They come as a separate report showed the number of police officers has fallen to its lowest level since 1985.

Instagram Now Shows Your Activity Status By Default

Image
Instagram has quietly introduced a new feature to the app which means people can see when you were last active on Instagram.

One way of getting people to keep coming back, and to interact with others, is to shame them for their absence. Which is Instagram’s latest trick. Everyone...Read the full article: Instagram Now Shows Your Activity Status By Default

Image
YouTube is cracking down on videos showing people eating Tide Pods. Because this is apparently a thing now.
