Published

on

Over the past year there was hardly a single post to her accounts on which several fans didn’t comment some variation of ‘Britney, are you okay?’

Yesterday, pop idol Britney Spears posted a video on her Instagram answering questions fans have asked, with one in particular finally being answered.

Singer and songwriter Britney Spears has never been a stranger to the public eye, especially since her documentary Framing Britney Spears aired on Feb. 5. However, with all she’s been through over the last year, fans have wondered whether or not the singer is okay – especially when she posted things on social media that fans found cryptic and concerning. There was hardly a video or image posted on which several fans didn’t comment some variation of, “Britney, are you okay?”

Spears confirmed on her Instagram that she is, indeed, okay! The singer posted a video on Apr. 16 to answer multiple questions that her fans had for her on social media.

After confirming that she’s doing fine, she went on to say, “I’m extremely happy! I have a beautiful home, beautiful children… I’m taking a break right now because I’m enjoying myself.”

Earlier this month, the singer’s former makeup artist, Billy Brasfield, accused her of not writing her own Instagram captions. After this, Spears confirmed with TMZ that she does indeed write them. When asked whether or not she still speaks with Brasfield, she stated, “No, I’m not talking to him at all. I write my posts. I’m not sure who he is talking to, but I am not talking to Billy B.”

Although the majority of her fans believe her, some on Twitter still didn’t seem convinced it was an honest answer. However, they are still glad that she responded at all.

Britney Spears answered the question “are you okay?” on her Instagram yesterday and I’m just still thinking we should mobilize the national guard to free her because the answer was not sufficient

The recently released documentary Framing Britney Spears went in-depth into Spears’s personal life. It included discussions of her childhood, family and romantic relationships, and her famous 2007 breakdown, in which she shaved her head, got a tattoo, and hit a paparazzi vehicle with an umbrella, among other things.

Relationships with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake and ex-husband Kevin Federline were heavily discussed, due to publicity of Spears and Timberlake’s relationship and the custody battle between Spears and Federline. After the premiere of the documentary, fans called upon Timberlake, insisting that he apologize for the way he behaved once the relationship ended.

Timberlake has since apologized, and he and Spears remain on good terms.

Other than discussing her breakdown and relationships, Framing Britney Spears discussed the fight for her freedom against conservatorship put on her by her father, James Spears. After the release, the conservatorship publicity increased, and the #FreeBritney Twitter campaign began to blow up social media.

After the release, fans grew in concern for Spears due to her reaction towards the documentary. One month after its premiere, the artist wrote in an Instagram video caption, “I was embarrassed by the light they put me in… I cried for two weeks and well…. I still cry sometimes!!!!”

The legal battle has been continuing, with Spears’ lawyer filing a petition to permanently replace her father with her care manager, Jodi Montgomery. That hearing is set to take place on Apr. 27.

Spears is continuing to be active on social media, mainly through Instagram and Twitter. She has received a lot of support from her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, as well as from Miley Cyrus, Dua Lipa, and Kacey Musgraves.

Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …

Published

instagram-is-rolling-out-reels-replies,-and-will-be-testing-a-new-feature-which-informs-…

Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.

Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.

Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.

Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.

Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.

Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.

Now, the active status will only appear when you are both active at the same time.#Instagram #instgramnewfeature@MattNavarra @instagram @alex193a pic.twitter.com/2chGZP9hr4
