As usual, October has also been a delightful month for all social media fanatics, with a number of recent updates.
So fasten your seatbelts, because this ride of brand-new updates is going to be a thrilling experience for all social media users!
Oh Snap, That’s The Best Gift!
Snapchat has rolled out a number of changes to improve the user experience. The app now allows you to gift Snapchat+, a premium subscription service, to a friend through the app. Additionally, Snapchat has released four new customization options for users. This update enables you to choose your Snap story duration from one hour to one week, the notification sounds for different contacts, the Bitmoji background, and the color borders around your camera.
Twitter: This Isn’t Even My Final Form!
Users will now be able to tweet several forms of media, including gifs, pictures, and videos, in a single tweet, thanks to a recent update from Twitter. Earlier, anyone who wanted to share various media types had to do so in separate tweets or threads. People may now choose and upload a mix of different types of media and publish them all at once when they open the tweet composer.
Can’t Handle This New Youtube Update!
Users and creators of YouTube can now create their own account handles. With the help of this new feature, each channel will have a unique handle for themselves, making it simpler for their audience to find them and their content. Soon, mentioning one another in comments, community posts, video descriptions, and other places will be easier and quicker.
The Creator Portfolio Is The New Creative Portfolio
Instagram has publicly announced its forthcoming “Creator Portfolio” tool, which will enable creators to put together a package that is essentially a media kit to highlight their audience engagement and past brand work. By using this process, creators can strengthen the pitches they make to brands in an attempt to secure more contracts for influencer marketing.
Wear Your Creativity Like A Badge!
New achievement badges have been added to Instagram as a reward for those who put their whole heart into creating quality content for their reel. Soon, users will be able to select this option in their reels, which will award you a badge for your performance. The purpose of this feature, according to Instagram’s CEO Adam Mosseri, is to inspire and encourage people to upload more reels to the platform. With the use of achievement badges, Instagram may more efficiently identify its top creators.
No doubt, the festive month brought many gifts for social media creators and users. All these new updates are surely a game changer for everyone. Let’s see what’s up next month.
