Five things in five minutes

Facebook unveils future for Messenger, Snapchat (finally!) improves search and the Facebook Journalism Project is here!

Here's five things in five minutes to wrap up your week.

With over one billion monthly active users, Facebook’s Messenger is fast becoming the universal form of communication. In 2017, we expect to see more video content, better brand integration and use of AI chat.

Ever struggled to find a friend on Snapchat? Same. The app’s new and improved visual search bar puts chat, groups and new friends at your fingertips!

After making headlines around the world, Facebook has declared war on fake news. The Journalism Project aims to train journalists, strengthen reputable news partners and promote ‘news literacy’ on Facebook.

Cute puppy videos and memes will never be the same again after this week’s shut down of video-sharing app Vine. Vine Camera, a camera-to-tweet app, replaces the app after a decline in revenue.

Facebook’s gamble on live video has paid off, as the social platform overtakes video giant YouTube as the most popular live streaming platform. Expect more live content from brands (and friends!) throughout 2017.
