We've made it through another week, and you know what that means! I am rounding up all things NEW on social media so you don't have to!
First of all, Facebook is ~apparently~ considering an ad-free subscription-based option. Interesting. It seems unlikely and I am not for it, but if it were to happen businesses would feel the consequences. What do you think? Would you PAY to use Facebook?
If you haven't already, now is the time to start implementing live content into your business strategy because Facebook announced new tools for Facebook live! You will now have the ability to cross post your live broadcast across multiple pages giving you the ability to reach more users!
And, you will now be able to REWIND live videos. Facebook said,
“We've heard from viewers that they want be able to re-watch incredible moments or catch-up on ones they missed - like a big play in a sports game or a crucial moment during a show - without losing out on the Live experience.”
And as always, Facebook is launching new tool's for Mother's Day so users can show off their mama. You have it all, card, frames, and stickers!
Shop til ya drop with Instagram's newest in-app payments. This means if the shoppable tag is used you can literally add your payment in Instagram and make purchases right there! How awesome is that!?
We may also be gifted with music stickers for our Instagram stories soon! This essentially will let you share your new favorite tunes to play with your Instagram story.
A mood. ↓
What's next for Instagram? Let me know what you think!
Just a quick note to ruin your day... V2 is never happening.
Another quick note to say HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY, LINKEDIN! LinkedIn has been around longer than Facebook and MySpace so it is worth giving a shoutout!
Snapchat has hands-free mode now. This is the best update of the week, try and change my mind. Start recording a video and slide it over to the lock icon on the left and snap completely hand-free! WOW!
