The Instagram social network is working on a new platform, which is oriented to the publication of text, that is, it is very much in line with those users who do not like to take photos.
This application, which uses the Mastodon protocol, is known internally under the codename P92 and is still under development, led by Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram.
The project is carried out with Platformer and will allow access with Instagram credentials, but they are designing it as a decentralized social network.
According to money controlwhen created as a decentralized network, Mastodon-style, it even uses its own ActivityPub protocol.
It is worth remembering that it is not the first news that one has that Instagram works in a possible rival of Twitter.
Matt Navarra, the social media analyst and consultant, reported late last year that Meta was running its own ‘microblogging’ platform, taking advantage of the chaos Twitter seemed to have fallen into after its acquisition by tycoon Elon. Musk.
The specialist assured at that time that the Meta workers were considering the creation of the new service from different approaches: the launch of the new Instagram ‘Notes’ function, creating a text application using Instagram technology or incorporating a Twitter-like wall on Instagram.
