Facebook Messenger could soon automatically tell your closest friends you’re at the gym, driving, or in Tokyo.

How to Send Live Photos on Facebook Messenger

L ive Photos on iPhone bring your memorable moments to life by capturing a 3-second short video instead of a still image. A Live Photo is a camera feature that captures both movement and sound to keep the moment alive. You can take Live Photos on iPhone 6s and newer ones. The only downside is that non-iPhone users cannot view them. That’s because a Live Photo is sent as a still image when you share it via email or on social media. WhatsApp for iPhone is an exception though as it lets you send L...

What Happens When You Take a Facebook Break

For a healthier and happier life, you might try to quit something: sugar, gossiping, hitting the snooze button. These days, many people have directed their self-improvement energy at trying to quit social media, at least temporarily. I decided to join them.
