Super Zoom to Instagram

Social Media News

Instagram has launched a new superzoom feature providing additional ways to use the option in your Insta stories. Now when you use the Super Zoom option in the Stories camera, there's a new range of variations for the zoom, each of which provides a different effect. The option was initially launched last October, the only zoom tool was the 'dramatic close-up'.

In addition to this, Instagram's also making it easier to add emojis to your comments thread, by providing a new emoji selector right above your comment composer bar. The option is very similar to Facebook's Reactions, giving users a quick, easy way to respond without typing out the words.

Twitter brings Bookmarks

Twitter has announced that it's running a small test of its Bookmarks feature on the web, with a view to rolling it out more broadly in the coming months. Bookmarks provides an alternative to liking a tweet that you may simply be looking to mark as something you want to check out later, instead of actually liking it. Adding Bookmarks to the web version will enable users to view their saved tweets across devices. To bookmark a tweet in the Twitter app, click on the share icon below a tweet, select Add Tweet to Bookmarks. This addition is part of a wider range of tweaks and updates for the desktop version, designed to make it faster and more responsive.
