Facebook wants to make it easier for users to share their current activities with their friends and family, according tomedia. To that end, the company is testing an automatic status feature internally that automatically posts a user’s location, activity, and even phone power and shares it with a user’s contact. In fact, this feature has appeared on some Instagram Threads.
The automatic status feature was first discovered by Jane Wong, and facebook’s Alexandru Voica confirmed the news.
Over the past few years, Facebook has been faced with the problem of declining feed status updates, and it is not known whether this auto-participation feature has been somehow designed to address the problem.
