Instagram has some interesting update for the selfie lover and users obsessed with their pictures that are no longer limited to uploading in a square photo; they now support landscape and portrait images as well. Users can now view live feeds of their friends and can make a ‘Live’ video of their own which shows the user in real-time, wherever they are at the moment. The startling fact is now you can go ‘Live’ with your friends at the same time, cryptic? Well, this goes by splitting your screen with the user and the best part is you can end or add or change the user whenever you want by ending the conversation with the current user or by sending an invite to the new one.

In order to create more traffic, LinkedIn has now made necessary for the users to log in first to view any content on the site.
Twitter has now made it easier for us to get in touch with our friends or co-workers or relatives by shifting the “messages” section on the bottom row of the screen and “profile” tab on the left of our mobile screens permanently.
