Facebook And Instagram Gets A New Feature.

The new feature, available now, includes two new settings, one that allows users to turn off likes when scrolling on the feed and another that allows users to turn off likes on their own posts.

The social media sites are now giving users the option to hide likes, according to the Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri.

The idea was to try to depressurize Instagram a little bit, to allow people to be able to focus more on the people that they care about and being inspired and worry a little bit less about how many likes they or other people are getting.”

You’ll now be able to toggle an option to hide all like counts on all posts in your feed on both Instagram and Facebook today. A separate option will let you hide your own like counts to others. You can also hide like counts on a per-post basis on Instagram, so there’s a little more flexibility to allow people to focus on the content of posts rather than the like counts. Facebook will get these same per-post controls in the next few weeks.

Amazon Makes A Purchase

OK so they’re millions of folks that shop and buy things from Amazon everyday but have  you ever thought …what does Amazon buy when it goes shopping…how about an entire film and tv company…a big one like MGM. Well Amazon has reached a deal to MGM for $8.45 billion, the companies announced today. Amazon said it hopes to leverage MGM’s storied film making history and wide-ranging catalog of 4,000 films and 17,000 TV shows to help bolster Amazon Studios, its film and TV division. I’m sure this has a lot to do with helping Amazon get more prime video subscribers and to compete with the likes of Netflix and Disney Plus.

The deal is Amazon’s second-largest acquisition. It paid $13.7 billion for Whole Foods in 2017.
