At a press conference held in Menlo Park Thursday Facebook announced a redesign for the News Feed its users see when they visit its site or use its mobile app. The new News Feed focuses on reducing clutter, making visually oriented posts like photos more prominent. It also makes filters for types of content front and center, such as dedicated feeds for posts by friends or posts by pages.
A number of Instagram's 90 million active users are in a confused panic after being locked out of their accounts over the weekend, and several seem to believe they've been hacked.
On Saturday, the same day the Facebook-owned photo-sharing app enacted its revised terms or service, Yahoo Answers was inundated with threads from alarmed Instagram users who claimed to have lost access to their accounts for no apparent reason.
In an attempt to corner off Twitter-integration from any third-party applications, Twitter has now announced that photo integration from Instagram will no longer work, meaning tweets with images will not have an image embedded in the tweet, but rather a traditional link to the image. Furthermore, images will not appear in the user photo gallery either.
Due to the growing popularity and higher demand for its use, Instagram just launched a PC version called Instagrille. This free desktop app provides all Instagram experience from the mobile to the PC.
All its mobile features such as effects, feeds, profile views, comments, and likes are available to PC users. Instagrille also allows the user to search, share, and download photos from Instagram directly into the computer.
