Codename: P92, Project 92 or Barcelona, as it’s been alternately called.
Tagline: “Instagram for your thoughts.”
All new details have surfaced based on secret calls Meta has been having with select creators, hinting at a potential release in late June. Here’s what I’ve been told by a creator who met with Meta.
The decentralized app is built on the back of Instagram but will be compatible with some other apps like Mastodon:
- There’s a single sign-on with your IG username and password
- You can sync up with your existing followers
- Your handle, bio and even verification will carry over from IG
- Users on other apps will be able search for, follow and interact with your profile and content
Sounds like it’s ActivityPub-compatible, which is how it will be possible to federate with Mastodon instances.
