Talking about Instagram, SnapChat updates and more!


On Today's Episode

There's a lot of new updates floating around today. Snapchat has unveiled it's newest version of chat. This makes it easier for people to chat with each other and adds more engagement too. Snapchat is becoming the go-to for many young users and brands. Then there's Instagram; they have their users in an uproar. The announcement of a change in their feed has made many users beg their followers to turn on push notifications. We have to understand that Instagram is a business. They are in it to make money. We may not like the idea of a Facebook newsfeed on Instagram, but, they have to pay the bills. The Facebook model is the most successful, so, that's what they are going to do. Instagram announced a new update to their videos but that still did not quell the anger the users have for the newsfeed. Now users can shoot up to 60 seconds of video. That is quite a jump from 15 seconds. Instagram is trying to jumpstart their videos. They have had little success and photos are the most popular, but they are trying. Anyways, onto the tech news!
