Welcome to The Connected Church news!
This news is from Instagram.
Our first big news of this week is from Instagram. Instagram is now 10 years old! As part of their 10th birthday celebrations, they announced multiple features.
Some of it is design-based announcements. Some of it is as deep as ecommerce announcements. One of the interesting things is their ‘Stories Map’ feature, which shows you… privately it shows your a map and the map will show you all the places from which you posted a Story, if you have used a ‘location sticker’, for the last three years. And you can also choose your custom icon for your phone. But the most important announcement is about their e-commerce facility, where they are bringing shopping into IGTV. In IGTV there will be a new icon like a shopping bag, so you can have your IGTV video and people can click on that and buy the products. I will list down all these features. Do check it out.
