What is Social Networks?
They are the ultimate online platform which people use to build social networks or social relationships with other people who share similar personal or real-life connections. Depending on the social media platform, members may be able to contact any other member. And at this date, social networks or social medias have been more important than before because of lock-downs. People can’t meet each other in this situations. So, they are using more social networks which help them to have face time, online meetings, etc.
As a information, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said time on group video chats had increased 1,000% in recent weeks. With Messenger Rooms, Facebook is looking to create a free alternative and steal back some of the conversation from platforms like Zoom and TikTok, which have been awfully buzzy during recent months.
- Talking of Zoom, it was not counted as a social network before but the enterprise video chat app has become essential software for those looking to stay in touch with friends and family. It has also been used for online classes.
- Facebook has been a globally used social media till date. And now it looks to steal back the service’s social video chat growth as it globally launches Messenger Rooms, its new group video chat service, supporting video calls with up to 50 participants with no time limits on call length. As Facebook detailed when it announced the feature, soon users will also be able to join and initiate calls from inside. When a friend using the feature creates a room, Facebook will alert users via a new section in the news feed or push a notification to certain friends.
- For now users can kick off a call from Messenger or the Facebook app and send out invites to users, even ones that don’t have a Facebook account.
