapchat but it can now be said that Slingshot missed its target. The company is now eyeing for another milestone in the messaging apps sector.
The resources inside the company have reported New York Times that Facebook is planning to launch a stand-alone mobile app that would support anonymous chatting features. This app will keep the users to Facebook who were running away for using apps like Whisper and Secret. The remarks from the CEO of Facebook were also in favor of allowing people to interact without showing their real identities. The time has come when Facebook has to listen to the demands of a huge community of people in favor of such apps. It is sort of burden of many people to use their real names and data for logging into a social network. The new approach of Facebook will fascinate the users even more. The real purpose of Facebook would still stay alive on its official app.
