Keep on reading to find out some of the biggest updates and new features in the world of social media

  • Snapchat has finally made a long-awaited update – users are now able to update their username on the app. If you picked a name for yourself that was hilarious when you were 13 but now just makes you cringe whenever you see it, you can now change it without affecting anything like your friends list or Snapcode. The only conditions are that you can’t pick a name that’s already been used, and you can only change it once a year. https://bit.ly/3Ifs50l
  • Twitter now gives you the option to pin DM chats. You can pin six chats to the top of your inbox, even if you start other chats. Now you can easily keep in touch with people instead of scrolling through your inbox searching for them. The feature could also be useful for brands dealing with customer queries on Twitter, with a way to separate urgent or important chats from the rest of your messages. https://bit.ly/3p9uO3V
  • Reddit has added new options for those uploading images on the iOS app. Users can now crop or rotate images before posting, or add text, stickers, or drawings to them just like in Instagram Stories. They’re also adding filters and AR lenses similar to the ones on Snapchat. The features will be available on iOS soon, and they’ll be coming to Android in the near future, so keep an eye out for them. https://bit.ly/3JQkQMF
  • LinkedIn is getting into the podcasting game with the launch of its new LinkedIn Podcast Network. Users will be able to listen to a range of shows on business and technology trends and news, from established creators and journalists as well as the team at LinkedIn. The podcasts will be available on LinkedIn, by following the hosts and subscribing to their newsletter, or you can find them on podcast providers like Spotify and Pocket Casts. https://bit.ly/3JPmKNt
  • Facebook has rolled out Reels on the platform, with a display right at the top of users’ feeds. Facebook Reels had already been available in the US, but they’re now in 150 more countries. It will get a lot more people watching the short-form videos, and Facebook’s also adding more creative features, giving users the ability to remix Reels, post 60-second long videos, and share other people’s Reels in their own Stories. https://bit.ly/3HfWQAM

Get a pizza the action

The restaurant chain Pizza Express have undergone a bit of a rebrand, with a new ad campaign voiced by the comedian and Peep Show star David Mitchell. The company looks to be taking things in a new direction – as well as a new look, and new dishes like pizza wraps, Pizza Express has also launched a its own loyalty scheme.

Anyone can join the Pizza Express Club and earn points and rewards every time you eat at the restaurant – you even get free dough balls just for signing up. The bright and colourful advert is Pizza Express’ first one in over a decade, and features a mixture of pizza-loving misfits, to show that anyone will be rewarded, whoever they are or regardless of why they’re visiting the restaurant.

You can watch the ad here, but be warned – you’ll want a slice or two of pizza by the end of it: https://youtu.be/47EgqsTvBc0
