Messenger is introducing a bunch of new features based on the holiday season, including new AR effects, Soundmoji options featuring Taylor Swift’s album, and a new option of bill-splitting within group chat threads.

 

The interactive AR features are part of the new group effects for video calls and can be accessed by multiple people in a group video chat. Messenger has collaborated with some of the high-profile influencers from other apps for these effects, like King Bach, TikTok star Bella Poarch and Zack King. Of course, this is part of Facebook’s attempt to attract young users to its platform; something that it has been lacking.

 


For a similar purpose, Facebook has added new Soundmoji options featuring the world’s favorite artist Taylor Swift and her new album Red. Soundmojis are Messenger’s emoji characters with audio snippets that can be played by users when they receive a message with a Soundmoji.

Time to Get Smart About Buying Smartphones and Other Devices

This holiday season, many consumers will find it difficult to find and receive some of the electronic devices they’re looking for to give to family and friends. Unfortunately, the shipping industry has also fallen victim to the global effects of the COVID pandemic, and 50% of consumers are seeing that items they want are already out of stock.

Alcohol and Brain

Alcohol affects your body quickly. 20% of alcohol passes into your bloodstream through your stomach and the rest 80% enters the bloodstream through your small intestine. Once there, the blood carries the alcohol to all important organs (the brain, liver, and heart) as if it was the nutrition that your body needs. It reaches the brain only in 5 minutes.

Mailchimp isn't the Champ

Although Mailchimp is a market leader, it isn't perfect. 


The system has not always provided all small and medium-sized businesses, bloggers, online store owners, and other smaller users' needs. 


They have limitations in their features, which can be a problem if you expect them to do more for your business. Moreover, they don't have autonomy over email design, customer service could be better, and the cost of accessing the additional features in the pro version is ridiculously expensive.

Alcoholism Stages: How Do Abuse and Dependence Occur?

Drinking alcohol is like playing with fire. Whether a person does it in moderation or is prone to binge drinking, there’s always a risk to get burned. There comes a moment in avid alcoholics’ lives when they look around and see that everything they love is burning: time, health, relationships with loved ones, career. 


Of course, every case of alcoholism is unique due to genetic predisposition, life circumstances, and other factors. Someone drinks often and doesn’t face many undesirable consequences. But the other can progress quite fast from having a beer after work to working to buy a drink.

YouTube is developing a new tool for YouTube Studio, called Search Insights, which is designed to give insights about what users are searching for on the platform. The information will be provided to creators in relation to their channels and content, as well as for other general search queries.

 

The feature is currently being tested by YouTube and is going to be available in the Analytics/Research tab. There will also be two separate tabs for query research: the Your Viewers’ Searches tab that provides a listing of what viewers are searching for, and the Searches Across YouTube tab that provides insight into the most common search queries based on keywords.

 

The first insights tab will show what people who regularly view your content are also looking for on YouTube, including key topics of interest among them. It will also show the overall search volume of each viewer, along with the amount of traffic that your channel has drawn based on each query.

Online shopping and safety risks

Online shopping has become a huge trend where billions of people shop online through various websites over the internet. Even if the buyers take a rest for a few weeks, the brand comes up with massive sale campaigns that attract the buyers incredibly. Buying was never this convenient until the discovery of eCommerce.

Are you also a regular online purchaser? You must be overwhelmed with the sales offered frequently by your favorite brands, right? Currently, most of the brands worldwide are offering Black Friday sales where people get magnificent discounts on items that they couldn’t buy at their original price.

This is where people forget everything and rather than visiting the stores, head to the online websites to get their hands on their favorite items before the stock runs out. But, what they forget is the risk of entering too many websites without keeping in mind their data collection trends.
