On Tuesday 30 April, Facebook debuted a makeover for its main app at its annual developer conference, F8, in San Jose, California. Speaking at the event, CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained that Facebook Messenger has been rewritten from scratch: it now includes ways for people to watch videos together. Likewise, the Facebook app has been entirely redesigned (“The app isn’t even blue anymore!”), and a new desktop webpage will launch later this year. Both will feature new mobile and desktop apps and a “friends” tab that brings Instagram stories and Facebook posts into the app. And, according to CNN, Instagram has also been updated with a wide range of features, including fund-raising and shopping options: users will now be able to buy directly from influencers (Kim Kardashian West, Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid are among those influencers taking part in the test scheme).
