Instagram has finally answered our prayers! The popular photo sharing site now supports multiple accounts without signing out of the mobile app. The new update will allow users to add up to five additional accounts.

This feature has been one of the most popular requests for some time now, and will aid bloggers, business owners, and social media strategists everywhere.

While multiple accounts make our lives more convenient, it also allows for mistakes to be made by accidentally posting to an alternative account. Be sure to be mindful of your avatar photo on the lower right corner when posting to ensure you post to the correct account.

Thumbs Up to Snapchat’s Latest Update!

Snapchat rolled out some major user friendly updates today. The biggest change, “Tap to View,” ends an era of tired thumbs. Simply tap to watch your friend’s snap or story.

Another new feature allows you to quickly add contacts. When you’re with your pals, open “Add Nearby” and a list of your friends will pop up so you can add them with a tap.

“Snapcodes” got a major face lift. Users can personalize their “Snapcodes” by uploading a selfie, and if you see a “Snapcode” on an other site, screenshot it to add the contact through “Add Friends.”

Lastly, and probably most importantly, Snapchat beefed up its security with two-factor authentication. Make sure to enable this feature to avoid hackers.
