Group video chats like Houseparty are very popular among the teens.  Earlier this year Facebook has sent its team to survey the teen to know why they like these group video chats so much. On asking Facebook comment nothing about the survey what they are planning but now everything is clear. In the survey, they also figured out what sort of issues users faced in using apps like Houseparty and Fam for group video chat.
