I am sure you are all familiar with the recent big hit controversy of YouTube and TikTok. There has been a big fight between the YouTubers and the TikTokers and still going on and on. But let me tell you, there is no comparison between YouTube and TikTok because YouTube has been a huge video platform and always be. Most importantly both the apps are vice-versa to each other. For, fighting with the TikTok, Facebook has released its new app Collab. Collab is just like the video-making or content-creating platform which has the same features just like the TikTok.

Facebook has been constantly growing its technology to help its users to stay in touch with their beloved ones. Now, in the trio section of its app, Facebook has released its second app Catchup a calling app to always be in touch with the loved or closed ones across the world.
