Advertisers To Instagram: More Measurement, Please

Branded content is a priority for Instagram in 2019 – but measurement is seriously lacking.

“That’s one of the things I wish you guys would work on,” said Edlynne Laryea, director for global Neutrogena digital transformation and sustainability, speaking at an Instagram media event Tuesday.

Although Instagram claims that 68% of its users choose to interact with influencers – and 80% proactively follow brand accounts – downstream metrics and ad attribution have a long way to go.

Facebook Messenger users to get 10-minute 'unsend' window

Facebook is launching an “unsend” feature in Messenger more than 10 months after it promised to do so after it was discovered surreptitiously removing messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg from their recipients’ inboxes.

Facebook Messenger now has its own Dark Mode, which you can activate by opening any conversation and sending the half-moon emoji. You'll then be prompted to access the Settings menu where a toggle allows you to turn on Dark Mode.

The Special Curse of Living on Instagram's Favourite Street

It’s easy to see why Paris’s Rue Crémieux is such a hit on Instagram.

Filled with small pastel-painted houses, weathered cobblestones, and blooming window boxes, the car-free street near Bastille has become one of Europe’s most popular spots to strike a pose, with the hashtag #ruecremieux now linking to over 31,000 images.
