Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 2, Jun 22) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
Two announcements from Instagram. One is about a branding visual refresh where Instagram is looking at experimenting with a new typeface, a new way of presenting content. All the details are available on this website brand.instagram.com. If you’re like me, who is interested in branding, getting into the heads of UI/UX designers and seeing what they think about a particular brand, especially a big brand like Instagram, then you will find this fascinating. It’s one of the best brand webpages I’ve seen. Check it out. The second announcement is an important one about a new feature called Amber Alerts that has already been on Facebook but now comes to Instagram, where the announcement says, “we know the chances of finding a missing child increases when more people are on the lookout, especially in the first few hours. With this update if an AMBER Alert is activated by the law enforcement, and you are in the designated search area, the alert will now appear in your Instagram feed, thereby helping the whole process.” So, a very important feature.
