Facebook comes up with ‘Rooms’ – a new iOS app | Here’s all you need to know about it!


Facebook Creation Labs has recently come up with ‘Rooms’ a new app available only on iOS right now, that “lets you create places for the things you’re into, and invite others who are into them too.”

“Rooms lets you create places for the things you’re into, and invite others who are into them too. A room is a feed of photos, videos, and text – not too different from the one you have on Instagram or Facebook – with a topic determined by whoever created the room. Early users have already created rooms for everything from beat boxing videos to parkour to photos of home- cooked meals. There’s even a room called “Kicks From Above” that showcases photographs of cool shoes in cool places,”  Josh Miller, Product Manager, Rooms writes. 

“One of the things our team loves most about the internet is its potential to let us be whoever we want to be. It doesn’t matter where you live, what you look like or how old you are – all of us are the same size and shape online. This can be liberating, but only if we have places that let us break away from the constraints of our everyday selves. We want the rooms you create to be freeing in this way. From unique obsessions and unconventional hobbies, to personal finance and health-related issues – you can celebrate the sides of yourself that you don’t always show to your friends,” he adds.

On how Rooms is expected to change how people interact, he explains, “Our initial focus is on working closely with a small set of community builders. From talking with founders of successful communities, we’ve learned that many of the most successful communities on the internet grew very slowly. If you think your room has the potential to be one of those, we’d love to figure out how we can help.”
