Facebook is retiring Moments, but you can still save your photos

Friday, January 25th, 2019

Back in 2015, Facebook wanted to simplify picture sharing by launching Moments, its own Google Photos rival. The concept was simple: you would upload files from your gallery to privately share them with friends, keeping them separate from your Facebook albums. Despite 50 million downloads on the Play Store alone, the social media giant has decided to kill its app and is urging users to save their photos.

Facebook has updated the app's changelog as well as started emailing users and displaying notifications in the app to warn of its upcoming death.

Twitter Moments revert from vertical layout to card-like interface

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Most of the changes lack firm release dates, rolling out "in the coming weeks" and months.

Moments will soon scroll vertically instead of horizontally to match the Twitter timeline — Twitter said that in its tests, a vertical layout led to more user engagement.

Twitter Moments are now vertically-scrolling lists

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Back in 2015, Twitter revealed 'Moments,' which are compilations of tweets about a certain topic (usually news-related). After opening one, every tweet would be displayed full-screen, sometimes with an image or video taking up most of the screen.

  

Twitter has quietly changed this behavior, and now Moments are basically just lists. They still have large opening pages, but you now scroll down instead of swiping left to see the tweets.
