Facebook finally shuts down Lifestage, a teen-focused Snapchat copycat app
Lifestage was intended to help teenagers find and connect with other students in their school. Instead of direct messaging, high schoolers were supposed o use the app to share selfies and videos that all of their classmates and schoolmates could watch.
“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 things that make up their identity. Teens continue to make up an important part of the global community on Facebook, and we have learned a lot from Lifestage. We will continue to incorporate these learnings into features in the main Facebook app.”
