Let’s find out how it started!

Instagram


The most substantial news comes from the world of Instagram that has introduced several novelties, to keep up with Tiktok.

Finally, the subscription fee will soon be introduced to access exclusive content made by their favorite content creators. It will be possible to buy an app subscription that will allow the user to see videos and posts made ad hoc for the paying community and will also allow creators to monetize their work.

LinkedIn


Make way for the Creators! The most “serious” social among all launches new features in Creator Hub, a space with many tools and best practices to improve pages and profiles. These include live videos, to create immediate connections with other professionals without the application process. Also now newsletters are available for everyone (we talked about it in this article).

Telegram


The January update of Telegram brings important news to the app.
Reactions have been introduced in all single chats, but also in groups and channels, where administrators can choose to activate them and decide which emojis can be used in their chats.

Another important news is the time and distance between you and your contacts. In fact, clicking on a user’s real-time shared location shows the time it takes to reach it on foot, by car or by public transport.

Snapchat


The most fun social introduces several updates. The first new feature is poll stickers, which now allow users to create polls focused on emojis, so they can share them in Snap and stories.
After introducing Bitmoji, similar to Apple’s Memoji, Snapchat is now also about to launch Bitmoji Reactions, or reactions to respond to a chat message using the emoji in its own image, to give it a more personal touch.
