Mark Zuckerberg will stop at nothing until every individual is on Facebook — or so it seems.
According to multiple reports, he’s looking into ways to reel the teens back into his flagship social media platform. They’ve become distracted — even engulfed — in newer, hotter apps like Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok. He’s simply not having that.
Sources close to Facebook say Zuckerberg has spent months building what’s being called LOL. The specialty feed is expected to focus on meme-like shares, funny videos and other short, GIF-like clips. Categories are to include “Animals,” “Fails,” “Pranks” and a dedicated “For You” feed.
TechCrunch has the scoop on LOL. Apparently 100 high school students have already been using LOL. Of course, they signed non-disclosure agreements and had their parents sign for them.
Speaking to TechCrunch, an inside source calls the new LOL “cringey,” in that it feels like an attempt for Facebook to be cool and hip with the kids. Well, that’s exactly what it’s trying to do, so that makes perfect sense.
We’ll have wait and see if LOL actually rolls out to its Facebook users.
