Posted by dotmaster on May 28, 2016 in News |

The iOS version of Twitter features a new search criteria. It is possible to search for Periscope broadcasts related to keywords or hashtags (hashtags).

For 3 years, the iOS version of Twitter offers several search criteria. These let you restrict (filter) search results to tweets containing photos, videos, news, users or people and now Periscope broadcasts.
This is a further step in the integration of Periscope at Twitter. Users will be able to more easily find broadcasts associated with thematic or less specific keywords. To search for Periscope broadcasts, enter a keyword in the search field and press the icon “Refine Results”.

Before the arrival of the search criterion, it was possible to do this type of search by entering keywords and including the hashtag #Periscope.

However, there was often the results that are not necessarily included a Periscope broadcast, but only the hashtag. Now, the new criterion always includes one or more broadcasts that are related to keywords searched.

The notifications arrive on the web version of Instagram

Posted by dotmaster on May 13, 2016 in Uncategorized |

You know, Instagram is primarily a mobile application. The Web, obviously, is not a priority for this social network photo and video. But surprise, that Instagram has integrated its online version notifications on the areas of each user.

You can find the notifications in the top right of the Web application window. As the mobile versions, you will have access to notifications of people who like pictures and videos, that comment on or who started following you.

On your account, select the action notification allows you to reach the photo on which the “Like” or comment was awarded. You can also click the profile photo or name of the user who interacted with your photo or video. You will reach and its publishing space.

Interesting this novelty, but it does not seem to be pellet telling you that you have new notifications.

Vine: Change sorting of video and caption your last Vine

Posted by dotmaster on April 16, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Some interesting new side in Vine. You can change the ways are sorted videos, 3D Touch arrives on the iPhone version and Android version, allows you to edit the legend of a Vine after publication.

Three sorting criteria

The new sorting features allow you to reorganize how Vine presents the user generated content. To change the sort videos, visit a user’s profile and press the button that indicates the number of publications that person released.

You will see three sort criteria. They allow you to display the latest Vine, the oldest or the most popular user. In my view, these new sorting criteria encourage the discovery of content.

Change the caption of a Vine after publication

Vine offers a really useful feature that is not present on Twitter. You can change the caption of a Vine after publication.

Interestingly, except that there are still some limitations. For now, it is only possible to change the caption for the Android version of Vine. In principle, this possibility should arrive shortly on the iPhone version.

You must be fast by cons. For some reason, the publishing legend tool is accessible shortly after publication. After a few minutes, you no longer have access.

There is another gap. You published a tweet with the publication of a Vine. Unfortunately, that tweet will not change even if you have made a correction to the description of your video on Vine. Finally, the 3D Touch offers the possibility to start a search or create a new Vine from the application icon.

Twitter announced that within a few weeks all users will have access to a button that will allow them to quickly search and publish a GIF in a Tweet or a private message.

Although Twitter officially supports animated GIFs for close to two years, it is still difficult to get used to it. Since the Web version, the user must drag and drop the file on the window of the tweet. For iOS and Android versions, the GIF should be selected from the gallery of the device. It would really take a while for people to include a GIF in their tweet.

 

Fortunately, Twitter announce that their system is going to have a new update. Twitter added a new feature that could help people add a GIF in their tweet more easily. Lucky for us the new way to publish an animated GIF is much simpler. I will teach you how. First, just click the “Compose new tweet” button. After that, you will see a new GIF button – it is between the picture/video and poll button. Then, tap the GIF button to search for a GIF or browse one of the existing quick categories. To insert the GIF that you want to include in your tweet, just tap it and then tap “Tweet”. It is very convenient and easy to do, right?

Twitter asked the help of GIPHY and Rifsy (GIF Keyboard creator) to make the animated GIFs available to Twitter users worldwide. This integration is similar to the Messenger. The Facebook messaging service also uses the same third-party Twitter services. After the partnership, Twitter has now added a library of thousands of GIFs.

