4. Hollywood joins March For Our Lives
Young Americans took a stand last weekend and made their voices heard. Plenty of people across the county rallied together to take a stand on Gun Laws and urged congress to create change. Hollywood was right there with them standing in solidarity with them. Kim and Kanye flew out to DC and even brought North West along, saying they hoped that was a day she would always remember. The cast of Parks & Rec had a mini reunion while marching as well. Meanwhile in LA, stars like Kendall Jenner, Willow Smith, and the HAIM sisters marched with fans amongst the streets.
5. Instagram Changing?
Looks like the team at Instagram have finally heard months of users complaints and are updating the algorithm. While they did not come out and say the feed will become chronological again, they did say they are making changes to update the algorithm to most likely put newer content at the top of you feed. Looks like we'll have to keep our eyes peeled for these new updates.
