Instagram, the photo and video sharing network owned by Meta, is now testing a new feature that lets users edit their friends’ posts with images and videos. Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri revealed the function during a webcast on the social media network. Users can add images and videos to posts by clicking the ‘Add to post’ button, which appears in the bottom left corner of the post. The original person who uploaded the content will still have the last say over it, though. To learn more about this upcoming feature, continue reading.
Instagram new feature lets you add photos to others’ posts
As previously announced, the new functionality may eventually allow you to attach images or videos to posts made by other users. Nevertheless, the individual who originally uploaded the post must accept the picture or video you posted. As of right now, Instagram carousel posts can have up to ten images or videos in them. It is possible that the platform will raise this limit if this feature is activated. However, as of right now, the company has not provided any confirmation.
Furthermore, the company is considering implementing a function that would enable users to use a brief or looping video as their Notes profile image. We will learn more about these features over time as not much has been disclosed about them yet. According to reports, Instagram wants to increase user engagement with these kinds of features.
Instagram posts used to train Meta’s AI
During the Connect launch event last month, Meta introduced its own AI helper. A Reuters story from shortly after the AI assistant’s debut claimed that it was trained on publicly accessible Facebook and Instagram posts. According to the report, Meta’s President of Global Affairs, Nick Clegg, stated that the AI assistant, the business just released was primarily trained on publicly accessible Facebook and Instagram data. This indicates that Meta AI was trained using the images and videos that users uploaded to the public. The corporation did not use the photos and videos that were shared with intimate friends alone.
Furthermore, according to Clegg, Meta did not train the chatbot using any of its users’ private interactions. The business also made an effort to remove personal information from publicly available datasets that were utilized for training.
Clegg stated that the “vast majority” of the data that Meta utilized for training was openly available. “We’ve tried to exclude datasets that have a heavy preponderance of personal information,” Clegg stated. Meta chose not to use LinkedIn, for example, because it held user-private content.
