Snack Social Summary- US Presidential election will be streamed on YouTube, Twitter makes changes to Vine, and Facebook removes edited feature?

The Presidential inauguration will be live-streamed on YouTube. Google’s video service has partnered with a variety of outlets including NBC, CBS, Telemundo, Univision and The Washington Post to live stream on the platform. Some streams will be in 4K quality or 360-degrees technology – a first. Social Media played an important role during the elections themselves keeping millions engaged. Live-streaming President-elect Donald Trump being sworn in as the 45th POTUS allows Social Media to continue to keep people informed and up-to-date.

This week Twitter turned off the sharing, commenting and re-Vining functions on Vines and released Vine Camera as an app update on iOS and Android. Twitter itself now automatically loops all videos shorter than 6.5 seconds, including videos posted from other apps like Snapchat. Vine Camera will allow you to save all photos or videos on your personal camera roll or tweet it out through Twitter adding a personal caption.

Twitter has released Emoji and Stickers to mark the Australian Open. The hashtag #AusOpen will add special event emoji to tweets about the tournament. Stickers can also be added from the AO collection to photos uploaded onto Twitter. The Australian Open is the first Grand Slam in the world to get their very own Twitter Stickers.

Facebook looks to be removing the “Edited” label on posts which have been amended. By removing the label, it provides users the ability to change posts without others knowing about it. Users would still be able to click on the top right-hand corner of the post to see its “edit history”.
