The Instagram Algorithm - Decoding and Understanding

The Instagram Algorithm - Decoding and Understanding Users were dissatisfied when Instagram launched its new feed algorithm, replacing the previous popular chronological feed system. The height of frustration can be well estimated from the fact that a petition, which called for the reversal of this change, earned around 70,000 signatories in merely 24 hours.

Google's Ad Products Undergo Rebranding

Google's Ad Products Undergo Rebranding As the users continued to complain about the complexity of Google’s ad products, the management decided it was  time for rebranding . In a press conference, Mr. Sridhar Ramaswamy, the senior vice-president of ads and commerce at Google, briefed that this renovation would primarily be the upgradation of name, but not limited to just that.

It has come to a point now that Google is not even trying to camouflage those ideas as its own anymore as each image now comes with a sufficiently detailed explanation of its belonging. If you're browsing a product that has its ties to Google Shopping, you'll be notified if its available or not along with a link that you could order it with. A hint of Al-related options are also available, not very striking in similarity visually, but recognizable enough. While explaining to  TechCrunch , Google responded with: "We're constantly experimenting to improve our experience with Google Images and don't have an
