Facebook has launched a new social media app ‘lifestage’ aimed at school teenagers.
Users can upload pictures and videos through Lifestage which is currently available on iOS only in the US. Uploaded photos and videos are transformed to video profile by lifestage. It only works for 21-year-olds and under. It encourages its users to create short biographical video clips to be shared within their school network. Videos are not shown to Facebook friends but to other users of the app who attend local high schools, who see them in a feed.
All posts are public and there are no options to adjust privacy settings. There is no age verification, anybody can claim to be from a local school, and there are no settings to control who sees your videos.
Lifestage was developed by Michael Sayman, a 19-year-old who made various designing gaming apps before Mark Zuckerberg hired him.
It is a video-centric app that appeals teens. Get your Lifestage right now CLICK to download on your IOS device. But don’t forgot to care about the note Facebook has posted just under the app description:
Everything you post in Lifestage is always public and viewable by everyone, inside and outside your school. There is no way to limit the audience of your videos. We can’t confirm that people who claim to go to a certain school actually go to that school. All videos you upload to your profile are fully public content.
