Instagram rolled out a new live media-sharing tool Tuesday that narrows the gap created by social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak.#video #Instagram #SocialIsolation
Friends following each other can now view Instagram posts together through a video chat.
In an attempt to fight misinformation spread through photos and video, Instagram is adding a “False Information” warning to the platform. Using a combination of user reporting and automation, suspected content will be sent to independent fact-checkers for review and flagged as “false” if it turns out to be fake.#photography #Instagram #fake
If you want to get a glimpse of Mark Zuckerberg's "privacy-focused" vision for Facebook, then look no further than Instagram's new social app: Threads. This new standalone, camera-first messaging app is an extension of Instagram's Close Friends feature on Stories, which lets you share pictures, videos and more only with groups of people you've carefully selected.#technology #photography #Instagram #Facebook #privacy
After previewing the feature in July, Facebook-owned photo sharing behemoth Instagram has officially released a shadow-banning feature, called Restrict, to all of its users today.#technology #web #photography #Instagram
Restrict gives Instagram users who are dealing with trolls or bullies a third option that’s not quite as obvious as reporting or blocking someone. It’s being positioned as an anti-bullying tool that designed to “quietly protect your account while still keeping an eye on a bully.”
Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms around, whether you use it to follow loved ones or simply want to be amazed by jaw-dropping snaps.#photography #mobile #instagram
There’s plenty to like about the platform, but one of the biggest disappointments is just how tough it is to upload photos to Instagram on PC. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to accomplish this without relying on questionable third-party apps.
