Is COVID-19 A Blessing In Disguise For The Facebook Portal?
There has been an increase in the usage of the Facebook-related apps after the coronavirus pandemic lockdown was declared. Many grandparents and senior citizens have started using the platform in order to stay in touch with their loved ones.
Portal adopters include people older than 65, a group at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus. The device has gained traction in part because it’s relatively easy to use, and works with WhatsApp and Messenger, another Facebook chat app.
With its ease of use, no matter what the user’s age is, they will be able to adapt to it quickly. There is a smart camera which moves around depending on where the user is. There are other models available as well. With the surge in demand for video calling devices, this device is enjoying new popularity. In fact, it has gone out of stock! Though this device was released about two years ago, multiple allegations on privacy breaches have put a damper on its reputation. Facebook itself has a bad reputation when it comes to the privacy of its users.
Facebook has also faced a tough market when it comes to its competitors Google and Amazon manufacturing multiple devices. In the past, Facebook has always been recognized as a software company and not as a hardware company that manufacturers smart home devices. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the prices of the devices have been slashed. Facebook is using this opportunity to promote the device on its platform. With the device performing the way it should, the demand for it keeps increasing by the day.
