Facebook is by and by attempting to court the younger generation or specifically generation Z, this time with a meme-filled application called LOL. Facebook affirmed the presence of the LOL to TechCrunch. The application, which offers an interminable channel of video clips and GIFs, highlights content pulled from the most well-known meme pages on Facebook yet evidently isn’t resonating with the children testing it.
LOL is as of now in private testing. Facebook has put the application before around 100 secondary school students, who are counseling with Facebook on the best way to make LOL appeal to kids.
Facebook hasn’t chosen if LOL will be a component with Facebook’s leader application or on the off chance that it will be discharged as an independent.
The new meme app seems to organize content in collected called “Dailies” with an interface that appears to be like Snapchat’s Discover feature. Over that are classifications that sort content dependent on topic or subject. Categories on LOL incorporate things like “Animals,” “Fails” and “Pranks,” as well as personalized recommendations under the heading “For You.”
Per TechCrunch, individuals acquainted with the app state that it feels “cringey” and frequently curates memes and video that are weeks old and have just been overlooked. The social media community has long experienced difficulty speaking to children, and the greater part of its applications intended to den off services prominent with children crash and burn.
Snapchat clones Poke and Slingshot have been covered or overlooked and Facebook’s ongoing Tik Tok clone Lasso hasn’t increased much, assuming any, footing.
