Instagram rolls out another new feature

The app has now officially added a new suggested list of posts you can scroll through once you’re all caught up on the latest from the accounts you follow. The new feature focuses on making users aware of how their time is spent on the app, with the alert serving as a prompt to stop scrolling as you’re all caught up – but if you’re interested in discovering new posts then the option is there.


Facebook expanding on e-commerce feature

Back in May Facebook announced new e-commerce features in response to many businesses having to shift online due to the pandemic. Now, the company is updating the experience by testing a new section called Facebook Shop which will be a shopping destination for users to find products from a variety of different businesses.


TikTok boss quits

Kevin Mayer, the chief executive for global app TikTok, has quit just days after the app launched legal action against the Trump administration over an executive order banning US companies from doing business with the platform. The threat is an attempt from Trump to crack down on Chinese-owned tech firms amid concerns over national security and the app’s owner has been given 90 days to sell up to an American buyer or face the nationwide ban.

Toby Carvery, Harvester and Prezzo are amongst the few who will be offering the scheme in September.
