The feature was announced (among other exciting updates) at Facebook's annual F8 conference, and Instagra...

And it costs $1,600 (not $16,000 as some sources are reporting). The Samsung Sero is a 43″ vertical TV allowing users to watch […] The post Samsung announces a $1,600 43-inch vertical TV for the smartphone generation appeared first on DIY Photography.

Instagram officially tests hiding Like counts

Would we feel less envious, shameful and competitive if Instagram didn’t tell us how many Likes a post received? That’s the idea behind Instagram now hiding Like counts from both a post’s viewers and its author as part of an experiment in Canada. A post’s creator can still open the Likers window to see the names of everyone who hearted their post, but they’d have to count them manually. Even though Like totals would still impact how the algorithm ranks a post in the feed, if rolled out, the c...

You might hate it, but Facebook Stories now has 500M users

You might think it’s redundant with Instagram Stories, or just don’t want to see high school friends’ boring lives, but ephemeral Snapchat-style Stories now have 500 million daily users across Facebook and Messenger. WhatsApp’s Stories feature Status has 500 million dailies too, and Instagram hit that milestone three months ago.

Facebook prototypes a swipeable hybrid carousel of feed posts & Stories

Feed and Stories unite! Facebook is so eager to preempt the shift to Stories that it might even let us use the same interface of horizontally swipeable cards to sift through News Feed posts. If users won’t scroll down any more, Facebook’s ad business could take a huge hit. But by allowing traditional feed posts and ads to appear amidst Stories in the same carousel you’re more prone to swipe through, it could squeeze more views and dollars out of that content. This would help Facebook graceful...

The 3 Most Important Social Media Milestones to Track

On some level, social media analytics and stats can be viewed partly as vanity metrics. It just feels good when you hit major milestones, like when you get 1,000 followers on Instagram or 10,000 followers on Twitter. But these milestones don’t really mean that much of a different from a practical standpoint, because there is no measurable benefit from having 1,000 followers compared to having 999… other than the psychological, of course. And while there are no explicit, quantitative requirements...

Instagram copied Snapchat's Stories format with posts that disappear in 24 hours. Now, Snapchat is upping the ante by taking Stories everywhere. (SNAP, FB)

Snapchat is extending Stories, the ephemeral posts that disappear within 24 hours, beyond its own app. Starting today, users will be able to create and share Stories directly on third-party partner apps including Tinder, Houseparty and Adventure Aide. Snapchat is also extending Bitmoji to other third-party apps, including Venmo and Fitbit.  This is a bid by the company to extend Stories beyond its own app, and thus make its camera more ubiquitous.

Yep, There's a Limit to How Many Instagram Stories You Can Post in 1 Day

Who doesn't love a good Instagram Story? Rather than posting one picture, you can literally document your entire day. Plus, you can see who's checking you out (and vice-versa, unfortunately). Like Snapchat, Instagram Stories now come complete with filters, GIFs, stickers, backgrounds, fonts, and more, and are a less permanent way of keeping your followers up to date on your daily activities. While posting a few here and there is great, have you ever gotten annoyed or overwhelmed when someo...
