Facebook has been oddly quiet about Lasso’s launch, with no official statement on its website. Only Facebook product manager announced the app’s release, and later Bowen Pan, the product manager for Lasso specifically, tweeted about it.
Today, my team launched Lasso (@lassovideos), a new video app that lets you create short, fun videos and share them with friends.
