Facebook showed its employees a group video chat platform named ‘Bonfire’. The app allows the users to have a group video chat with the friends. 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.

Facebook knows teens and young generation are much into video chatting. So the company is targeting the young generation in order to deliver new apps. It will be quite interesting to see how Facebook make different ‘Bonfire’ from Houseparty and will it be a new trend.
