Tech Bytes: expansion of “Buy with Prime”
There’s been more changes at Twitter. The site is defaulting users to a “For You” page – similar to TikTok. The button allowing users to switch between an algorithm and chronological order, is gone. Instead you’ll see “For You” and “Following” tabs.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is placing new restrictions on advertisers’ ability to target teenagers. Starting next month, the company is no longer letting marketers use gender to aim ads at teens. The only criteria will be age and location.
Amazon is expanding it’s “Buy with Prime” program. The move allows more online retailers to offer the service that comes with benefits, like free shipping and next-day delivery. Only shoppers who pay for a prime membership will be allowed to use the “buy with prime” button on other websites.
