You Can Now Send Instagram DMs From a Browser, But the Desktop Experience Still Sucks

At 10 a.m. ET Friday, Instagram started rolling out the ability to see and respond to direct messages in a browser instead of having to open the app. And while this might be nice change for influencers and Instaholics, I can’t help but think this does nothing to address the otherwise atrocious experience you get when…Read more...

Instagram founder launches gift card site for quarantined restaurants

Coronavirus quarantines are hurting local businesses, but Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger wants to help them keep revenue rolling in.

How TikTok decides who to make famous

Read part one of this post, “Leveraging TikTok for growth,” on TechCrunch. Leveraging TikTok for growth Part 2: The TikTok System So what do we mean when we say “then, the post is reviewed by an AI?” TikTok is the most extensive content moderation system that has ever existed. The 411 on content moderation To make that claim, we need to understand the status quo in moderation today.

Brands That Hire Influencers For Inauthentic Insta-Tourism Do Disservice to Customers

Today's hyper fluidity of travel, connectivity and social media sharing make living the millennial dream of international and exotic travel experiences an easy reality. Unfortunately, a deeply troubling facet has emerged from that world that I can no longer be silent about - called Insta-tourism. And yes, I can legitimately complain about this, because I myself am a millennial. Let me explain. Recently, a friend and I embarked on a trip to Southeast Asia, and in planning the trip, we did what...

Best and Most Popular Boat Party in Ibiza

Float Your Boat has long held the crown for Ibiza’s best and most popular boat parties, and that dominance is set to continue well into summer 2020 with the announcement of a spruced up formula guaranteed to shake things up out at sea. Wave-based hedonism is still the order of the day, of course, but each sailing now has the addition of a swim stop and a serving of fresh, juicy fruit. That means there’s time to take a moment of still before the madness unfolds, or to take a cooling dip as the te...

I'm Stanning Billie Eilish Now More Than Ever After Hearing Her Response To The Paparazzi Who Booed Her

Earlier this week, ~Gen Z legend~ Billie Eilish appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and she was such a delight! But sadly, the fun didn't last the whole night because after Billie left the studio, she was swarmed by a huge group of paparazzi who booed her after she refused to take photos and sign autographs. On her Insta story, she explained that when she got out of Kimmel's studio there were two groups of people waiting for her — one group was mostly fans, and the other was mostly paparazz...

App takes selfies from space

Here comes a solution for people with so many friends, their arms simply aren’t long enough to fit them all in the selfie frame. Spelfie has just released an app allowing users to take photos from space. To take a Spelfie (a clever combination of “space” and “selfie”) you simply use the app to select the event you’re attending (a music festival, for example), and then stand at the coordinates the app provides. Then, at the exact same moment that you take your selfie, a satellite camera will ...

Why Instagram Is Better Than Other Social Media Platforms

With so many different yet similar social media platforms on the rise, it is often difficult to determine which is the best platform presently. But through all the rising and falling trends, we feel Instagram has held its own in terms of reaching out to its users and customers alike. For young artists and musicians, Instagram is the best place to garner followers and kickstart their career.

In Kuwait, domestic laborers are bought and sold on Instagram

Slavery is one of many industries made more efficient by Silicon Valley, and specifically, Facebook-owned Instagram. A new BBC investigation reveals the widespread online sale of human beings in the mideast for domestic labor. The buyers and sellers use services from Instagram, Facebook, Apple, and Google to facilitate slavery transactions. Housekeepers and nannies are purchased and sold as slaves through Instagram, promoted using hashtags, and promoted on other apps in Google Play and Apple's...

Dashing Through the Snow With Lush’s Rudolph Jelly Face Mask On

Did you kind of sort have a mental image of me dashing around in a sleigh with Lush Rudolph Jelly Face Mask on thanks to that title? I did. Totally had the image flash through mind and really, it isn’t hard to see me doing something as crazy as dashing around with a face mask or a sheet mask on in six feet of snow. Stranger things have happened right? I finally decided to take the plunge and haul some Lush Rudolph Jelly Face Mask against my better judgement. You see, I hate Lush Shower Jellies ...

Why You Don’t Need an Instagram Marketing Guide – Seriously!

When a colleague asked on Twitter who has written a brilliant Instagram marketing guide my willingness to help made me start my favorite search engine – Ecosia – and look for one. Of course I found like a dozen more or less comprehensive Instagram marketing guides – most of them written by tool makers who make money by helping you market on Instagram. Yet before I clicked and compared those my brain finally started working. I remembered the odd statistics and reports about Instagram....

Breaking Bad pop-up in Los Angeles

Ok, yeah, it’s cool there’s a Breaking Bad movie coming out next week and all. It’s no trip to Albuquerque, but it’ll be nice to get your Jesse Pinkman fix for the first time in six years. And though El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will immerse us back into the sinister world we fell in love with in the late-2000s, it won’t put us smack in the middle of the show the way, say, a themed pop-up bar might. Oh, wait… here come the guys from Saved by the Max, who just in time for the Breaking Bad ...

These Activists Are Using Social Media To Empower Black Women — & You Should Be Following

Social media tends to get a bad rap — and for good reason. We can all agree that plenty of things in life are more enriching than the hours we spend hunched over scrollable feeds on our phones, saving astrology memes, skimming mega-captions, and ogling strangers' European vacations. That said, with a bit of curation, it is possible for our social media feeds to do more than just spark FOMO — they can be a source of inspiration and maybe even a force for good.In a world where it often feels like...

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’...
