Instagram Rolls out “Collaborative Post Expansion”

Instagram is experimenting with a cool idea that might grab your attention. They’re exploring the possibility of enabling users to contribute their photos and videos to posts that are already live. This innovation could streamline group collaboration and content sharing on the platform.

According to app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi, if this idea becomes a reality, users could send their content to be part of a post. Just to keep you in the loop, any content they send in wouldn’t go public until the original poster gives it the green light. Essentially, this could pave the way for captivating compilations of photos and moments, collaboratively crafted by a community of individuals. While there’s no set date for trying this out, we’ll be sure to keep you informed about any progress.

YouTube Introduces “New Video Analytics”

YouTube has introduced a new feature in their recent video – YouTube Studio, that shows how many people are watching your videos in different styles. For instance, under Analytics > Content > All, you can easily see a summary of how many new, returning, and subscribed viewers you have for each type of video format. This makes it simpler to understand how well your videos are doing.

This change is mainly focused on Shorts, a type of video that’s becoming popular on YouTube. Lots of people – more than 2 billion – watch Shorts every month. To keep up with this trend, YouTube wants more creators to make short videos. This way, creators can get more people interested in their channel. YouTube has started to roll out this new way of looking at your video stats, and you’ll be able to see and use it from next week.
