Instagram is Testing Full-Length Reels Replays on Stories

As another effort to push Reels usage, Instagram is currently testing the ability to share full Reel videos in Stories (up to 60 seconds).

Testing Group Post Sharing on Instagram

Instagram is aware that users are switching to more ‘private sharing’, and that’s why they’re currently testing a new feature where people will be able to share a post via a ‘collaborative collection’.

This will be a private chat with friends, and anyone in that chat will be able to add or remove posts to the collection.

TikTok Pay-by-Performance

There’s not much information about it yet, but TikTok is testing a way to compensate creators with pay-by-performance campaigns.
