1 minute read

Let’s sit back and enjoy a quick rundown of three news stories that have caught our eye this week…

1. Instagram stories arrives

This week a rival to Snapchat arrived, Instagram stories. Instagram have said the new feature “lets you share all the moments of your day, not just the ones you want to keep on your profile.”. Will you be using the new feature?

2. Are you hooked to your device?

A new piece of research from Ofcom has found that 59% of people surveyed consider themselves to be hooked on their devices. Are you in need of a digital detox? The BBC has more information.


3. The Olympics from space!

With the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics happening tonight (5th August), we couldn’t resist sharing this set of pictures of the Olympic park, as seen from space!
