PLATFORM NEWS

1. Instagram tests full-screen home feed 

Instagram tests full screen home feed

Instagram is testing an immersive full screen home feed that’s designed to bring video content front and centre. In the test of the full-screen home feed, you can still use the bottom navigation bar to access the discovery tab, Reels, shopping and your own page. Stories would remain at the top of the feed, and not be present within the home feed scrolling. (Via TechCrunch)

2. TikTok launches TikTok Pulse 

TikTok launches TikTok Pulse

TikTok announced the launch of TikTok Pulse, a new contextual advertising solution that ensures brands’ ads are placed next to the top 4% of all videos on TikTok. Creators and publishers with at least 100,000 followers on TikTok will be eligible for the revenue share program during the initial stage of the TikTok Pulse program. There will be a 50/50 split of the ad revenue with creators. (Via TechCrunch)

Twitter has launched a public test of its new ‘Twitter Circle’ option, which will enable users to share tweets with a specific, custom group of connections in the app. Users will be able to add up to 150 people to their Circle, with any tweets in the group then only visible to the people in that listing.
