Facebook Shuts down Its TikTok Clone ‘Lasso’
Facebook’s TikTok-clone Lasso informed users that it will be shutting down starting July 10. Lasso allowed users shoot up to 15-second long videos and overlay popular songs. The app centered around an algorithmic feed of recommended videos, but also allowed users to tap through hashtags or a Browse page of themed collections.
Lasso has sent users a push notification telling them the app will shut down in just over a week. Simple instructions for downloading Lasso videos are provided through an in-app notification.
