Snapchat is the hot new kid on the social media scene, and it’s taking on Facebook and Instagram in the competition for mind space.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia offers a unique and remarkably interesting view when observed through the lens of social media. As an open and democratic perspective, social media has revealed aspects of this wealthy and conservative nation that have rarely been seen throughout its long history.
Of all the cool new terms that joined the English lexicon in the aftermath of the social media revolution, nothing is so underrated, and yet so well known as Facebook’s News Feed. Although it instigated a bit of controversy and opposition when it was first introduced, today it has become an almost Google-like presence in our daily lives.
Facebook is coming out with something new. Right on the heels of bringing forth a great change to its “Like” button, Facebook is back in the news with another introduction: the Live feature. With this new feature comes the ability to live stream a video across Facebook which can be seen by all your friends.
Of all the things that Facebook’s billion+ users have been requesting, arguing, clamouring and signing petitions for, nothing is more prevalent and has gained more support than their cries to include a “Dislike’ button. And to a point, it’s with good reason. If, for example, a friend was to post something tragic on their wall, “liking” it doesn’t really seem like an appropriate response.
Last year, Facebook’s live streaming was allowed only for popular faces but this has drastically changed now. Anyone with an iPhone can broadcast live videos through Facebook’s new live streaming feature.
Though this feature is implemented for US iPhone users currently, Facebook live streaming is expected to reach the rest of the world within a short while.
The world is moving faster than ever. Technology gets outdated in no time, attention spans plummet and brands compete with each other to gain a strong online presence. Videos on Facebook enjoy a whopping 100 million hours of viewership every day and each moment can make a big difference for advertisers. Facebook video ads can take your business to success and add value to your brand.
