Facebook today launched Messenger Day worldwide for all its users. The company’s Snapchat clone was first announced in October last year and was made available for limited testing in some countries. Messenger Day is similar to Snapchat Stories or WhatsApp Status and allows one to post photos and videos in their ‘day’ that will automatically disappear after 24 hours.
Facebook added Reactions to its standard status updates awhile ago now, so the company is bringing the faces to another one of its services.
Stories is a big thing, and Snap should be happy that the mega-popular Snapchat feature has been copied so much.
Facebook wants to be everywhere you might even attempt to access the social network, and video is a big push for the company as well.
Facebook wants you to stay inside of its app for as long as possible (and maybe even longer), so making reasons for you not to leave it is important.
In the last couple of years, Facebook has been strongly pushing video content on its platform. Now, in a bid to expand its video offering and revenue sources, Facebook is reportedly considering building a dedicated app for set-top boxes like the Apple TV.
