This has been another “Facebook” week. The platform keeps on heading the news. This week, Facebook took another hit on Snapchat by (finally) integrating MSQRD – which it had acquired last March – into its main mobile app. I was a little surprised as I was expecting this to happen first on Instagram to boost the new Stories feature.

Talking about Instagram Stories, did you know you can add any image or video from your camera roll as long as it has been captured within the last 24 hours? One swipe down, that’s all it takes!

On other news, Instagram is launching a “save to draft” feature which lets you edit and prepare several pics in advance which you can then publish at a more convenient time. To me that is one more step away from being “insta” but it is a great way to build up your profile.

And finally, this week, we witnessed a somehow funny “war” between Facebook and Adblockers. It was like the whole Star Wars saga: First Facebook announced it would stop Adblockers from blocking ads on its platform. Then AdBlockers announced they came up with a workaround, before Facebook finally introduced a new way to cancel that workaround… Oh my!
