Social Snapshot – 18.11.20

Fleets are finally here, make your Messenger chats auto-disappear and receive help from Instagram – let’s take a look at it all in today’s Social Snapshot:

 

Facebook adds new ‘vanish mode’ for Messenger

Facebook has announced a new ‘vanish mode’ for Messenger, in which your messages will disappear as soon as you leave the chat. Messenger already has a feature that sets a time limit for auto-erasing messages, but with ‘vanish mode’, it is slightly more user-friendly for those that want to keep their conversations private.

Fleets are finally here

Instagram expands Guides feature to all users

Now the format will be available to all users, and Guides will be expanded to include other types of content, as well — including Products, Places and Posts.
