Meta is preparing a new move, which may cause a lot of ink to flow. The parent company of Facebook and Instagram wants to take advantage of the exodus of Twitter users to launch a new decentralized social network.
Did Mark Zuckerberg again smell an opportunity that no one saw coming? According to Meta’s explanations at Platformerthe parent company of Facebook and Instagram is currently working on the building own microblogging social network. If we follow the information at our disposal, it should be a rival of Twitter because of its operation based on the publication of small text messages – however, its operation should be closer to Mastodon.
Meta explains, “We are exploring an independent decentralized social network to share text-based updates, before adding, we believe there is an opportunity for a separate space where creators and public figures can share timely updates. on their interests. A general description which is also reminiscent of that of the original Twitter.
A project that will be managed by the CEO of Instagram
For the moment, few details have been disclosed on this new Meta project, except that it is already in preparation. However, we know it won’t be Mark Zuckerberg who will direct it, but rather Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram and one of Meta’s top performers who is the most active on social media. If this future “Twitter made by Meta” is a decentralized social network, this means that the administrators of each server will be able to choose their own rules of use in terms of moderation. Information that is important, since Meta would therefore not be responsible for everything that happens on its social network..

It is not yet known which decentralization protocol they will use, but betting on this type of social network also has another advantage: the social network will be interoperable with other services – thus opening up a possibility requested by the European institutions. To compare, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are completely closed applications. With this future microblogging social network Meta could therefore change its tune and opt for an open application for the first time.
However, it will still be necessary to wait to know to what extent Meta invests resources in this new social network or if it remains simply at the state of experimental project. The rise of Mastodon and Fediverso is an opportunity for many to reinvent themselves, and at first glance, even the global social media big boss sees this with good eyes too.. Like what, the successive failures of Elon Musk and Twitter give ideas to more than one company.
