Facebook Messenger is stealing Snapchatís streaks feature

Facebook loves to steal Snapchat features to block the popular messaging appís momentum. Ephemeral stories and messaging have arrived in Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp previously, and the company has even lifted Snapchatís popular face filters and camera features. Facebook is now setting its sights on the streak feature of Snapchat, an addictive game that encourages friends to send messages back and forth for consecutive days.

Like Snapchat streaks, Facebook Messenger streaks include an emoji status for anyone youíre currently in a streak with. Facebook appears to be testing this on limited accounts at the moment. Twitter user Case Sandberg discovered the streaks feature, and other Facebook Messenger users have also noticed it in testing. Itís not clear if this is a limited test that wonít reach all Facebook accounts, or the start of the gamification of Facebook Messenger. Some of Facebookís Snapchat clones donít always work out.

Streaks have become a popular part of Snapchat, thanks primarily to its young audience. Snapchat uses the feature to encourage its users to send more snaps, and even warns friends when a Snapstreak is about to expire. If Facebook is preparing to clone this, then donít be surprised to see it show up in Instagram and WhatsApp. If Facebook is desperate enough to steal features from Snapchat, then itís definitely desperate enough to spread this feature everywhere to keep you engaged with its various services.

Facebook is dumb as hell.
Facebook had to steal MySpace whole flow just to become what it has became.
I hate that it's intergrated with everything.
"Sign in with Facebook" how about no ...
Although I do like IG but that isn't their innovation they had to buy em out
I like snapchat too.
But hey that's me.

I've pretty much ignored every Snapchat related feature on any social media platform from jump street. Posting regular a.ss pics, occasional regular a.ss videos, and talking sh*t is enough for me. At least till they come with some new revolutionary sh*t like choppin it up as a full body 3d hologram that can even sit on the couch and watch 4k TV withchu from across the world.
