Facebook’s teens-only Lifestage app now on Android



Lifestage hit iOS back in August as a teen-oriented social network that aims to bring the concept of Facebook to the 21 or younger crowd. The app functions similarly to Snapchat in that you can take small videos and pictures to add to your profile to show off your likes, dislikes, and anything that happens in your life.

What’s keeping anyone older than 21 from downloading the app? Nothing, aside from the fact that it will only show your profile to you once it’s set up. Not much of a social network then, is it?

While the app is designed to help high schoolers easily get to know and share content with their classmates, the app listing is quick to note that Facebook doesn’t verify profiles.

Everything you post in Lifestage is always public and viewable by everyone, inside and outside your school. There is no way to limit the audience of your videos. We can’t confirm that people who claim to go to a certain school actually go to that school. All videos you upload to your profile are fully public content.

During sign up you’ll be asked the name of your high school and then you’ll be shown profiles that belong to that same school. That is, unless you’re an early adopter and less than 20 people are using the app at your school. Then you’ll need to start bugging people to use the app in order to “unlock” your school’s social network. Sounds suspiciously like how Facebook got its start way back in 2004, huh?
