This is the app that aims to replace Snapchat and Facebook

Houseparty, a video chat application focused on teenagers, is making a rage. Already a year since it was launched publicly and Houseparty has grown to the 20 million users who together have participated in, care, more than half a billion video calls .

Twenty million may sound like a drop in the ocean compared to billions of Facebook or the Snapchat of 173 million users. But the video chat application, created by the same team that founded the live streaming Meerkat application, is hitting its biggest rivals in an important way: commitment .

App users, 60 percent of whom are under 24 , spend an average of 51 minutes a day chatting in the app. To put that into perspective, the average Snapchat user uses 30 minutes a day in the application. Facebook says its users spend an average of 50 minutes a day, but those figures are the result of adding Instagram, Facebook and Messenger.

Facebook has taken note. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this year that the social network is working on a Houseparty clone called Bonfire as part of an aggressive bid to nullify competition.

There are some quite striking similarities between Houseparty and Snapchat. Both have a very young and very committed user base. Both applications avoid the typical traps of a large social network, saying that their service is more for "close friends", not for the whole world. Both attribute this success to their ability to connect their users with their "real" friends so that can be your "true friends".

 The application is blatantly young and fun. There is a ghost mode, which allows you to log in without notifying your friends, allowing you to stealthily choose who you want to talk to. You can pass a note to send text messages to someone in your current video chat without notifying the other participants. The app also just added a groups feature so you can designate the specific friends you want to chat with frequently.

Do you dare to try it? Do you think you can compete with Facebook? Write your opinions and comments and tell us about it. We are waiting.
