Instagram has avoided Facebook's trust problem, beating its parent as app of choice for Generation Z

In the twelve months since the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke in March 2018, Facebook has experienced some major upheavals. According to a survey commissioned by Business Insider the social network has lost favour with users aged 18-25, who prefer Instagram. Some cited privacy concerns as a reason, but for the many the platform has simply become boring. Luckily for Facebook, it owns Instagram.   Exactly a year ago, the news broke that Facebook had enabled the mass, possibly illegal, collec...

Let’s Talk About the Self-Made Billionaire Kylie Jenner

Last week Forbes published what has become its second annual clickbait attempt. It was clearly success and I’m upset with myself for continuing to give them attention, even if it’s negative attention. Trust me though, there’s a good reason I’m writing about this. Of course, I’m talking about how Forbes is labeling Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made billionaire. I think most people look at “self-made billionaire” and laugh for reasons that I hope are obvious. Her sister, Kim Kardashian, a...

Instagram prototypes video co-watching

The next phase of social media is about hanging out together while apart. Rather than performing on a live stream or engaging with a video chat, Instagram may allow you to chill and watch videos together with a friend. Facebook already has Watch Party for group co-viewing and in November we broke the news that Facebook Messenger’s code contains an unreleased “Watch Videos Together” feature. Now Instagram’s code reveals a “co-watch content” feature hidden inside Instagram Direct Messaging. It’...

Mark Zuckerberg says his vision to divide Facebook's products in 2 could put its $56 billion business model at risk

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has published a 3,200-word plan to pivot to privacy. His vision is to split Facebook's product in two, creating both public and private spaces for users. That would limit the ways Facebook could gather the user information on which its $55.8 billion advertising business model relies. Zuckerberg knows this — but has answers for any jittery investors. It's almost a year to the day since Christopher Wylie blew the whistle on Facebook's giant Cambridge Analytica data ...

Pinstagram? Instagram code reveals Public Collections feature

Instagram is threatening to attack Pinterest just as it files to go public the same way the Facebook-owned app did to Snapchat. Code buried in Instagram for Android shows the company has prototyped an option to create public “Collections” to which multiple users can contribute.

Instagram’s fundraiser stickers could lure credit card numbers

Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that commerce is a huge part of the 2019 roadmap for Facebook’s family of apps. But before people can easily buy things from Instagram etc, Facebook needs their credit card info on file.
