SnapChat introduces new World Lenses
Admit it, we’ve all had fun using SnapChat lenses and filters.

If you use SnapChat for business, this will allow you to be even more creative. Watch the video that explains the new update
YouTube has dropped the live streaming requirement
Back in February when YouTube gave people the ability to live stream directly to their channel from their phones, it was limited to those who had at least 10,000 subscribers. They have now dropped the requirement to 1000 subscribers. Use this opportunity to get together with your team and come up with some exciting live videos to engage with your followers.
