Facebook’s relentless effort to undermine and clone Snapchat took another step, as the platform launched Messenger Day, allowing users to record and share the highlights of their day with their Facebook Messenger friends list.
Meanwhile, Twitter is expanding its analytics to include “Moments,” and Pinterest is changing the way Google Chrome users search the web with new updates to its Chrome plug-in in this week’s social media trends!
Twitter Analytics Gives Users More Insight With Analytics Update
Are you a fan of Twitter’s Moments feature? We’ve got good news for you!
The popular social platform is now giving deeper insight into its Moments feature – a user-generated hub of personal and public generated tweets.
The new analytics update will allow users to see specific details regarding the data on when Moments Stories were seen, liked, and shared. It also offers a completion time record for the average amount of time user stories were viewed from beginning to end.
The move comes after several major changes from the Twitter in hopes of reviving and solidifying its position as a social powerhouse.
Pinterest Takes On Visual Searching With New Chrome Update
Pinterest has always served as a powerful visual platform when it comes to online content, so it comes as no surprise that the platform takes its visual online search to new heights with its latest Chrome update.
Using the power of artificial intelligence, Pinterest has now bundled the Chrome update with the platform’s new visual search tool. This update allows users to search and scan Pinterest by simply shooting images directly from their mobile phones and uploading them online.
The new update allows desktop users on Chrome to find similar items or images by simply uploading photos without ever have to open a separate window.
Will you be giving the new update a try?
