Snapchat tests official stories
Snapchat is stepping up its games again by testing a dedicated section of Official Stories from verified accounts. Mashable reported that they are testing a dedicated section of its app to "Official Stories" from verified accounts. They have launched this feature in an effort to create more value for its verified accounts.
Twitter launches 'Happening Now' feature
Twitter has released a new feature called 'Happening Now'. This aims to make its service more accessible to newcomers by highlighting groups of tweets about a topic, beginning with sports, before expanding to other areas like entertainment and news. This might sound pretty similar to Twitter moments but Techcrunch explains 'Twitter Moments are a curated selection of tweets that tell a story, while Happening Now will take users to a dedicated timeline of tweets related to the event at hand'. Happening Now is available on the Twitter apps for iOS and Android.
Twitter Announces Bookmarking Tool
Twitter announced plans to launch a new bookmarking tool that will save tweets for later reading. While Twitter hasn’t revealed how soon the upcoming feature will be rolled out Twitter have confirmed that it will be publicly launched soon.
Facebook CV feature
Facebook is currently trialing a CV feature, according to screenshots posted on social media — this move could put Facebook in direct competition with LinkedIn. The feature lets users list their professional experience and education, as well as their contact details, an image, and other information.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed the test, quoting "At Facebook, we're always building and testing new products and services. We're currently testing a work histories feature to continue to help people find and businesses hire for jobs on Facebook."
