Although COVID-19 has caused more than 82 million cases and more than 1.75 million deaths, many people are still determined and determined to continue their normal lives. For some people, this includes attending a carnival on Saturday night, as they did in “Before Time.”
Now that Apple has pulled Vybe Together (an app with a slogan that invites users to “attend their party”) from the App Store, it will at least make it more difficult for guests of these secret gatherings. The Verge pointed out that until a tweet by Taylor Lorenz of the New York Times brought some unpopular but desperately needed censorship to the app, the app remained largely under the radar. . A tweet by Lorenz focused on the TikTok account of Vybe Together, which posted some videos that were used for indoor parties at the New Year’s Eve party and also promoted the New Year’s Eve party. According to Business Insider, TikTok has since deleted Vybe Together accounts that violated community guidelines.
Vybe Together’s FAQ at least acknowledges the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We know that Covid is the main health problem of the country, our community, our friends and family. If all of us are isolated, this may actually disappear.” So far so good.
The FAQ continued: “Holding large gatherings is very dangerous.” “That’s why we don’t support this. But Vibi is a compromise. There are only big gatherings and no big gatherings.”
The problem is that in places where apps like New York are advertised, how many people from different families can safely gather indoors without obstruction zero. The behaviors that Vybe Together encourages are inherently dangerous for the participants and the people who live with them.
A spokesperson explained that the application is indeed suitable for small gatherings. “Vibe is together [a minimum viable product] The spokesperson told The Verge that the purpose is to help people organize small gatherings in parks or apartments during COVID. The intention has been eliminated. During the pandemic, we will not tolerate large, unsafe parties. “
They only allow small, unsafe gatherings.
