Last Week on Social - July10

Thanks for checking out Last Week on Social, the blog series dedicated to providing a simple way to stay on top of the latest news and announcements from each of the major social media networks.

Every week, we round-up the latest updates from Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, Vine, YouTube, and others that may impact the way you use social media networks for your business.

It’s been relatively quiet, but for the period of July 4 – 10, here’s a breakdown of news from last week on social:

FACEBOOK

Messenger Encryption and Secret Conversations

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. 

SNAPCHAT

Memories

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.

As always, if we’ve missed something, please feel free to bring it to our attention in the comments.
