The social media dance continues and, yet again, it's Facebook copying steps from Snapchat. "We face significant competition in nearly every aspect of our business both domestically and internationally", Snap Inc explained.
Snapchat's "Streaks" feature has become popular as it appeals to a young audience.
A spokesperson for Facebook Messenger confirmed the test saying it was a way to "to see at a glance fun facts about the people you message with". Facebook appears to be testing this on limited accounts at the moment.

If Facebook is preparing to clone this, then don't be surprised to see it show up in Instagram and WhatsApp, according to The Verge. The streak feature is a psychological technique called loss aversion, which involves users to stay on an app even when it is no longer useful, or they no longer enjoy using it anymore.
