Facebook is Testing a Snapchat Clone in Poland Because Nothing is Sacred


Snapchat is a form of social media that is hard to recreate. Facebook has tried, bitterly revealing Instagram stories a year or so after Snapchat denied Facebook’s attempt to acquire them.

Since they want to become the only social network and they don’t know when to stop, Facebook is testing out a snapchat clone for users in Poland.

Acording to TechCrunch, Facebook just launched “Messenger Day” in Poland, which lets people share illustrated filter-enhanced photos and videos that disappear in 24 hours, just like on Snapchat. The publication reached out to Facebook for comment, and they told TechCrunch “We know that people come to Messenger to share everyday moments with friends and family. In Poland we are running a small test of new ways for people to share those updates visually. We have nothing more to announce at this time.”

As of right now, the only main difference between Snapchat and Messenger Day looks to be the use of graphic filters as suggestions for what to share, instead of just to celebrate holidays and events or to show off your location like with Snapchat’s geofilters.

The rest of the feature works exactly like Snapchat, with the ability to draw or add text to images.

Facebook, I thought we were done with this after Instagram’s latest feature.

Y’all need to chill and fix your original features before you start stealing them from others. You just look like bitter copy cats.
