With the confinement of half the inhabitants of the Planet, social networks are finding a new use. They allow humans to stay in touch and interact in a virtual way. Which obviously did not escape Facebook. Besides, Mark Zuckerberg proposed a particularly interesting innovation!
A great role up to date
During the confinement, social networks will have played an important role. In particular, they will have made it possible to stay in touch with friends and family. There is an increase in the use of services like Messenger or WhatsApp for example. This is not surprising. And Facebook has decided to ride the wave by offering a nice innovation.
Indeed, a new sticker called DM Me was added on Facebook. It allows you to invite spectators to a story and offer them to join the user privately. You should know that during the confinement, the number of stories on Facebook and on Instagram is increasing. So it made sense for Facebook engineers to use these services to create new ones.
Currently, this innovation is available on Facebook, but not yet for everyone. We will have to be patient because the deployment is complex. But some will have the chance to discover this feature before others. The current situation is simply ideal for Facebook to launch innovations of this type.
Social networks and in particular Facebook will have done everything to limit the isolation of certain users who are confined alone. This new invitation in the story highlights that the user behind it feels lonely and wants to chat. Obviously, we must ensure that young users are vigilant with this invitation. But let’s face it, the idea is not uninteresting!
