Evidence is mounting that TikTok mistakenly verified an account pretending to be Kendall Jenner

A TikTok account appearing to belong to Kendall Jenner popped up on the platform Monday to much fanfare, but the account was gone less than 24 hours later. Business Insider has discovered that the account — verified by TikTok as legit — was likely a fake made by someone posing as the 24-year-old Jenner.

Yo Facebook & Instagram, stop showing Stories reruns

If I watch a Story cross-posted from Instagram to Facebook on either of the apps, it should appear as “watched” at the back of the Stories row on the other app. Why waste my time showing me Stories I already saw?

Fix: Live Photo to Boomerang not working in Instagram Stories

The latest version (124.0) of Instagram for iPhone has apparently removed the functionality to change Live Photos into Boomerangs in stories.
