From dedicated video feeds on TikTok to more transparency in content, and even advanced analytics insights for businesses, there’s no shortage of exciting updates to explore. We’ll take a closer look at some of the latest updates from Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Google Analytics 4 (GA4) that are making waves in the digital world. Let’s dive into it!
Instagram is testing a new feature that could bring more transparency to Reels!
By adding a location listing into Reels, IG hopes to address the issues of accounts providing misleading information about their location. The feature is still being tested, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it will be available to everyone soon.
Shopaholics! Get ready for a new and more personalised shopping experience! Meta is testing a feature that allows users to share products within group chats on IG.
You can share product info, prices, and more, all while staying within the chat feature. This could be a game-changer for businesses too, as it allows them to reach new customers in a more targeted and engaging way.
TikTok has recently introduced dedicated video feeds for some of your fave topics!
From sports to fashion, gaming, and food, you can now discover exactly what you’re interested in without the hassle of scrolling through unrelated content. It’s never been easier to explore and share content that you love!
TikTok is rolling out a new ‘Reposts’ tab on profiles, allowing users to discover and share content from other users.
The feature will showcase all of the videos that a user has reposted in a grid format. It’s bound to make it easier to personalise your profile and spark more collabs and engagement on the platform.
