What’s new with Instagram?

Instagram Adds Safety Measures To Improve Scam Awareness

Instagram is stepping up its efforts to protect users from potential scams with new safety measures. Now, when sketchy profiles try to connect, the platform will flash warnings, flagging possible impersonation or dodgy behaviour. Plus, if you get tagged or mentioned by unfamiliar accounts, you’ll get alerts nudging you to review and tweak your privacy settings. These new in-stream safety alerts aim to keep users in the know and give them more control over their interactions, making Instagram a safer space for everyone.

LinkedIn Shares Insights Into Its Latest Feed Algorithm Updates

LinkedIn has revealed significant updates to its content distribution algorithm, signalling a shift in posting strategies on the platform. Emphasising value over timeliness, LinkedIn aims to extend the lifespan of content by showcasing it as “suggested posts” to relevant users, contributing to a more tailored and niche-oriented experience.

So what does this mean for biz owners? It’s time to consider focusing on sharing knowledge and expertise rather than following posting trends. Consider leveraging existing blog posts or research that resonates with your audience.

Apply to work with us and get strategic with the content going out to your LinkedIn connections. Build relationships, grow connections and establish yourself as an authority in your field of expertise without your connections even knowing we’re the marketers in your pocket.

What’s new with TikTok?

TikTok is removing even more music

TikTok is removing even more songs written or co-written by artists signed to Universal Music Group (UMG) due to ongoing disputes over music rights. This move follows TikTok’s recent removal of songs from UMG’s popular artists after the companies failed to renew their licensing agreement. TikTok remains committed to reaching a fair agreement with UMG but encourages users to enjoy other available tracks on the platform. Meanwhile, YouTube has launched a music video remix feature to attract short-form video creators, featuring songs from UMG’s catalogue.

👀 Tests spotted on TikTok this week:

  • Tiktok rolls out live test of ‘Identify Similar Products‘ setting for creators to direct viewers to TikTok shop tab. But some users are not feeling it. There’s already been some user backlash, with some suggesting that the app is becoming too commercial, and too pushy with its in-app sales elements.

Apply to work with us and we’ll prepare a strategic content calendar, along with direction for filming, editing all of your TikTok’s, posting and community management. And we provide a monthly report so you can see exactly how it’s contributing to the bigger picture.
