3 New Features From Top Social Media Platforms Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn
There are a number of tools being introduced pretty frequently on the World Wide Web. But when these tools are introduced by social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, it’s wise to sit up and take notice.
So on that note, here are three new social media features that were recently introduced on the Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn platforms, respectively:
1) Facebook: New Features for Slideshow Ads
Facebook has implemented new features into their Slideshow Ads. Audio and text functionality has been added to the Slideshow Ad product, along with other features. Advertisers and marketers can also use their video assets and convert them into slideshows that will play at slower Internet speeds. These new features are available on both Facebook and Instagram.
2) Twitter: Availability of a Direct Message Button for Websites
Now, website owners can get a Message or Direct Message Button from Twitter on their website. This button will allow visitors to direct message (DM) the website owners on Twitter directly through their website. The main purpose of this tool is to encourage website visitors to start conversations with the website owners. However, website owners are advised to change their settings to be able to receive messages from both followers and non-followers, as that will get the best use out of this button.
3) LinkedIn: Addition of New Content Search Features to the LinkedIn Mobile App
Now, on the LinkedIn mobile app, users have three new content search options: (1) They can search their LinkedIn feed and find what they’re searching for on the search results page under the Posts tab. (2) Users can refine their search even further in order to delve deeper into their topics of interest. (3) Users can add a searchable hash tag to their LinkedIn posts. Currently, these features are available (on both iOS and Android platforms) only in English, but LinkedIn is working to spread that range to all users.
