Salute Your Shorts
YouTube will be rolling out its own “short-form video tool that lets creators and artists shoot snappy videos with nothing but their mobile phones,” called Shorts.

Clubhouse is gaining traction but is currently invite-only for Apple users, Twitter is in test-mode with Spaces, and Facebook is reported to be building their own audio-only Rooms feature.
Instagram recently launched new features designed to protect teens from ill-meaning adults, such as not allowing adults to DM people under 18 who do not already follow them. We love that IG is taking action to create a safer space for young people!
