On other news, Facebook continues to redesign its core features and, the BIG news this week, Twitter has finally given access to its advertising platform to most countries in the world! That’s an amazing growth potential in advertising revenue for the 140-character platform!

So are you ready for this week’s Top 5 trending news on We are Social Media?

wersm-world-reach Twitter Ads Are Now Available In Every Country – On Wednesday, Twitter announced it is expanding its self-service advertising platform from 33 countries to more than 200 countries and territories. The company went on explaining that its advertising platform is now available in 15 languages.
wersm-instagram-better-than-facebook-organic-reach Instagram Could Be Better For Your Brand Than Facebook – By now we should all know that each social network has its own niche and tone of voice, its own pros and cons. And when it comes to Facebook, the biggest drawback is the undeniable drop of organic reach, which seems to puzzle a lot of content creators. However, Instagram could come to the rescue as new studies suggest.
wersm-facebook-photo-album-slideshow Facebook Revamps The Way Photo Albums Display Facebook is changing the way photo albums appear y’all. So far, images appear as a tiled mosaic, but, as sources confirm, Facebook is now trying out a new way to show your photo albums, which is quite similar to its “Year In Review” feature.
wersm-instagram-direct-new-features-video Remember Instagram Direct? It Just Got Upgraded To Awesome – It was almost 2 years ago: Instagram announced its new in-app messaging service, Instagram Direct. But the truth is that, once the “wow” effect slowly disappeared, nothing really happened around this new “messaging” service. In fact, almost no one has been using it (although Instagram claims 85 million people do so.) 
wersm-new-linkedin-messaging LinkedIn (Finally) Gets A Brand New Messaging System LinkedIn is not known to be particularly user-friendly, and I think most of you will agree, that it at least needs a revamp. And in this day and age, with most other social platforms constantly spitting out improvements, the least one could do, is update the way that users communicate. So, LinkedIn just did that, rolling out a brand new messaging system for its users.
