Instagram Scrolling Goes Sideways Instead Of Down Now And People Are Losing It


Actualización 27 de diciembre, 17:25: Instagram ha revertido los cambios pocos minutos después de que un gran número de usuarios vieran su aplicación actualizada repentinamente con el nuevo formato de navegación. Adam Mosseri, responsable de la plataforma, ha confirmado a través de su cuenta de Twitter que «se suponía que era una prueba muy pequeña, pero la extendimos más de lo que habíamos anticipado».

Instagram ha introducido este jueves uno de los cambios más notables en la aplicación que hemos vistos durante los últimos meses. Los usuarios que acceden a ella se están encontrando, en muchos casos, con que la plataforma cuenta ahora con un nuevo modo de navegación que destierra el modelo utilizado hasta el momento para visualizar las publicaciones de las personas a quienes siguen, adoptando estas un formato horizontal. Hasta ahora, el desplazamiento por los posts se realizaba haciendo un scrollvertical, deslizando de abajo hacia arriba para ir descendiendo entre las publicaciones del feed principal. En un sorpresivo movimiento, esta acción se lleva a cabo a partir de ahora deslizando de derecha a izquierda o pulsando en sendos extremos de la pantalla –y viceversa, para volver a los anteriores–, de manera similar a lo que ocurre con las Stories.

Nuevo formato, ¿nuevos problemas?

Este nuevo formato ofrece una visión más amplia de los posts a tamaño completo –se pueden ocultar las Stories con un pequeño desliz hacia arriba– y hace más accesibles los comentarios, los cuales se despliegan también de forma gestual. Sin embargo, no queda libre tampoco de revelar nuevas problemáticas de uso que no se encontraban anteriormente, como el impedimento de acceder a los mensajes directos o a la pantalla para subir una nueva historia haciendo para ello uso de gestos hacia la izquierda y derecha, respectivamente, desde la pantalla principal. El nuevo formato hace también más lenta la navegación entre publicaciones, mostrando solo una al mismo tiempo, y eleva las posibilidades de dar Me gusta a una fotografía por error si se está pasando de una a otra mediante la pulsación en lugar de deslizando. No son pocos, en consecuencia, los que han manifestado ya su descontento con los nuevos cambios y reclamado la vuelta del formato original en Instagram.

Miley Cyrus Marries Liam Hemsworth In Vivienne Westwood


Three Instagram pictures were all it took for Miley Cyrus to put a stop to the rumours surrounding her marriage to Liam Hemsworth. The couple, who have dated on and off for 10 years, were indeed wed at an intimate ceremony at Cyrus’s Tennessee property on the evening of December 23. The photographs that subsequently emerged on social media show the newlyweds embracing in front of a festively decorated fireplace.

In the third portrait, the singer tagged Vivienne Westwood, the creator of her off-the-shoulder silk gown. Hemsworth, who captioned his corresponding Instagram post “My love”, wore a black suit and trainers for the celebration.

Reports of a wedding began circulating earlier this week, when the couple’s friend Conrad Jack Carr posted Instagram stories of Cyrus, clad in her Westwood dress, and Hemsworth, stood amongst Mr and Mrs balloons. Cyrus’s mother, Tish, and her sisters, Noah and Brandi, as well as Liam’s brothers, Chris and Luke, were also present as the duo cut a cake.

After meeting on the set of 2010 teen romance The Last Song, Hemsworth proposed to Cyrus in 2012. The couple called off their relationship a year later, but began seriously dating again around 2016.

Lady Gaga’s 2-Part Residency Could Be Game-Changer for Las Vegas Residency Model


No other city does New Year’s Eve like Las Vegas. Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Gwen Stefani are among the superstars who will be ushering in the new year with performances at venues on the Las Vegas Strip, while more than 300,000 people are expected to gather on the world-famous corridor Monday (Dec. 31) to watch eight minutes of fireworks.

At another celebration in the downtown Fremont Street entertainment district, 12 bands will play under a massive video canopy that will show the ball drop in New York’s Time Square. “The only thing that can top Las Vegas is Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve,” said Jacqueline Peterson of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “The city continues to evolve itself. We never run out of things to do.”

Gaga’s New Year’s Eve concert at Park Theater at Park MGM casino-resort will be the third of her long-anticipated residency, which will debut Friday (Dec. 28). Veteran Las Vegas performer Celine Dion will be at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and Maroon 5 will celebrate the holiday once again at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Stefani will take the stage at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood casino-resort as part of the residency she kicked off this year. Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers and J. Cole are among those performing at nightclubs. While Las Vegas is known as a place for last-minute trips, tourists who want to ring in 2019 here should act fast. Tourism officials expect 318,000 people to travel to Sin City for the holiday and nearly all the city’s more than 147,000 hotel rooms to be booked.

