📌 Cocoon Emerges as Social Media Network for Your Family-
This has nothing to do with ads. It has everything to do with family. Facebook puts your mom and best friend in the same social network as your most distant “acquaintance.” As with a cocoon, you invite up to a dozen different people to join in each cocoon.
“People can post updates, emojis, and notifications, and Cocoon will thread these conversations automatically. The app also supports automatic updates, ‘ambient sharing’ in tech parlance, giving your fellow Cocoon members a running stream of insights about the location, movement, and activity, and of you and your fellow members.” – Michael J.
