In recent times, we all have notice how Meta has grown in its features, especially with its frequent adaptations of features and tools from other similar social media platforms. In fact, the owner of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg has announced plans that Meta is coming up with a decentralized text-based app.
This was disclosed in statement made by the spokesperson of Meta although he spoke briefly on it without revealing more details on when the decentralised text-based app will be realized.
The spokesperson for Meta said: “We’re exploring a standalone decentralized social network for sharing text updates. We believe there’s an opportunity for a separate space where creators and public figures can share timely updates about their interests.”
MoneyControl first disclosed that the new decentralised text-based app will be called P92, even as it is still under development and review.
From the source materials published on the app, the P92 Meta decentralized text-based app will allow users log in to the app using their Instagram credentials.
Also, Platformer has announced that the app development will be handled by the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri. And Meta has made plans to bring in their legal team to forestall issues with privacy even before the app is launched.
Meta’s plans to bring in a decentralized text-based app is said to be an attempt of the company building a platform that is almost similar to Twitter and MoneyControl has reported that the new decentralised text-based app has plans of supporting ActivityPub to make it easier for users to connect with other platform like Mastodon.
