Instagram is at it again, changing things around! Here’s whats new!
Some might have noticed today, when you post to your story, you can now tag mentions! This is going to be a great help to cross promoting! It will also do wonders for the ease of following a new page.
As they give a one up to SnapChat, they have a new filters & camera options when you go to post to your story. The coolest one by far is, Focus, it blurs out the background to focus in on our shining faces. There is also a Portrait mode for not only photos, but videos as well!
Instagram will also be releasing Name Tags, QR style code, that allows you to follow someone with ease. There is also rumors that voice & video calling might be something later down the road.
When Facebook first bought Instagram, Instagram relied on Facebook to be successful. Today, in the shadow of the “data scandal” it seems like Facebook might be relying on Instagram to stay afloat. Since the first news of the “data scandal” Facebook stock price is down 15%.
I am very interested to see how this all plays out.
