After Facebook banned social media users in Australia from publishing and distributing news, LITT’s audience grew by more than 50%.
The founders of this project, Peter Salom and Brent Thompson, announced this on their LITT page, reports The Australian
According to them, more than 5 thousand new users have joined the platform after the restrictive measures imposed by Facebook against users located in Australia. The number of the country’s inhabitants in LITT reached 15 thousand in four days and continues to grow.
According to co-founder Peter Salom, LITT, which integrates the functions of both Facebook and Instagram, is “in unprecedented demand.”
LITT is a hybrid platform that combines the functionality of a social network, a payment terminal and a message board. The application has a messenger and the ability to post comments. The platform is currently only available in Australia. The company recently announced a fundraising campaign to secure its global reach.
On February 18, the management of the American company Facebook turned off the ability to publish and view news on its social network in Australia. This is due to the new media code, which may soon be adopted in the country to protect local media companies. Last week, this initiative was approved by the House of Representatives, and will soon be considered by the Australian Senate. This code may receive parliamentary approval and enter the village in the first half of March.
