Facebook is currently testing a new feature called, ‘Secret Conversations’. This will enable users to have Messenger conversations about sensitive subjects with end-to-end encryption, and other privacy features such as control over the length of time a message remains visible within conversations, to safeguard information being shared on the platform. Sounds very covert, indeed.
Rolling out over the next few months, Memories represent a way for users to save snaps and stories on the platform. This seems a bit counterintuitive for Snapchat, but we’ll see how this is received as it rolls out.
Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, Vine, and YouTube had quiet news weeks with no announcements worth reporting.
