Facebook’s Relentless Dominance Continues

by Melissa Santiago

Facebook’s platform dominance continues and their march continues to be relentless on smaller, upstart apps.

New apps and ways to connect to people online continue to emerge, but these new platforms don’t last long. The next app in Facebook’s path: Houseparty, a popular group video chat app with over 20 million users.

Facebook is rumored to launch a new group chat feature, Bonfire, considering that and Facebook’s new mantra to “Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together”, it seems like Houseparty might need to brace itself.

Houseparty’s CEO remains positive that they won’t go up in flames, but Snapchat’s decline in the face of a Facebook clone is enough to worry anyone.
