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...

Instagram bug showed Stories to the wrong people

Today in “Facebook apps are too big to manage”, a glitch caused some users’ Instagram Stories trays to show Stories from people they don’t follow. TechCrunch first received word of the problem from Twitter user InternetRyan who was confused about seeing strangers in his Stories Tray and tagged me in to investigate. The screenshots below show people in his Stories tray who he doesn’t follow, as proven by the active Follow buttons on their profiles. TechCrunch inquired about the issue, and t...

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...

Blake Lively's Best-Kept Skin Secret Is This $16 Sunscreen

Contrary to what you may have read at the nail salon or in the checkout line, celebrities are not just like us. Last time we checked, we didn't have a private chef, driver, or trainer — although we're totally open to all three — nor do we live in a gated community or vacation on yachts. (Again, we wouldn't mind...) But one way celebrities — even the richest, the most famous, the most successful — actually do seem relatable? They love cheap beauty products.Yes, sometimes even Kylie Jenner and Be...

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. LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Snapchat pioneered Stor...

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...

My Internet Boyfriend Channing Tatum Went Platinum Blond, and I Don't Know How to Feel

Channing Tatum just buzzed his hair and dyed it blond, and all I have to say is, "Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?" The 38-year-old actor debuted his new look on March 19 by sharing an angsty-looking selfie on his Instagram Stories and asking fans for their opinions via a yes-or-no poll. Sure, Tatum's bleached buzz cut may be oddly reminiscent of Eminem circa the late '90s, but I have to admit, the Magic Mike star's still got it, thanks to his so-chiseled-it-could-cut-glass jawline, pie...

Facebook's big bet on 'Stories' may go even better than its pivot to mobile (FB)

Instagram Stories revenue is being modeled to grow even faster than Facebook's mobile revenues did in the early 2010s. The company is in the midst of a big shift to Stories-based sharing, and new financial estimates from Nomura are a vote of confidence in its success. Instagram Stories may pull in $7.5 billion in revenue for Facebook in 2021, according to the investment firm. Mark Zuckerberg is gambling that the future of sharing on Facebook lies in ephemeral, auto-deleting photos — and it so...

How IG Stories are Changing Marketing

By Silvia Woolard By observing every step in the last eight years, it’s evident that Instagram is much more than just a member of the popular social media group. It started as a website with socially-related goals and an artistic outlet, but it turned out to be something more. Not just a photo-sharing platform anymore, Instagram has become a powerful marketing tool.
