BBC unveils individualized Instagram documentary

New BBC documentary concerning Instagram is instantly customized to the preferences and mood of the viewer.


The BBC has launched a brand new individualized documentary concerning Instagram, referred to as Instagramification, which automatically adapts the main focus and content of the production based on the viewer’s mood and preferences.
It begins by asking you a couple of questions – together with whether you want to be amused or informed; whether you care regarding celebrity culture – and then the different sections of the program are pieced along and seamlessly streamed to make the whole production.

Best social media marketing panel

It is currently unquestionable that business needs to adapt to the digital era and begin moving their promoting methods onto social media or find yourself losing touch with their customers.


Search engine optimization has to be a must, however the competition is brutal. It takes more than simply building a website, throwing in some keywords and sitting back expecting business to come on the market. Social media is quick, easy and affordable way to get customers. Savvy business owners need to understand and use a variety of social media networks so as to “shake hands with the public” and to remain informed concerning the newest interests and desires of customers.

Facebook removed nearly 3.4 billion fake accounts in 6 months.

Facebook chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg, pictured earlier this month in France, told reporters on Thursday that the tech giant is making nice strides in fighting hate speech and crime online.


Facebook says it removed 3.39 billion fake accounts from October to March. That’s double the amount of fraudulent accounts deleted in the previous six-month period.


In the company’s latest Community Standards enforcement Report, released Thursday, Facebook said nearly all of the fake accounts were caught by AI and more human observation. They also attributed the skyrocketing variety to “automated attacks by bad actors who attempt to create massive volumes of accounts at one time.”

To mark Pride Month 2019, Instagram is adding a brand new rainbow color ring for Stories which include a Pride-related hashtag.

Spotted by reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong, the new option, as noted, will be activated by relevant hashtags, turning your Stories activation border in a multi-colored circle, as opposed to the generic Instagram color tone one. Stories can even appear with a green color ring once shared with close friends only (also visible within the second screenshot above).


The feature is likely one of several Instagram will roll out for Pride Month. Last year, Instagram added a new rainbow background in Stories type mode, rainbow versions of mention, hashtag and location stickers, and a rainbow heart to be used in Instagram Live.


The new Stories ring hasn’t formally been announced yet, therefore it may be a part of a bigger feature release coming this week.
