Instagram is currently testing a way to hide likes on Reels. This option would work the same way as hidden likes for static posts and carousels, where the users can see their own total number of likes, but not other users’ like count.
Meta has launched a new video series to help social media managers and marketers improve their social strategies. All the videos are around 4 minutes long and tackle topics such as:
Ad creative tips
Building brand impact

Elon Musk has confirmed that, on November 29th, Twitter will resume with a revised version of the ‘verification’ blue badge that caused many impersonation issues the past week.

Last week, an anonymous source leaked that Elon Musk gave an ultimatum to employees to work ‘long hours at high intensity’ or leave, which led to a wave of resignations.
These departures included many engineers responsible for fixing bugs and service outages, which raised questions about the stability of the platform. On Friday, Twitter ‘closed offices’ temporarily without reasons given until Monday (today).
