Virtual reality goggles? Yep. The possibilities on Facebook Messenger/chat/meetings are endless.
Software has some inherent challenges esp with the shortfall of hardware proliferation and consistency. Bandwidth issues and requirements are tough enough to manage for reasonable VR interaction and usage.
Twitter has played off the move from “favorite” to “like” as a universal symbol. The hearts have also done well on Periscope, Twitter’s live broadcast social media app. Perhaps it’s their cross platform comfort by using the heart as their like too.
Although I am NOT much of a fan of the new change, it might make it easier for people to say the one-syllable “LIKE” vs that three-syllable “FAVORITE” – I guess.
In my life, I do appreciate Twitter saving me from saying two less syllables.
Either way, you should “LIKE” things on Twitter now.
Instagram just announced that it will go from 640×640 picture posts now to 1080 x 1080 picture posts.
This is most likely attributed to mobile hardware improvements since 2010 and camera phones now take excellent pictures. So to meet the new uploads and higher quality standards, Instagram changed their programming to allow users to include more.
So what does all that gobbledygook actually mean for the Instagrammer?
Before you could only post this type of image with marginal clarity (640 resolution).
Now, you can post this with better quality and better clarity (1080 resolution).
Bigger picture at a standard 1080 resolution, better clarity, and a much better story platform for your audience.
