Meta’s latest experiment copies BeReal and Snapchat’s core ideas

She had one shot. She tried to tell herself it wasn’t important, that there’d be another one tomorrow. She tried her mindfulness breathing exercises, centred herself, looked for her inner something or other. What did they call it? It didn’t work. She wanted to opt out but that wasn’t an option. No post was just a different sort of post. It would still be read. OK, she tried the look again. She checked the predictor. It would get a 87 if she posted now. Should she..? By the time she’d decided she could do better the window had closed anyway.
