Welcome to this week’s top social media stories: Facebook announced “Clear History,” a new way for brands to incorporate AR in Messenger and the platform has extended its test of the new downvote button.
Facebook’s yearly developers’ event took place this week and the company announced many upcoming new features. First, Mark Zuckerberg said that a new feature allowing users to clear their complete browsing history on the platform is underway. This is a direct consequence of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, of course.
But F8 was also about Messenger and a new AR integration for brands. It will only be available to a few select partner brands for now, but it looks awesome.
Finally, Instagram also announced the launch of video chat. The feature was first reported a couple of months back, and now it’s official!
