Today is a busy day for Facebook and its own properties. The company is kicking off its official developers conference, F8, and with it announcing a plethora of new changes. Instagram, for instance, is seeing some important tweaks.
SoundHound is a popular streaming platform for music fans, and now it’s getting a new way to share the songs and artists you like through Instagram.
In your daily life, you will see at least a few people browsing Instagram on their iPhone while on their way to work or in your office. Well, a video going viral on social media shows a chimpanzee willfully browsing Instagram on an iPhone XS. Yep, you read that right!
Another day, another Facebook security-related revelation. This time it has to deal with an owned product, Instagram, and millions of passwords being stored in plain text.
One of the best new features of iOS 12 was the digital wellbeing tool called Screen Time. It’s a great way to track just how much time you’re spending on your iPhone or iPad. The feature tells you how much time you spent in a specific app and helps you set daily limits as well. If you’ve already updated to iOS 12, we highly recommend you start using the feature.
How can Facebook, a company that has relied on handing out personal user information, find a new way forward in 2019?
A lot of people use multiple Instagram accounts. If you’re a social media manager or if you run multiple pages for brands or clients, you might have faced the difficulty of sharing the same post separately on every page that you’re running. Recently, Instagram has taken some design decisions that make it easy to identify the current account, easily switch between multiple accounts and post the same content on multiple accounts.
Instagram is one of the best mediums for sharing videos. But they’re quite limited. You can only share videos of up to 15 seconds, in vertical format, and they disappear in 24 minutes. We previously talked about how you can use third-party apps to split longer videos into 15-second chunks. Now, you don’t need to do that anymore. Instagram will split your larger videos for you.
If you have successfully managed to navigate away from IGTV, the social networks first effort with long-form vertical content, it might be harder starting today.
