A Meta spokesperson confirmed that the standalone, decentralized social network’ was available to Reuters. He stated that there is an opportunity to create a space for people to post updates about their interests.
Although the app’s name has not been revealed, it will be built on Mastodon, which was a Twitter-like service that launched in 2016.

The app would be Instagram-branded, allowing users to register with the same credentials, people familiar with the matter told MoneyControl.
