Social-networking giant Facebook has rolled out a new app inspired by TikTok that will allow users to make short videos together. The app will allow users to view these events with "Expert commentators" which will include personalities, such as journalists, current or former athletes, or aspiring "fan-analysts". To be absolutely clear, the app wasn't created to livestream the events it features. Alongside commentary, the hosts will ask interactive questions, open polls, and chat sessions.More news: At 4.6% of GDP, FY20 fiscal deficit breaches FRBM Act escape clause
Facebook will first test Venue with NASCAR's Food City presenting the Supermarket Heroes 500 race on May 31.
CatchUp lets users let other users know that they are available to talk and they can also call close friends and family members who are available in the app. Catchup also lets people more than five people at once. Fans receive a notification whenever a Moment is created for the event. When there is a particular moment that might spike interest, the app itself will send prompts like short digital opportunities for the fans around it and they may start participating then. "With Venue, fans can stop scrolling or searching to find the exact moment everyone is reacting to.", says Facebook.More news: Attack on Taiwan still an option: China general
Facebook highlighted the need for an app like Venue by saying, "Despite drawing large concurrent viewership, live broadcasts are still a mostly solo viewing experience".
Mere days after rolling out CatchUp-an Android and iOS application aimed at facilitating phone calls and group calls-two more apps were hatched. Passionate fans are constantly seeking better ways to engage with other fans and experts around their favorite events.More news: Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins named to 2019 'All-Clutch Team'