 

However, you can only add a GIF by tweet. It is not possible for users to add an image or a poll to their tweet once they have added a GIF. The only things that you can add are: text and your present location. Also, you have to remember that you cannot tweet multiple GIFs. But if really want to add multiple GIFs, you need to upload the GIFs from the storage of your device through the “Photo” button. Last year, over 100 million animated GIFs were shared on Twitter. The arrival of this new button will certainly change the lives of millions of Twitter users. Twitter users could now make their comments and conversations more alive with the newly created GIFs for news, entertainment, sports and many more. Users can now quickly and efficiently express how they are feeling with the animated GIFs.

 

This recent update would surely make people excited to share their favorite GIFs to their followers. The GIF button is available to both iOS and Android mobile apps. Also, you can notice the GIF button on Twitter’s website twitter.com. In my opinion, this new development is really good and it is telling me that Twitter is getting similar with Facebook. I hope that Twitter will do more of this to serve the people better.

Instagram Now Displays the Date of Publication of Your Photos

Posted by dotmaster on April 4, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Today, millions of people  use Instagram to take pictures and videos, and then share them with their followers. Most of the time, users apply filters to their images. Amaro, Brannan, Hudson, Earlybird, Kelvin, Mayfair, Nashville, Rise, and Sierra are just some of the photographic filters that users can use. Instagram allow their users to upload videos that are not long – they are usually just a few minutes long. The people who use Instagram also have an option to connect their account to other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. So if there is a certain photo on your Instagram account that you want your Facebook friends to see too, just click a few buttons and then you are good to go.

 

Also, just like Facebook, Instagram users can also add a photo caption where they can use a hashtag. A hashtag usually starts with # symbol. If you want to see a page that displays all the photos and videos that people have uploaded with the same hashtag as yours, just tap the hashtag that you have tagged your post with. However, you must remember that you are only allowed to use up to 30 tags on a post. Also, numbers are allowed in a hashtag but there should be no spaces and special characters such as $ or *, and it is not possible for you to tag other people’s photos or videos – you can only tag the photos or videos that you post on your account.

 

I’m sure that many people are glad to welcome the new feature that is being added on Instagram. Instagram now shows the exact date of the photos and videos that users post on their account. It is obvious that this new feature is very helpful to the users. They will now know the exact date that they have taken the photo or the exact date that an important event was held. This update is available on iOS and will soon be present on Android devices. Unlike before, it would be more easy for the users to recall the things that they have done or the places that they have visited on that specific date.

To recall, Instagram is used by over 400 million people. Instagram publishes more than 80 million photos a day.

Posted by dotmaster on March 24, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Twitter is a fantastic tool for discovery of content, discussions and information that is why many people want to be part of it. It is great for those people who want to know the latest updates about their favorite celebrities, politicians, bands, and other people that interests them. Also, it is one of the most popular online social networking service in the world. If you are a registered user, you can post and read short messages which are called tweets in the Twitter world. Twitter users often use the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword/phrase that has no spaces when they tweet. One problem with Twitter is that it had closed on itself. Access to content that offers this service is difficult and complicated for those who do not own an account.

No example of contents was proposed from the home page. Although essential for several recent years, user base tends to level off. New users arriving on Twitter.com were entitled to a page that invited them to be registered. No example of content was offered which is really not good. It is obviously possible to see a user’s profile or start a search from search.twitter.com, but it’s still quite complicated for someone who knows nothing about the network.

The new home page offers themed tweets grouped by various categories. The redesign of the home page offers popular tweets/trends grouped under eight themes: Featured, News, Sports, Culture, Government, Institutions & NGOs, TV and Music.

It is extremely interesting that the contents that are available differ depending on the geographic location and language of the person visiting the site. Finally, it is possible to start a search from the home page. So, it is now easier to use even by those people who have just used the service for the first time.

I consider this new development really interesting and most likely it will attract people to consider Twitter as their main tool to express or advertise something that means to them. However, I must admit that it needs more improvement so that more and more people could use it in an easy and effective way. It is undeniable that the number of people who choose Twitter as platform to share information continues to grow. The new home page is deployed in 23 territories. Among them, are Canada, France, Germany, Britain, the United States and the Netherlands.
