Facebook tests 30-day keyword snoozing to fight spoilers, triggers

Don’t want to know the ending to a World Cup game or Avengers movie until you’ve watched it, or just need to quiet an exhausting political topic like “Trump”? Facebook is now testing the option to “snooze” specific keywords so you won’t see them for 30 days in News Feed or Groups. The feature is rolling out to a small percentage of users today. It could make people both more comfortable browsing the social network when they’re trying to avoid something, and not feel guilty posting about sensi...

We Are Social’s Tuesday Tweakup #32

Mixed news for Snapchat Snapchat’s perception as an important app for young people has come under scrutiny over the last week. In comScore’s 2017 US Mobile App Report, Snapchat is notably absent on the most essential apps for 18- to 34-year-olds. Facebook (29%) and Instagram (11%) both feature in the top 10, with Amazon at number one (35%). But it’s not all bad news. While 18-34 year olds may be able to live without Snapchat, that doesn’t mean it’s not actually being used. In a separate study ...

#Hashtag10: the best hashtag fails in a decade #Hashtag10: the best hashtag fails in a decade How did we manage before Twitter? is a question I often hear, asked by a range of different people from casual personal users to immersed influence marketers. I’ve found it a great tool over the past decade to help me connect with others, share thoughts and opinions, bookmark ideas and join up the dots in conversations. It’s that latter aspect that is especially useful thanks to the hashtag, a device created by Chris Messina that...

Happy Birthday Hashtag! How Online Talk Changed Forever

The hashtag turns 10 today, and inventor Chris Messina -- aka user no 1186 on Twitter -- has explained how a small group of early Twitter users wanted to make conversations easier to follow. "Lots of folks suggested that Twitter should just add web forums, with all the typical management overhead, but I felt that forums weren't forward looking enough," Messina, now head of community and growth at Neonmob, an art trading website, told the Australian this week. "Web forums would be a pain [...] i...

Here's How You Should Actually Use Hashtags

Design: Louisa Cannell. It's hard to believe now, but until 2007, the humble pound sign was just a pound sign. Yes, it was also called a hash back then, but who referred to it like that, anyways?The pound sign's transition from insignificant icon to being the cultural identifier for Gen Y (and probably Gen Z, too) is believed to have started with a single tweet. Chris Messina, a former Google developer, probably had no idea that his crazy concept — using pound signs to denote groups — would ...

Is Facebook Bringing Back Rooms App as Part of Messenger?

Is Facebook’s shuttered stand-alone Rooms application coming back to life as part of Messenger? The social network introduced Rooms in October 2014, saying at the time that it was intended to bring users together to discuss topics of their choice with text, photos and videos, and without having to use their real names. However, those Rooms were clearly not crowded enough, as the app was shelved in December 2015, along with fellow Facebook Creative Labs efforts Slingshot and Riff. “Developer ev...

How a Wildfire Helped Spread the Hashtag

An anonymous reader writes: Chris Messina is credited with originating the use of hashtags at Twitter. What's not widely known is the role of San Diego's wildfires in making hashtags reach a tipping point. Messina, who was Twitter user 1,186, says in the fall of 2007, Web developer Nate Ritter started posting updates on the firestorms using the hashtag #sandiegofire. Other users, including the news media, glommed onto the handle and citizen journalism took a big step forward. From there, other w...
