Instagram is testing a full-screen home feed

Did you know that when you log in to TikTok, the first thing you see (except for ads) is a full-screen portrait video? Instagram is testing features that provide a similar instant immersive experience with the goal of "making videos more readable and central." It seems to be a theme that repeats in Meta!

Of course, what we mean here is that Instagram continues to do everything it can to distract us from TikTok. Instagram parent company Meta said in a revenue report last week that TikTok clone Reels accounts for more than 20% of the time spent on Instagram. On Facebook, videos of all kinds make up 50% of the time users spend on the platform.

In addition to TikTok's jealousy, this test also affects how your photos will appear in your feed. Every time Instagram misrepresents the size of an image post, it's controversial.

For full-screen home channel tests, you can also use the bottom navigation bar to access the Discovery tab, reels, purchases, and your own page. There are also icons on the top bar for switching accounts, creating posts, reviewing notifications, and displaying messages. The test image we took didn't show where the story would appear, but Instagram rep confirmed that the story was at the top of the feed. The screenshot was taken after scrolling and will not appear in this layout. The top of the feed.

Stories are currently making more money on Instagram than on Lille because they have a better infrastructure for selling ads in stories. The company plans to add more options for cashing reels, but according to earnings announcements, the promotion of cashing reels will continue for several years.

Like Meta, Google is competing with TikTok through YouTube Shorts. Google announced last week that it has begun testing ads on YouTube Shorts. YouTube Shorts has 30 billion views per day, four times last year. Meta didn't share a particular number in reel view, but the video's presence in meta properties is growing.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
