Social Media Roundup
February Month in Review!
It was a short month, but that doesn’t mean it was short of social media updates and trends! I’m here to round up everything that changed in February, in case you read about something but in the mix of things just forgot to implement it.
Let’s take a look!
Facebook ran a test last year on a ‘Dislike Button’ with a downvote tool. Social Media Today states there was another test of this in early February. I am here to say that nothing has come from this rumor and don’t think it ever will.
During February, Facebook Communities Summit met. In order to continue to build a community, a few updates were announced!
With all of the negative attention that Facebook had, they have announced a clear history tool. Via Digital Trends, “Once we roll out this update, you’ll be able to see information about the apps and websites you’ve interacted with, and you’ll be able to clear this information from your account,” Zuckerberg said in the post. “You’ll even be able to turn off having this information stored with your account.”
Not sure at what point in 2019 this is coming!
This includes the following products:

Just so you know:
Facebook is making it so all campaigns (old and new) use the platform’s automated campaign budget allocation system.
Instagram is here to do it’s part to help. There are four new changes. Via Instagram:
What’s rumored to be on the way to Insta?
Direct. Messages. On. Desktop. And I sure hope so!
Another test that was spotted was a ’tile’ on Instagram live to give your views a little bit more context on your live video.
You can now add a donation sticker to your stories in an effort to help fundraisers! Give a little bit!
Are you putting effort into your IGTV and not getting the results you want? Maybe it just needs a little extra exposure. Give your followers a little sneak peak and then they can tap to watch the whole video!
LinkedIn has been working on their group features for awhile now. Here’s what’s coming soon for LinkedIn group via Social Media Today.
Notifications for New Group posts
Notifications of Group Posts Initiated by Connections
Highlight Relevant Conversations
LinkedIn Live. “The plan is to cover conferences, product announcements, Q&As and other events led by influencers and mentors, office hours from a big tech company, earnings calls, graduation and awards ceremonies and more.”
This could be cool for conferences!
Do you want to know when new Twitter features come out and test them? You can apply to be a part of Twitter’s Beta Test Group! Here is the survey! It’ll be exciting how this affects the future of Twitter and it’s features!
That will wrap up February!
Stay tuned for next month for your full month wrap up!
