Facebook is testing new Accounts Center to bundle data Facebook, Instagram and Messenger


The Accounts Center will link the various applications of Facebook even more inseparably.

Facebook has confirmed that it is running tests with a new feature called Accounts Center. For the time being, it is only doing those tests with a limited number of users. Accounts Center should ensure that users can share shared settings and account information from Facebook, Instagram and Messenger in one central hub. Facebook wants to connect its various applications (even) more with each other.

In concrete terms, it means that it will be possible, for example, to log in to Instagram with login details from Facebook via the Accounts Center. In the same way, you can also recover your account with the login details of another app. Facebook does say that doesn’t mean you have to have the same username on every platform. If you want to have a creative name on Instagram, you can still do that. It will also be possible to, for example, post Stories on Facebook and Instagram at the same time. After the launch, an integration with Facebook Pay will also be added to the Accounts Center.

Stronger integration

Thus Facebook happily continues the integration of its various applications. For years, functions have been transferred from Instagram to Facebook and vice versa, and the chat application Messenger is also almost impossible to separate from the neighboring social media platforms. For example, since this summer it is possible to chat between Messenger and Instagram.

Is the relationship between the different apps from Facebook becoming too close? In any case, opponents are already judging. Policymakers will also be watching the launch of the Accounts Center with suspicion. Both the US Congress and the EU are currently conducting an antitrust investigation into how Facebook uses user data to strengthen its position of power. One of the measures that is sometimes suggested to break Facebook’s monopoly is that Facebook and Instagram should be split up again. But Facebook clearly doesn’t seem to do that on its own initiative.
