FACEBOOK

A while ago, Facebook let us know they would be redesigning Messenger. Well, the new version has started to roll out for some users! It is reported to look a lot different, with a more simplified design. We'll see in the coming weeks if that rolls out for the rest of us.

HBD! Facebook Marketplace turns TWO! Thanks to AI, you will be able to buy and sell things much faster!

"Here’s an example: if you wanted to sell your home office chair, Marketplace could use AI to help you sell it even faster by suggesting you price it between $50-75 based on what similar chairs recently sold for. It will also automatically categorize the chair as “furniture” based on the photo and description, so that you don’t have to."

Shopping is made easy, right at your fingertips. You can also report those listenings that you believe really shouldn't be on Facebook.

Lastly, just so you are aware, Facebook warns that third-party apps may have been affected during the breach.

Facebook’s Guy Rosen said, “The access token enables someone to use the account as if they were the account holder themselves. This does mean they could access other third-party apps using Facebook login.” 

Just beware and change your passwords, friends!

SNAPCHAT 

Snapchat is ALREADY in the holiday spirit. I can't say I'm mad. Already ahead of the holiday season, Snapchat has added new ad option. These tools are e-commerce based to help with your holiday shopping.

TWITTER 

In-Stream video ads are now available in all regions!  Twitter said

"Today, we're pleased to announce that publishers can now monetize their entire global video audience on Twitter through In-Stream Video Ads. Previously, In-Stream Video Ads were limited to the markets in which publishers are based, but in many cases, publishers have a global following. We heard feedback that they want to monetize their organic following, outside of their home country."

It's a small update but how exciting!

INSTAGRAM

Instagram's new 'Nametag' feature will make it easier to follow people you meet! This feature is similar to those found on other social media platforms. Using your phone, you can show your username to your friends IRL, who can scan your phone to instantly add you on Instagram!
