Joining the league of other tech giants and their big fancy annual conferences like Facebook’s “F8”, Google’s “I/O” and Apple’s “WWDC”, photo-messaging app Snapchat hosted its first “Partner Summit” in California.

The motive of the event was to unveil new products – some for users, some for developers – and encourage potential partners to build features or products that work with the Snapchat app, Recode reported on Thursday.

During the event, the platform announced new Facebook app-inspired “Stories” option, in-house built multi-players games and more Augmented Reality (AR) filters which are not just restricted to faces.

Snapchat, in a statement, said: “‘Stories’ feature allows people to share videos, photos shot from Snapchat’s in-app camera on dating app Tinder and social networking app Houseparty as ‘Story'”.

Intended to get right what Facebook and Twitter have so far been getting wrong, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales is launching a social-media website named “WT: Social” which will compete with both the social media platforms.

Instead of going for an ad-funded model, Wales aims to finance it through donations, just like Wikipedia.

Like those platforms, WT:Social will let users share articles. But WT:Social will be funded by donations, rather than advertising.

“The business model of social media companies, of pure advertising, is problematic. It turns out the huge winner is low-quality content,” Wales was quoted as saying by Financial Times, according to an Engadget report.

It started as Wikitribune — a site that published original news stories with the community fact-checking and sub-editing articles. The venture never gained much traction, so Wales is moving it to the new platform with a more social networking focus.

WT:Social will be free to join, but at the moment, you either have to sign up for a waitlist, donate or invite friends. Just a month old, it already has 50,000 users, the Engadget report added. (IANS)
