Welcome to the latest edition of this week’s top social media news: Facebook shows its love for mobile and analytics, Instagram wants to help you take better pictures and we explain how you can build your own Messenger bot, without coding and with a low budget. So are you ready for this week’s top 5 trending news on We are Social Media?
Build Your Own Bot
It’s not secret, Facebook Messenger bots are the new BIG thing. Yet it seems like it has been a privilege many of us could not afford: too complicated, too much coding and too expensive.
So, we thought we should help you by showing you the way to building your own bot, without necessary coding knowledge and for a very low cost. How does that sound?
Instagram Low Light
After weeks of spoiling us with new awesome features (Stories, Zoom, etc…) Instagram is still making us happier this week. The company introduced a new feature that helps you take better pictures in dark environments.
Low light is only available in Stories at this point, but I’m sure Instagram will also roll it out to the main upload section very soon. Try it, it is awesome!
Facebook Mobile And App Analytics
Facebook has once again shown its love for mobile and analytics. The latest updates will make your mobile experience much faster and smoother. And the new in-app analytics will help you understand better what your users are looking for. All good Facebook, All good!
Have a great week and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram!
