IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Instagram is making itself more advertising-friendly today with the rollout of a suite of business tools aimed at brands. The suite offers insights and analytics related to a use of the image-sharing network. Included in the suite are tools that show reach and impressions, as well as engagement, plus the performance of paid ad campaigns.
Vine announced users can now import video from any source, as long as the file can get to your iOS camera roll. When you launch the new Vine, you probably won’t notice any differences right away. The Home, Explore, Activity and Profile buttons are in the same places, and those areas of the app are largely unchanged. Most of the new stuff — the fun stuff— is under the Camera icon.
Twitter rolled out an experiment to some users that began showing actions — like favorited tweets — on the main Twitter timeline. At the time, it appeared this feature was just a test, since it hadn’t been universally deployed to all users. Now, Twitter has updated some key language on its help page that indicates a permanent change.
