Facebook Drops Exclusive App For Couples

The app is an interesting one for the company since it doesn’t require users to have a Facebook account.

In a timely turn of events, Facebook dropped an app designed exclusively for couples. According to the app’s description in the Apple store, the contents of it are private and only shared between the couple.

The app is called Tuned, and is designed to look like a digital scrapbook of sorts, emphasizing the fact that the contents of it can only be viewed by the couple. The app allows for partners to develop a small social network of sorts, where they can sync up their Spotify accounts, set moods, send photos, postcards, voice notes, stickers, reactions and more.

The app is an interesting one for Facebook since it doesn’t require users to have a Facebook account, yet it still treats all the information you provide according to Facebook’s data management. The information that’s submitted can and will likely be used for targeted ads.

Tuned is an individual app, developed by a small Facebook group called New Product Experimentation team (NPE). The team specializes in building experimental apps and projects that deviate a little from Facebook’s M.O.. Their previous project called Hobbi is an app which allows users to document and keep track of their projects and hobbies over time.