“Now is the time to do it,” Chris Baldizan, senior vice president of entertainment booking and development at MGM Resorts International, said about booking a trip for the holiday. But “we’ll always find a spot for somebody.” New Year’s Eve is worth an estimated $403 million to Las Vegas, according to the convention and visitors authority, which is responsible for promoting the destination.

In addition to concerts with tickets on sale for the general public, casino operators also host over-the-top private parties for their VIP guests.

Caesars Entertainment hosted nine of those last year, which included DJs, dancers, fireworks shows, thousands of bottles of champagne and performances by Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and other stars. Five hangover brunches were served the next morning.  Unlike the two previous years, New Year’s Eve falls on a weekday. Casino operators say the Monday celebration is a positive because it gives people a reason to stay beyond a typical weekend trip. “It just means that more of our guests are coming in even earlier to spend more days celebrating in this great tradition,” said Chris Holdren, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Caesars Entertainment. “So, they may come in, spend the weekend and extend it to encompass the great holiday.”

Millie Bobby Brown Wants to Star in the “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” Sequel and The Cast Is So Into It



Following the Netflix video of the conversation between Noah Centineo and Lana Condor, which officially confirmed the return of the two heroes of the rom-com To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before to our screens, Millie Bobby Brown has made it abundantly clear that she’d love to appear in the sequel.

After seeing the two heroes, the Stranger Things actress posted a handful of videos on her Instagram account in which she pretends to weep with joy, according to Nylon:

«I want to thank Netflix, I want to thank Noah Centineo and Lana Condor. I wanna cry. If I could be an extra, please hit me up Netflix. You know, I do work for you already so I think there’s not gonna be an issue there.»

Millie Bobby Brown will soon make an appearance in Godzilla, before returning for a new season of Stranger Things. Anna Cathcart, who plays the heroine’s little sister in the film, reposted her story and tagged Netflix, hammering the message home. In terms of the cast, the trailer for the second film hints that a significant role is reserved for John Ambrose McClaren, who made a brief appearance at the end of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Although the character was played by Jordan Burtchett, the moment in the trailer when the actress makes a second phone call suggests that the character has been recast. Screenwriter Sofia Alvarez is reported to have been hired to adapt the second tome of Always and Forever, Lara Jean,written by American novelist Jenny Han. The sequel to the first book focuses on the way in which Lara Jean manages her feelings for Peter Kavinsky when another boy enters her life.

Lil Wayne calls JAY-Z a “real friend” for helping him pay off back taxes


TMZ broke the news: prodigy rapper Travis Scott whose last album Astroworld was nominated twice for the Grammy Awards will perform during the Super Bowl’s halftime. The event is said to be the biggest stage in the world, gathering more than 100 million viewers worldwide every year. He will join the band Maroon 5 for a show that is expected to be exceptional.

But one may wonder if he is to accept this honor. Ever since the announcement of his participation was made, several artists spoke up, including Jay Z, to try and convince him to decline because of the Colin Kaepernick case. In 2016, the American quarterback had kneeled during the Star Spangled Banner preseason in order to protest the police brutality against the Afro-American community. Following this, Donald Trump suggested that the NFL should fire the players protesting during the national anthem and Colin Kaepernick had been discarded by the league. Out of solidarity with the athlete, Jay Z called on Travis Scott to boycott the event, so did Meek Mill who tweeted: «He don’t need that he on fire already! Stay strong in this shit!» Travis Scott is yet to give his response.Wayne is likely referring to the $7.72 million in back taxes the rapper owed years ago. He paid it back in 2012, and as we now know it was apparently with the help of the Jigga Man.

Wayne also took a moment in Chicago to shout out producer Swizz Beats. “There’s people like Swizz Beatz that’s gonna send me every beat he make and want me to rap on every single one until I got my situation straight,” Wayne said.

Wayne’s doing solid these days. He finally released the long-awaited Tha Carter V after it languished in the wilderness for seven years. He also recently teamed up with Nicki Minaj for a new remix of “Good Form”, contributed to Future and Juice WRLD’s joint album, and popped up on the soundtrack for Creed II. His Tha Carter V track “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar was named one of our favorite songs of the year.
