Yahoo Introduces Livetext Messaging App

Yahoo introduces a new app called Livetext that allows you to share videos (without audio) and text. The company claims that it is “a new way to communicate that blends the immediacy, simplicity and ease of texting with the expressiveness of video, without the audio”, putting your messages and your friend’s reactions in real-time at the center of your conversation. The company’s Senior Director for Product Management, Arjun Sethi, says that the no-sound feature will allow people to use the app in any context, for example, a noisy location or a concert. Presently this app is available in a few countries, including Hong Kong, Ireland, Taiwan, U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, and France on iOS and Android devices.

Facebook Empowers Users With “See First”

Facebook introduces a new way to choose which friends and pages you want to see on your News Feed. This control feature, presently rolled out only to iOS users in the U.S., is called “See First”.

“See first” ensures we never miss any updates from our close friends. The “Discover New Pages” section helps us customize our News Feed based on our interests, from using it as a news reader to a fashion digest.

Kids Prefer Mobile over TVs

A recent study by Miner and Co. reveals that mobile devices are taking over televisions to become the preferred medium for watching videos among kids. This was reported by 57 percent of the 800 parents interviewed for the study. Parents also stated that taking away mobile devices and making children watch only television serves in some cases as a form of punishment. This study explains the reason behind the declining T.V. ratings, especially for kids’ programming.

Facebook Tests a Simpler Way to Fill out Forms

Filling out forms is a process most of us shirk. To make this process easier, Facebook is testing a simpler way to fill out forms with a few taps, called Lead ads. Lead ads would automatically populate users contact information that they have provided on Facebook, like email addresses, full name, phone number, and so on.

Marketers would be able to purchase ads to let people sign up for various things, like newsletters, price estimates, follow-up calls, and business information. Users will be able to fill out forms without leaving Facebook. There will be an option for people to edit their information, if for instance they want to use a different email address, before clicking submit. Once the form is filled out, users can go back to scrolling their news feed.  When it comes to privacy, users can view a marketer’s policy in the ad and Facebook will not send any information to that advertiser without the user’s approval. Advertisers are also restricted from selling any information to third parties. The test is limited to a few businesses around the world.

Facebook Launches App To Enable Private Photo Sharing

Facebook launches a standalone app, Moments, to help you share photos quickly and easily with your friends. With phones supporting cameras, people love to click group pictures of all the fun activities they do at parties or other events. Due to the lengthy sharing process, many times people are unable to share these captured moments with their friends. Facebook’s new app, Moments, groups the photos on your phone based on the date they are captured and uses facial recognition technology to mark which friends are in them. This enables you to privately sync photos with those friends and, in turn, organize the photos that they share with you. Presently available for Android and iOS users in the U.S., Moments will reach more countries soon.

Twitter Eases Discovering Products And Places

To tackle the challenge of searching for a specific product or place, Twitter is testing two new methods. Twitter’s first method is “Product and Place Pages”, organizing relevant tweets about products and places on dedicated pages. These pages will feature product/place images and videos, description, price, options to buy or book, and links to tie back to the relevant websites. The second method is “Product and Page Collections” which allows curators to create and share their own collections of products and places around different themes. Browse rich collections from influencers as well as attain more relevant information about the places and products you’re interested in. Twitter says that this is just the beginning and in the coming months the company will come up with more such ways to enhance its overall user experience.

Facebook’s News Feed Buy Button: A Challenge to Pinterest

Ecommerce is the next big thing that Facebook is laying eyes on. The company is testing a News Feed “Buy Button” with Shopify merchants. This feature will enable you to make a purchase directly through Facebook at the bottom of a post. Making the transaction even easier, you can make the payment instantly if you have your details already filed with Facebook. This feature could boost sale conversion rates for sellers, accelerate shopping, while also keeping users logged-in to Facebook for longer times.

The “Buy Button” is initially available to appear on the Facebook Page Posts or Promoted Post ads that are run by Shopify retailers. These retailers can share these buttons organically or pay for a broader reach. Facebook also enables merchants to track sales and analytics for measuring overall performance.

Pinterest Introduces Buyable Pins

Pinterest introduces buyable pins, which are an extension of rich pins that include more detailed descriptions. The company has partnered with a range of large and small retailers like Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Kate, Spade, Apple, Braintree, Stripe (their primary payment partner) and major credit card companies to add a blue price tag to millions of products on the app. Pinners will be able to find buyable pins through the same search tools that are already a part of the app, like the home feed, search, category feeds, and boards. In a few taps, pinners can purchase items, without leaving the app, through a secure and simple system. Users can pay via Apple Pay, Pay Pal, or credit cards.

Buyable pins are free of cost for pinners and merchants. Advertisers, however, have to pay for the promoted pins to place their products in front of the pinners who’re most interested in purchasing them. Because conversion rates increase by cutting out steps between discovery and purchase, buyable pins are rewarding for businesses that pay to turn them into ads that amplify their reach. Also, instead of bloggers earning money directly for inspiring a sale, now Pinterest will earn money indirectly for transacting that purchase.

Have you checked out buyable pins yet? What do you think about them and this move of Pinterest?

Have you ever received a message from an unknown sender on Facebook Messenger? Well, now Facebook tries to give you clues about the senders you’ve never chatted with before.
