Tiger Woods on crutches in first Instagram photo of himself since his car accident

Published

(CNN)Tiger Woods has posted his first photo of himself since his car accident earlier this year, showing him on a golf course in crutches with his dog.

Woods posted the photo to his verified Instagram account on Friday, writing, “My course is coming along faster than I am. But it’s nice to have a faithful rehab partner, man’s best friend.”

Though Woods has posted on social media since the accident on February 23, this is the first photo the golfer has uploaded of himself.

      Woods, 45, suffered serious leg injuries after his Genesis SUV hit a “Welcome to Rolling Hills Estates” sign, crossed a center divider and traveled more than 150 feet across the shoulder of the road before coming to a stop on the driver’s side, according to a Los Angeles County affidavit for a search warrant of the vehicle’s black box recorder.

        Earlier this month, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the main causes of the crash were speed and Woods’ inability to negotiate a curve.

            His injuries included open fractures to his tibia and fibula that required a rod to be inserted, and additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle that were stabilized with screws and pins.

            The 15-time major winner spent several weeks in the hospital following the incident, but is currently recovering at home while doing rehab.

            CNN’s Ben Church contributed to this report.

            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

            Social networking websites launch features to encourage users to get boosters

            Facebook Instagram and TikTok are launching new features to encourage people to get their coronavirus booster jabs.

            From Friday, users will be able to update their profiles with frames or stickers to show that they have had their top-up jab or aim to when they become eligible.

            It follows on from people previously being able to show they have had their first and second jabs on certain social networking websites and apps.

            TikTok also held a “grab a jab” event in London earlier this year.

            I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones

            More than 16 million booster vaccines have now been given across the UK.

            People who are aged 40 and above and received their second dose of their vaccine at least six months ago are currently eligible to have their booster.

            A new campaign advert is also being launched on Friday, which shows how Covid-19 can build up in enclosed spaces and how to prevent that from happening.

            Vaccines minister Maggie Throup said:  “Getting your booster is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family this winter.

            “It is fantastic to see some of the biggest household names further back the phenomenal vaccine rollout, allowing their users to proudly display that they have played their part in helping us build a wall of defence across the country.

            “I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top-up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones.”
