WeChat Restricts Controversial Video Face-swapping App Zao For Security Risks
SEP

Zao went viral in China this weekend for its realistic face-swapping videos, but after controversy about its user policy, WeChat restricted access to the app on its messaging platform. Users can still upload videos they created with Zao to WeChat, but if they try to download the app or send an invite link to another WeChat user, a message is displayed that says “this web page has been reported multiple times and contains security risks. To maintain a safe online environment, access to this page has been blocked.” Developed by a unit of Momo, one of China’s most popular dating apps, Zao creates videos that replace the faces of celebrities in scenes from popular movies, shows and music videos with a selfie uploaded by the user.

Now Facebook Says It May Remove Like Counts
SEP
2
Facebook could soon start hiding the Like counter on News Feed posts to protect users’ from envy and dissuade them from self-censorship. Instagram is already testing this in 7 countries including Canada and Brazil, showing a post’s audience just a few names of mutual friends who’ve Liked it instead of the total number. The idea is to prevent users from destructively comparing themselves to others and possibly feeling inadequate if their posts don’t get as many Likes. It could also stop users from deleting posts they think aren’t getting enough Likes or not sharing in the first place. [MORE]

NYC College Campuses With Outstanding Architecture
AUG
30
New York City isn’t home to many traditional college campuses—those bastions of knowledge with stately buildings clustered around a rambling landscape that’s filled with students—but the colleges and universities of this city are home to plenty of beautiful buildings. Among the city’s many institutes of higher learning are a bevy of beautiful buildings designed by notable architects, both old (Stanford White, George B. Post) and more contemporary (Marcel Breuer, Diller Scofidio + Renfro). Here, we’ve rounded up 11 of our favorite; and best of all, you don’t have to be a student to get a peek at many of these buildings. [MORE]

You Can Now Share Music From Spotify To Facebook Stories
AUG

Spotify this morning announced a new way for you to share music with friends (or fans, if you’re an artist) — by way of a new Facebook Stories integration that includes 15-second song previews. Viewers can also optionally tap on the “Play on Spotify” button in the Story to be redirected to the Spotify app to hear more. The feature is designed largely with artists and their teams in mind, as it gives them another way to promote their new music across Facebook’s social network. Musicians and their managers often today use the Spotify app’s sharing feature to post their content across social media, including to Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, and elsewhere. [MORE]

YouTube Kids Launches On The Web
AUG
30
Kid-friendly YouTube content now has its own website, youtubekids.com. The website will offer a similar experience to the existing YouTube Kids mobile app, where parents will be able to direct their child to videos that are age-appropriate, as well as track their child’s watch history and flag content missed by YouTube’s filters. At launch, the site won’t offer a sign-in option, but that will roll out at a later date, the company says. The website’s imminent launch was quietly disclosed earlier this week by YouTube, and comes ahead of the official announcement of an FTC settlement which is said to include a multimillion-dollar penalty against the Google-owned video platform for its violations of U.S. children’s privacy laws, COPPA.

Skrillex Hits 'Midnight Hour' With Ty Dolla $ign And Boys Noize
AUG
29
For his first official single since 2017, Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) has linked with US rapper Ty Dolla $ign and his longtime production partner Boys Noize to create 'Midnight Hour'. The track is blending of sharp house and silky r'n'b, which is being hailed as "a departure for all involved." This isn't the first time that Skrillex and Boys Noize have linked this year. Back at the start of June, the pair revived their Dog Blood project for the first time since 2013 to release the new four-track EP 'Turn Off The Lights'. 'Midnight Hour' follows the amped-up r'n'b single 'Would You Ever (feat. Poo Bear)' in Skrillex’s discography and the producer has given his fans every reason to expect more new material before the end of the year. [MORE]

Kanye West's New Album 'Jesus Is King' Drops This September
AUG
29
Kim Kardashian has let the cat out of the bag after posting a photo of what appears to be her husband Kanye West's tracklist for his forthcoming album. Appearing with the title 'Jesus Is King', the photo of the tracklist - which is placed next to a bible - also shows a release date of September 27 at the bottom. This potential LP or project will follow the release of Kanye West's eighth studio album 'Ye' which dropped back in June of 2018. No official announcement about an album release has been made. The Christian elements that appear in both the title and photo of this supposed album announcement fit with the theme of West's year musically. The superstar's focus for most of 2019 has been centered around his choir and gospel performances called "Sunday Service" which he has toured around the country. He brought the service to Coachella and to Ohio to memorialize the victims of the recent mass shooting in Dayton. [MORE]

Manhattan's Iconic Paris Theater Closes After 71 Years
AUG
30
Thanks to an influx of glass-and-steel McCondos and the unrelenting rise of rent prices, few beacons of Old New York have managed to remain in this city. And even if they have, it seems their days are numbered. The latest icon forced to shutter is cinephile favorite, The Paris Theater. Tucked on a Midtown side street between Bergdorf's and The Plaza, the last single-screen cinema has been a glamorous go-to for movie premieres and artsy film aficionados for the past 71 years. When it opened back in 1948, Marlene Dietrich had the honor of cutting the ribbon. With 581 seats, and a balcony beloved by A-listers, The Paris boasted that certain type of accessible glamour that could only be found in such niche New York landmarks. An Upper East Side Grande Dame was just as comfortable here as a Lower East Side film student, or, indeed, a Hollywood starlet. Carrie Bradshaw herself once said of the place, "The most amazing thing about living in a city like New York, is that any night of the week you can go to Paris." [MORE]

New York's Best Beaches To Visit This Summer
AUG
28
The last days of summer are upon us, which means that beach season in New York City is officially winding down. The city's public beaches will close on September 8, so you have just a couple more weeks to make a beeline for Coney Island or the Rockaways (and you can hop on the NYC Ferry for a pleasant, if crowded, ride to the latter). Don't feel like dealing with the crowds? Head to Staten Island to check out some of NYC's more off-the-beaten path beaches. And if going for a swim isn't your thing, don't fret—most beaches come with plenty of other outdoor activities. [MORE]

These Insta-Worthy Watermelon Gelato Pops Come With A Coveted Skincare Must-Have
AUG
28
Close out the season of all-watermelon-everything with an Instagrammable two-for-one. To celebrate Labor Day Weekend, cult-favorite K-beauty brand Glow Recipe has teamed up with the frozen pop geniuses over at Popbar to offer skincare obsessives a seriously sweet treat. From August 30th to September 2nd, stop by Popbar's New York location at 5 Carmine Street for a limited edition Watermelon Wedge. The adorable dessert features watermelon gelato dipped in white chocolate, topped with green sprinkles and chocolate "seeds." It's definitely the perfect prop for a "last days of summer" OOTD. But that's not even the best part. Each purchase comes with a sample of Glow Recipe's coveted Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. The little pink jar of skin-soothing, radiance-boosting magic, formulated with watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and AHAs, has a notoriously long wait list, and pretty much sells out at Sephora immediately, so this is kind of a big deal. Do you need a better excuse to indulge your sweet tooth and your skin?! [MORE]
