The expansion comes as the company recently ditched the “swipe-up” link in Instagram Stories in favor of the new Link Stickers. Both the previous “swipe-up” link and new Link Sticker feature have been historically limited to businesses and high-profile creators.

Some creators now have a Tips section in their account options, through which they can apply to receive tips from their audience. To be eligible for Tips, users need to have at least 100k followers and their account needs to be in good standing, in line with TikTok’s platform rules and regulations.

5. WATCH: At 3AM, ghosts come out. So do free meals at Burger King

Burger King launched a new campaign inviting people to face the scariest hour of the day for a free meal—or what the brand is referring to as “3 AM Apparitions.” According to paranormal experts, 3 AM is the time when most paranormal activity happens.

6. War photographers go inside Call of Duty: Vanguard to capture images

Activision sent war photographers into Call of Duty: Vanguard, and their images illustrate the realism of the video game world’s graphics. The war journalists will auction off limited edition photo prints of their shots with the proceeds going to the Call of Duty Endowment – a non-profit organization that helps veterans find high-quality careers. For every photo sold, the endowment will fund one veteran job.
