Meta Ventures into Decentralized Social Media with New Text-based App

Meta is developing a new decentralized social app, which will allow users to share text updates in a separate space for creators and public figures.

Meta ventures into Decentralized social media app

Could this be the game changer for Meta's sinking ship?

Meta is developing a new decentralized social app called P92, which will allow users to share text updates. 

According to a statement from a Meta spokesperson, the app will provide a separate space for creators and public figures to share timely updates about their interests. P92 is still in development, and Meta has not disclosed when the app will be released. 

However, it has been revealed that users will be able to log in to the app through their Instagram credentials. It is worth noting that this could raise concerns about sharing data with another Meta app. 

Meta's move into the decentralized social media space is seen as an attempt to build a Twitter alternative or a Mastodon competitor. The Mastodon network is part of the Fediverse, which is a network of decentralized servers that supports the ActivityPub protocol. 

Meta's new app is also planning to support ActivityPub, making it easier to connect with other instances like Mastodon. It is important to note that Meta has had mixed success with launching new apps and experiences in the past. However, this new decentralized social app could be a game-changer for the social media industry. 

It is a step towards more privacy-focused and user-controlled social networks. This development also highlights the growing interest in decentralization, as other companies like Bluesky, which is backed by Twitter's co-founder Jack Dorsey, have launched their own decentralized apps. 

Although there are competing protocols, the existence of diverse protocols and the applications built on top of them is crucial for innovation and progress in the industry. 

Overall, the development of P92 is exciting news for social media enthusiasts, and we look forward to seeing how Meta's new decentralized social app will compete with existing platforms. 

It is a step towards more user-controlled social networks and could potentially change the landscape of the industry.
