Facebook just launched a TikTok competitor called Lasso

Facebook launches TikTok-clone app called Lasso so teens will think it’s cool

The app now allows users to cross-post their videos to Stories on Facebook, and the company said it would soon allow users to share their Lasso videos to Instagram Stories as well.

Through the app, you can watch an endless stream of video clips, follow other creators, and discover new content under popular hashtags -or similar to what TikTok offers. Of course, you will also agree that the social media platform is not much of a hit with teenagers these days. "We're excited about the potential here, and we'll be gathering feedback from people and creators", the company told PCMag in an email.

Manchester City outclasses city rival Manchester United to top EPL
Despite their late shows, the Red Devils are seven points off the top four and now sit in eighth place in the Premier League . It's been a stunning start by the champions who look determine to at worst repeat last season's heroics - if not better them.


Lasso accounts are handled either directly through Facebook, or users can create an account through Instagram as well. They can share their videos from Lasso to their Facebook Stories, with the ability to share to Instagram Stories coming soon. Users can create fun short videos that are aimed to compete with TikTok.

Surprisingly, Facebook launched Lasso very quietly, today. The app has become hugely popular with the teens that are now starting to flee from other social media platforms, specifically Facebook. Users will have to first authorize the app to allow access to their photos, and videos. Lasso, however, has a "massive music library" as well. Facebook's product manager Andy Huang took to Twitter to announce the release of the new app. However, the service is now available in the United States. All Lasso profiles are public.

Users can sign in into the app using their Instagram account or create an account using their Facebook. The Lasso app so far has 94 reviews on the Apple store, with mostly 5-star ratings; on the Google store, the reviews are mixed. Lasso has a report button, but it is still unclear if Facebook will draw a line on what is allowed and what is not.
