Facebook is at it again. We know Mark Zuckerberg believes the future of Facebook will be made of several standalone apps, each serving a specific purpose, and helping the company keep on connecting more people across the globe.

Today, reports suggest that Facebook is now working on a new photo and (live) video app that will directly compete with the Snapchat and Periscope.

The news broke from the Wall Street Journal claiming that the app is currently being developed by the “Friend Sharing” team at Facebook London.

Facebook has not commented yet, but an inside source has confirmed that the project exists, that is is “still in its early stages and may never come to fruition.”

This new “photo and video” standalone app will no doubt come to compete with Snapchat and Periscope, probably building on the successes of Instagram and more recently Facebook Live. The new app may be entirely built around a camera environment, with live video streaming entirely integrated into the experience. Reports also mention that the recent acquisition of MSQRD could play an important role in building the app.

Of course some of you may still remember the failed attempt Facebook had a few years ago with “Camera.” Yes, this was before the company acquired Instagram and that probably was the number one reason why Facebook had dropped it back then.


Now, whatever happens, the fact that Facebook is thinking a product like this, shows that the company is concerned about how much its user-base is becoming passive on the platform, and is looking into new ways to motivate Facebook users to create and share content.
