Facebook has stopped its application Lifestage which it released last year that was for high school goers, as per reports. However, many people are not aware of the Snapchat like app, which was only for users aged 21 or younger could sign up for it.
This Snapchat like app was especially for teens and connect their classmates who went to their school. However, it did not become popular and had many flaws related to privacy.
According to a source “There was no way to actually enforce the 21-and-under rule and all Lifestage content was always public and viewable by everyone, inside and outside your school. ,” One could use the app to share images and videos so that all of their classmates could watch instead of sending direct private messages.
The app was removed from the App Store on August 4 and had not been updated for several months. Also, the Snapchat like app never reached the top charts since the time it was started. It was created by a 20-year-old Facebook employee Michael Sayman to help students find and connect with other classmates who went to their school.
“We originally launched Lifestage to make it easier for teens in the US to connect with others at their school by creating a video profile with content for all of the things that make up their identity,” a Facebook spokesperson stated.
