A 19-year old sensation Michael Sayman, has created a standalone app on Facebook called Lifestage. The app which is currently available to iOS users, inspires them to make short biographical video clips. Lifestage transforms those clips you recorded into a video profile others can watch.
Facebook’s Lifestage App Transforms Bios into Video Profiles
The app has been exclusively launched for 21-year-olds and under. Though technically anyone can download Lifestage. Anybody 22 or big will only be capable to view their own profile. That’s because it’s made for high-schoolers to learn more about their classmates. A fast swipe allows you block and report people.
Michael Sayman spent the last two years getting familiar with the social network, before coming up with the hint for Lifestage.
To form Lifestage, Sayman said,
“I went back and looked at Facebook from 2004. At the time I was in second grade.”
At that time Facebook opened to your own profile, not the News Feed. Lifestage works in the same way. You’ll see a horde of bio questions you can answer with videos. The more you fill in, the more questions are revealed.

In the feed you will be able to see people from your school who have lately reorganized their profiles. You’ll also see a sunglasses-smile emoji by people who recently updated, though those who’ve let their profiles suffer will display a frown or even the poop emoji.
In Lifestage there is no way to contact people directly. As an alternative, each user acquires a “Reach Me” line of text that appears below their name.
Lifestage may perhaps capture the courtesy of teens that Facebook doubts might sneak out to Snapchat.
When inquired about Snapchat, Sayman revealed,
“I think of it like really great competition. They’ve got a great product and there’s a lot to learn…about how people have started to evolve the video space.”
