Christmas and the New Year have come and gone, and we’re back with our first update on the happenings in the world of social media in 2017!

Thanks for checking out Last Week on Social (we’re sticking with the title), the blog series dedicated to providing a simple way to stay on top of the latest news and announcements from each of the major social media networks.

Every week, (typically) we round-up the latest updates from Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, and others that may impact the way you use social media networks for your business.

For the period of December 12 – January 8, here’s a breakdown of news and updates:


Group Video Chat in Messenger

Group video chat in Messenger is now available on Android and iOS devices, as well as on desktop.


Stickers for Stories

Wish you could add stickers to your Instagram stories? Now you can!


Live Video

Live video – powered by Periscope – is now finally available on Twitter.


LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube had quiet news weeks with no announcements worth reporting.

As always, if we’ve missed something, please feel free to bring it to our attention in the comments.
