- According to anonymous sources, Facebook is reportedly working on a stand-alone app that would allow users to sign up under pseudonyms.
- The move could be in response to shifting trends to anonymous posting apps like Whisper, Secret, and Yik Yak—as well as anonymous portions of platforms like those on Reddit.
- Facebook was recently in hot water with after blocked drag queen accounts and saw many of its users shift to Ello— a move it quickly apologized and modified its name policy for.
Although the move makes sense because of the growing popularity of anonymity and concerns about privacy— it is surprising that Facebook is attempting yet another stand-alone app. It's other attempts with Poke, Slingshot, and Hyperlapse have only experienced mediocre success.
