Facebook Messenger Will Now Include Autoplaying Ads With Your Private Conversations

  Facebook Messenger Will Now Include Autoplaying Ads With Your Private Conversations The problem with becoming a massively successful company that's publicly traded is that you have to keep growing. Facebook is running out of new places to force its ads and it's now going to start throwing autoplaying videos into Messenger. Messenger alone is ranked as the third most popular social network by monthly users and, unlike Facebook's main product, it's a relatively clutter-free zone.

  Facebook is shuttering a bunch of its apps you didn’t bother to use © Provided by The Next Web Facebook announced today that it’s killing off three mobile apps that folks didn’t care much about: Hello, Moves, and tbh.

Don’t worry if you didn’t know about these before. Hello was only available in Brazil, Nigeria, and the US and meant to replace your Android dialer. Moves was designed to record your fitness activity, similar to scores of other apps. And tbh’s anonymous social network for high school students in the US was acquired just eight months ago.

The company noted that it’s sunsetting these apps because they weren’t being used much, and because it needs to prioritize its efforts on issues and services that matter to its core audience. It’s also promised to delete user data from its servers within 90 days of shutting down those apps in the next few weeks.

Instagram launches a Lite app for low-end Android devices

  Instagram launches a Lite app for low-end Android devices Instagram has released a lightweight version of its Android app that should be easier to install and browse on devices short on storage space and on spotty connections. TechCrunch notes that the new app, which weighs in at just 573KB, is 1/55th the size of the original app at 33MB.

Pandora users can share music to their Snapchat stories .
Pandora was one of the first to announce its partnership with Snap, and now the music streaming service is all set for its users to start sharing in Snapchat Stories. The feature is only iOS for now — an Android version is expected in the coming weeks. When you're in the Pandora app, tap on the Share button in the Now Playing screen, select Share on Snapchat and add the song to your Story (or send directly to a friend or group). Anyone who swipes up when viewing your share will be able to listen to the song on demand, whether they're a subscriber or not. There's no need to connect your Snapchat with your Pandora app, either.
