Snapchat has launched Snap Map, a brand new location feature.
Snap Map has officially rolled out and will allow you to share your location with Snapchatters where you can explore the real world map and engage friends.
To enjoy the latest Snapchat update, simply pinch the screen to zoom out which will open up the map. If your friends have shared their location, their ‘Actionmoji’ will appear on the map. If you do not which to be seen on the map turn on Ghost Mode to remain invisible.
Snap Map is available with the latest update for iOS and Android.
Instagram archive was reportedly in test month during May 2017 and now the platform has rolled out the feature to all users.
Announced via a blog post, the new archive feature lets users hide or archive any of their posts which can either permanently or indefinitely keep them out of view from other Instagrammers.
To use Instagram archive, visit your own profile and tap the “…” three-dots button in the top right of any post, then select “archive”. To view this collection, Instagram has introduced a new button in the top right which will take your directly to your archive.
This update is available as part of Instagram version 10.21 and above for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
Instagram paid posts have caused some controversy in recent times and now the platform will tell you when a user has been paid to promote via post.
The latest update will show Instagram paid posts with a new caption above the image stating: “paid partnership with…”.
Their new feature is designed to help Instagrammers distinguish between sponsored posts and regular uploads. These Instagram paid posts will also come with performance insights that both the uploader and sponsor can view.
For now, the Instagram paid posts tool is only available through a limited rollout.
