Oh, don’t we live in a world surrounded by Facebook, Whatsapp, and many other raging social networking sites? Any event in our lives can be translated into material for such places. And the makers are burning their midnight oil to provide users with some of the best features, which are not only user-friendly but creative as well.
Recently, Whatsapp came up with a new addition as well. This change lets its users make or write status updates with a colourful background. The idea of the modification is taken from Facebook. Even they incorporated the change of such nature. The similarity is uncanny. Whatsapp has gone a step ahead; the makers had added an option where people can put links, choose their font sizes for the status. So with the feature of image or video as your status, you can do this as well.
Mark Zuckerberg came up with this idea in the month of December back in 2016. And it has been widely appreciated from then on. It was successfully able to engage users creatively. Then even Whatsapp started testing the feature earlier this month. The upgrade will be launched to all the users today itself. Just like the standard disappearing status, the colourful background will also get deleted after the span of a day gets over. This is just a new choice added to the stories of Whatsapp. The idea was originally conceived by Snapchat but it looks like all the major social media sites have copied it.
It is safe to say that in today’s world everything is being done to provide people with a variety of mediums to state their opinions, stories, ideas and information. Nobody is left behind. There is a growing similarity among these companies in terms of features that they offer, implying that there is already a layout for a social networking site to follow. A standardised blueprint has been produced and is used by most of the users.
If you are a person who already has the update, please do let us know what you think about it. Whether you found it worthy enough or not. This is because the stories feature on Whatsapp was not well received. People took their sweet time to get used to the option. It gained speed only recently that too very gradually.
