Instagram Will Soon Display View Counts In Place Of Likes Underneath Videos

Instagram is a social network built around sharing photos. In 2015, the service introduced the ability to share video clips. Now it's about to implement another way of determining how popular those videos are becoming.

Right now, the only feedback uploaders can go off are the number of likes and comments they receive. Soon, Instagram will introduce view counts.

Google+ Now Really Wants You To See The Posts You Missed While You Were Away

There's a widely known issue with social networks—they're impossible to keep up with. Something is always happening, and unless you follow only a handful of people, there's no way you can read all the content that streams by.

To get around this, some networks have taken their own approach to resurfacing content you may have missed. Facebook and Twitter do this. Now Google+ does as well.

VNC Viewer 2.0 (From RealVNC) Remotes Into The Play Store With Material Design, Immersive Fullscreen, And More

Running remote desktop software from an Android device has a different purpose than doing the same from a traditional PC.

Pujie Black Gets A Material Makeover, Shortcut Actions, Central Color Palette, And Plenty Of Nice Improvements

Out of all the watch maker applications on Android, Pujie Black is my favorite. I find the interface easier than WatchMaker, plus it's accessible on Android instead of requiring a web browser like Facer. I also love that I paid once for the app and I can get all of the community's creations for free and edit them to fit my personal needs. There's a learning curve to figuring out what everything does inside the app, but once you've got the hang of it, there are hundreds of things you can change to specifically tailor it to your preference. I personally like seeing my steps, the date, and PST timing (Artem's timezone) as the 3 Pujie indicators, and I love having a tap action to play/pause Pocket Casts specifically.
