Facebook launches an application that allows you to design your own web pages
Facebook has launched an application called E.gg for US users to provide a “platform for free form creative expression” and allow them to create fanzine-like web pages. The app, which was initially tested earlier this year, is available for free download on Apple’s App Store. Unlike the usual Facebook social media platform, where you can create profiles and pages, write posts and comments, and like and share content, E.gg is specifically designed to provide a nostalgic feel to Internet users wherever you are. they can display images, GIFs, shapes, and text. cured on free-form canvases. The experience is similar to how you create web pages on Tumblr.
The E.gg application is created by a research and development group in Facebook, known as the New Product Experimentation (NPE) team. Also use Giphy, the company that Facebook acquired in May this year, to offer a series of GIFs that can be added to digital magazines.
Facebook E.gg users can create unique and shareable URLs of their creations to allow others to view their collages, even if they don’t have the app installed on their devices. The application also allows users to view creations made by others which it calls “bits”. Users can also add the work of others to their own creations, along with attributions.
Since E.gg is not a completely new thing and you were previously adding users via wishlist, some people have already used its pilot to create fan pages, guides, profiles, recipes, and collages. It was soon discovered that users can steal the intellectual property of artists on the platform. However, Facebook’s NPE team tried to address the initial issues with the app by adding the option to allow users to view the attribution of artwork being used.
One of the key reasons to bring E.gg is to attract young users like Facebook reported a decrease of two million daily active users in the US and Canada alone. An Edison Research report also highlighted a massive drop of young people who actively access the social network.
