The Hobby app was developed on Facebook's new Technical Innovation Testing Team.
According to the writers of The Information news portal, the application looks very similar Pinterest. It's an app where users share photos of their creative activities, whether it's cooking, baking, art, handicrafts, fitness, or home products.
Designed for all leisure enthusiasts, the app aims to give users the ability to edit photos and the stages of their creation. It is not currently intended for sharing content on other social networks, but it does allow video recording of projects already completed.
The authors of the app are part of Facebook's e-nature test service development group, which they founded in the summer of 2019. So far, they have created the app Whale, with which users can create an online meme, a social network Bumb and Aux, a DJ app. None of them can boast of excessive success.
The Hobby app was first launched in Colombia, Belgium, Spain and Ukraine, and only a few days are available on the US phone store. Works only on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 11 or higher.
It is not yet known when, if any, the application will be available at the very core of Facebook, but the social giant has admitted that they are still expecting more problems with the introduction of all new applications. They are ready to terminate an individual application immediately if it does not prove interesting or successful.
