Social Media Daily News Roundup 28.02.19
Todays social media news rounded up in one place so you don’t have to go anywhere else.
🗨Facebook’s promised Clear History privacy tool to launch later this year following delay
🗨Pinterest takes the lead in the fight against online misinformation
🗨LinkedIn Job Listings Now Inform Users Where They Could Make More Money
Facebook’s long-awaited Clear History tool, a privacy feature the social network says will let you wipe information the social network collects about you from third-party apps and websites, is now scheduled to come out later this year, chief financial officer David Wehner told the crowd at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference.
Brenda Cardenas, an augmented reality effects creator, remembers the filter that ignited the recent Instagram craze.
“The Beauty3000 filter,” she says. “[It] just made everything explode. Like all of a sudden, all of our [filter usage] numbers started going up.”
The battle against misinformation just signed up a powerful, albeit unlikely ally: Pinterest. Earlier this week, the social network evoked the nuclear option, electing to shut down search queries likely to lead to false or misleading information, according to the Wall Street Journal. The search terms in question were those relating to the anti-vaccination movement, a hot-button topic recently after a measles outbreak in the Pacific Northwest.
LinkedIn is rolling out a salary comparison tool to help professionals discover where they could make more money.
“Now, when you’re searching for jobs on LinkedIn in the U.S., UK and Canada, we’ll show you personalized insights about jobs where you could make more money on the job card and within the job listing.”
This enhancement to job listings will not indicate specifically how much more could be made. It will simply notify users of a “pay raise opportunity.”
