Facebook is apparently in the process of testing its own app that closely resembles Snapchat- an app that allows users to send a “disposable” photograph to another user for an allotted amount of time before the photograph “self-destructs”.

With the growing trend that is sexting, Facebook is trying to corner the online photo-sharing market; they have already purchased Instagram earlier this year. All Things D claims that this is how the new app will work:

“Facebook’s competing app will do much the same thing. After a user opens the new app, they’re presented with a list of their current message threads between them and their friends.

Hold your finger down on one of the threads, and a timer comes up to ask how long the message should be viewable. From there, you’re able to send the message which, just like on Snapchat, will only be viewable for a fixed period of time.”
