If you can find an issue or expose a flaw in Facebook or Instagram (which Facebook owns) they will pay you. The program is called the Facebook bug bounty program.

Jani discovered the power to erase comments on any user account even Justin Bieber. Jani is the youngest person to receive recognition for Facebook’s bug bounty program. Facebook will pay Jani $10,000 for his discovery!

Instagram 60 second video clips

 

What do 140 character tweets, 150 character bios and 15 second video clips have in common? Well, they all force us to limit our real life to social media experiences.

However, today, you can scratch one off the list. Instagram has now approved for “grammers” to record up to 60 seconds of video coverage with its new update. No more cutting and adjusting, this new feature grants us 45 more seconds of footage to share with our followers. What was once only allowed for advertisers will now become available to us all.

This update will be issued to iPhones and Androids; but here’s the catch…only a few people will immediately have the update, the rest of us will have to wait for the months to come; but I’m sure that wait will be worth it.
