(Newswire.net — March 11, 2017) Edgewater, New Jersey — If you’ve been on Facebook Messenger in the past few days, you may have noticed a few changes. Building off of the success of Instagram stories and Facebook Live feeds, Facebook has launched Messenger Day, another SnapChat competitor. Messenger Day is a destructive picture sharing feature that lets people create and add filters to pictures to share with the world for 24 hours. These messages can be shared privately or publicly and are available for up to 24 hours.

Why Messenger Day?

You may say that the Messenger Day app is just another SnapChat clone and you don’t need yet another place to post your information, and you may be right. However, Messenger Day is here to help bring people together not just online, but in person.

Messenger Day’s main focus is to make plans with others and to plan out what exciting things are going on today.

Do you want to go out for coffee? Wine night with the ladies? Getting the squad together at the club? Messenger Day is here to help!

One major complaint about social media these days is that people spend more time on their phones than going out and socializing in person. Messenger Day is finally providing us with a social medium that helps get people together.

Messenger Day comes equipped with “Who’s up for” filters and availability indicators signaling who’s online looking for plans. You can then send out invites to the public, individual friends, your whole squad.

The final feature that really makes this app stand out is its ability to be used on desktop! So far, SnapChat and Instagram stories are mobile only services, so this will be the first of its kind available on desktop.

Is this just another SnapChat Copycat?

No. With this trend of destructive messages becoming available in other apps like Instagram and WhatsApp becoming more and more popular, this is something we can expect to be integrated in more and more social sites, and is becoming a leading format in communication sharing.

In addition, SnapChat is here to showcase the fun things you did with your day as you’re doing them for people to view afterwards, while Messenger Day is here to help you make plans. We have just posted our first Day post and are excited to see what comes of it! Have you tried it yet? Share your results with us!
