Facebook’s creative team announced on Thursday the newest mobile app – Rooms. This app is now available for iOS in the US, UK and some other English speaking countries. Here is what Facebook said about this new app:
“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.”
This app lets people create places for things they like and they can invite friends who are interested in these things too to join them. This is a great way to encourage discussions on different topics at one place.
Here is more of an explanation coming from Facebook’s Creative Labs team in official Rooms blog post which announced this app:
“Not only are rooms dedicated to whatever you want, room creators can also control almost everything else about them. Rooms is designed to be a flexible, creative tool. You can change the text and emoji on your like button, add a cover photo and dominant colors, create custom “pinned” messages, customize member permissions, and even set whether or not people can link to your content on the web. In the future, we’ll continue to add more customizable features and ways to tweak your room. The Rooms team is committed to building tools that let you create your perfect place. Our job is to empower you.”
Facebook’s Rooms app is a kind of combination between the early web communities, such as forums or chatrooms, and modern smartphones capabilities. The result is an app that enables people to create topic-based meeting places for all who are into these topics.
If you like this newest Facebook app, you can download Rooms for iPhone at the online App Store.
