Facebook has announced Accounts Center to further link its three apps Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. For example, people can log in to the different networks at once.
On his blog Facebook writes that the function will be tested in the three apps from this week. People can choose whether they want to use Accounts Center.
Accounts Center is a central place where you can, for example, set that you log in to Facebook, Instagram and Messenger at once. In addition, it is possible to indicate that a message or story on Facebook can also be shared directly on Instagram.
“Using the Accounts Center doesn’t mean you have to use the same identity everywhere,” writes Facebook. “You can still be called Aisha Ahmed on Facebook and @bakersdozen on Instagram.”
However, it is possible to synchronize a name and photo on the networks, for example. For example, the name and photo change automatically on Instagram if they have been modified on Facebook.
Facebook wants to merge its services much more. For example, the company has been working for some time to merge chat services. That way, people should be able to send messages to WhatsApp from Instagram, for example.
