Facebook just closed WhatsApp deal yesterday and the most popular social networking site has today again hit the headlines with a new rumor. According to the report from New York Times, the social media giant is working on an anonymous social app for chatting.
Further the report added that the mobile app will enable users to interact and share contents with others anonymously.
The stand-alone mobile application would allow users to interact with others without having to use their real names. The app, which is expected to be released in the coming weeks, reveals a different, experimental take on Facebook's long-established approach to identity.
The project is being led by Josh Miller, a product manager at Facebook who joined the company when it acquired Branch, his start-up which focused on products that fostered small, online discussion groups.
However, it remains unclear as to whether the app will only allow messaging or will be connected to the Facebook in anyway. Moreover, there are several things that are vague at the moment and it is not known whether the new app will allow anonymous photo sharing, or how friend interactions and existing friend connections will work.
