While the company has yet to officially announce TikTok Notes’ availability, we’ve confirmed that it is now rolling out on the Canadian Google Play and Apple App Stores.

TikTok Notes' core function is sharing photos, while the main TikTok app maintains its focus on short videos. Unlike Instagram, TikTok Notes’ feed features a grid that features multiple posts at once. Users can click on an individual post to view it in full-screen mode and read or leave comments.

Airchat is a new social media app that encourages users to “just talk.” Although it operates similarly to Twitter, where posts can be viewed in a feed, it uniquely allows users to hear posts delivered in the author's own voice and tone. Unlike Clubhouse, which is centered around live audio, Airchat uses pre-recorded audio messages.

The team includes Investor & AngelList founder Naval Ravikant and former Tinder product exec Brian Norgard. Naval's bet on social audio comes from the idea that he believes “Humans are all meant to get along with other humans, it just requires the natural voice”.

Chase Bank has a new side hustle. The ad-selling business. Advertisers can now serve personalized offers to Chase's 80 million customers based on their spending habits through Chase Media Solutions. Chase talked up the "precise targeting capabilities" they can offer based on their first-party data.

Companies including Amazon, Uber, and Marriott have also become digital media networks that open (indirect) access to their large unique data sets to advertisers in recent years.

The ByteDance-owned app will let certified artists promote their live events by adding AXS event links to their videos, and sell tickets via TikTok's ticketing feature. The goal is to create a "seamless ticket-buying access to some of the world’s most iconic venues, festivals and tours".

Initially, AXS events will be available on TikTok in the US, UK, Sweden, and Australia.

According to the sources, TikTok may release a feature that would see AI-generated "Influencers" delivering video ad reads on behalf of advertisers. The idea is for brands to provide a script and an AI avatar will produce a video promoting the product on TikTok.

Even though TikTok believes AI Creators would complement their Content Creators, there is likely to be significant pushback from those Creators who drive the platform forward and rely on brand partnerships.

Some users have started sharing a new Instagram feature. There is a prompt to 'Ask Meta AI anything' along with several suggested questions. The results provide a selection of Reels that fit the user's search query.

Meta has already announced plans to heavily integrate AI across their family of apps. With Meta's reach, billions of people will have the company's AI chat easily at their disposal.

Google's generative AI tools will be combined with WPP's marketing and advertising data. This will enable WPP’s clients to create brand and product-related marketing assets using AI.

The solution is intended to help the advertising group's clients gain deeper insights into their target audiences, accurately predict and explain content effectiveness, and optimize campaigns.

'Shopping Collections' is a new way for Content Creators to curate a set of products from their favorite brands or their own product line. Collections will appear in a Creator’s video description, product list, and Store tab.

Also, YouTube is launching a new Affiliate Hub directly to enable Content Creators to find a list of active brand partners, commission rates, promo codes, and an option to request samples from top brands.

Within the Start Menu, the Recommendations section is being used to promote apps from the Microsoft Store. Normally this section is used to display recently used files or apps. However, now include it suggestions from the Microsoft Store which feel like ads.

TikTok’s upcoming Instagram competitor app for sharing photos could be named TikTok Notes, according to screenshots posted by users. TikTok confirmed the app is in development.

Over the last few days, TikTok users have been getting pop-up notifications about the new TikTok Notes app to share photos.

According to the Financial Times, future Google AI search features could be behind a paywall. Google recently launched 'Google One', a monthly subscription offering an advanced version of Gemini. Adding search features to the bundle would mark the first time that Google has charged users to use any part of its search product.

Google’s traditional search engine would remain free of charge, while ads would continue to appear alongside search results even for subscribers.

The merger with Talkwalker will enable Hootsuite’s 200,000 customers to set up keyword alerts to monitor social media mentions. Hootsuite explained that Talkwalker's technology will build on the social listening features that Hootsuite already has.

One stand-out feature is that AI will analyze consumer data and generate actionable strategies.
