This week, we’re exploring TikTok shopping, adding music to Instagram images, and having a riff challenge.
Please don’t enable this new Facebook group feature
If you run a Facebook group, you may have seen a recent update allowing you to give all group members the option to become moderators. Our advice: don’t use it! You are better off keeping the group admin roles to members of staff or select group members you trust to do a good moderation job.
Ever felt like your photo post was missing music?
You’ll now see an ‘Add Music’ option when you create a new photo post on Instagram, where you can search for a track to add. Just like Reels and Stories, brands will be limited to choosing licensed tracks from Meta’s Sound Collection for their image audio.
TikTok don’t stop, they want you to shop 🛍️
TikTok launched a test of their e-commerce TikTok shopping feature with select retailers in the US this week, just in time to compete with other big retailers like Amazon this holiday season. Not much else is known as of yet other than the fact that users will be able to shop directly in the app.
