Instagrammers were excited about three big changes to the app this week, namely:
- The like and comment buttons have now moved up to just below the picture (no need to scroll past the comments) now represented by only a heart and a speech balloon.
- The app has three outdoorsy new filters: Lark, Reyes, and June.
- Users can now include emojis in hashtags.

But what is equally, if not more, notable is Facebook Messenger's replacement of its sent receipts.
The “Delivered” notification under a message has been replaced by circles with check marks that turn blue once it has been delivered. On the other hand, the “Seen” notification has been replaced by small circles containing the profile picture of the reader. (Same goes for a group thread, where multiple circles appear.) So while you can't get seen-zoned anymore, you may literally be friend-zoned.
