1. Videos are taking the front seat and you’ll notice viewing videos on your mobile, you’re introduced to a whole stream of related videos. Videos are also automatically playing on mute and is visually enticing for you to spend a few split seconds more to engage with the post.
2. Facebook will be rolling out video ads real soon in our Asia Pacific region
3. In place of the dislike button you have a whole string of emoticons you can select to react to your newsfeed article.
4. Now you get to pick which preview image goes on links of posts you share
