Instagram is expanding access to its Reels monetisation feature, Gifts. The feature allows fans to give creators monetary support with a virtual gift. The gifts are purchased in the Instagram app using the virtual currency Stars and can cost anywhere from just 10 stars to several hundred stars. (Via TechCrunch)

3. Delete TikTok or have your data exposed!!

Alicia Kearns, a Conservative MP, urges Brits to delete TikTok or risk their personal data being exposed in ‘hostile’ threats. She claims TikTok is the “ultimate data source” for those with bad intentions, and Britons shouldn’t be so naive and blase about having the app on their phones. (Via Sky News)
