Skim (almost) beachside with us!
Instagram in motion. As anticipated, Facebook launched Instagram's video feature that lets people record up to 15 seconds of video. In classy Instagram style, the app has 13 video filters. Could it rival Vine? Time will tell. The update is now available for iOS and Android users.
A better class of comments. Never lose a thread again! Facebook's introduced a feature that lets brand page admins filter comments by level of engagement or recent activity—two things that have, until now, been almost comically frustrating to manage. To use it, make sure you've enabled the "Replies" feature on your page (check your settings).
