Welcome to this week’s top social media stories: Instagram adds a new “focus” feature for better portrait shots and plans to introduce “Nametags,” Zuck has a secret tool that lets him delete messages he sent and Gmail is getting a redesign.
If it wasn’t for the Gmail redesign, one could conclude this week was all about Facebook and Instagram. Of course, that is not a surprise, it was the week Zuck went to testify in front of the US Congress.
Talking about Zuck, he did a pretty good job showing the world how little Senators understood about the world wide web… But we also found out two interesting things: Facebook has thought about – or is thinking about – a possible ad-free version of its platform that users would have to pay to use. And even more exciting, Facebook executives have a secret tool to remove all traces of messages they sent. And soon we will have it too!
On the Insta side, the app is gearing up to introduce Nametags, its own take on QR/Snapcode. And the company also introduced a cool new “focus” feature that will help you shoot the best portraits!
