The people have spoken, but Instagram ignored them until last week, when they finally made a little tiny concession that the algorithm will soon show more new posts, if everyone would just stop whining already.
If you use Snap Maps (Who are you? I have so many questions), those who have agreed to let you stalk them can continue oversharing with you through Map Explore. This update will enable users to share when they’re traveling somewhere new, checking in at a location or adding geofilters to their Stories. And earlier in the month, the Snap Map became available outside of Snapchat.
To counteract misinformation without completely censoring content, YouTube announced plans to show “additional information cues” from reputable third party sources during those delightful conspiracy theory videos we all enjoy so much. (Personally I’m here for shapeshifting reptilians, how about you?) Hopefully they’ve confirmed this plan with Wikipedia by now.
P.S. Here’s an interesting piece on why extreme content is YouTube’s bread and butter.
It’s now easier to livestream from your desktop, without having to use additional software. Look out for a similar update coming to mobile soon.
If you like using picture-in-picture on mobile, then you’ll LOVE using it on desktop!
