Twitter is testing out Twitter emoji reactions. These are similar to Facebook reactions.
Essentially, instead of just liking a tweet, you can use emojis to tell people how you really feel about a tweet.
LinkedIn's Updated Mobile App
Another big change this week comes from LinkedIn.
They've done a major overhaul on their mobile app to make it more user friendly.
Personally, we feel it looks a lot like Facebook's mobile app.
You can get the new updated mobile app here.
Instagram Testing Multiple Accounts
Another big update this week comes from Instagram.
They're currently testing the ability to switch between different Instagram accounts from one account.
Right now this feature is only available on Android.

Facebook Page Plugin for Messenger
Posted by Facebook Developers on Tuesday, December 1, 2015
Instead of having to go to your Facebook Page to message your business, you can now "easily message your business without ever leaving your website."
This is done using the new Facebook Page Plugin for Messenger.
Facebook Launches Live Video and Collage
One last update this week in social media comes from Facebook.
They've introduced Facebook live video and collage.
Facebook Live Video let's you create a broadcast for others to subscribe to.
The second feature is called Facebook Collage.
Collage takes photos and videos that you create and groups them into a "scrolling, moving collage."
Read the Facebook Live Video and Collage announcement to learn more.
