1. Instagram introduces Live video and disappearing messages

Instagram is rolling out disappearing Live video and messages. The first feature brings one of Facebook’s biggest offerings to the photo sharing app, but without the emoji reactions (and no ability to replay, either). The second feature is a literal page out of Snapchat’s book, which was a pioneer of disappearing messages when the app launched in 2011. However, when you go to share a photo or video to Instagram Stories, you’ll also be able to select friends or groups of friends to send it to.

2. Twitter Boss Jack Dorsey was suspended from Twitter

This was the only time you had more followers than Twitter’s own boss. The co-founder of the social network wrote on Tuesday night: “Just setting up my twttr…again (account suspension was an internal mistake).”

3. Snapchat’s image recognition-triggered ads are a step closer, functionality now live

Snapchat is getting more and more competition from other social giants like Facebook and Instagram, but it always seems to have a trick up its sleeve to keep ahead of the game. The next potential big thing? The ability to recognise real world objects and use them as a trigger for in-app content.

4. Telegram launches Telegraph, an anonymous blogging platform (no sign-up required)

The popular messaging app has now an additional blogging platform. What’s interesting about the service is that you don’t need an account — simply visit the website and begin typing away. When you’re done, hit publish and it’s immediately on the web. It’ll be interesting to see how this affects accountability – particularly given the recent despair about the volume of fake news on the web and social media platforms.
