From starring in classic sitcoms to hosting the reality crafting competition Making It, Amy Poehler is one of the busiest and most successful women in the entertainment industry. Although she began her career as a comedian, Amy has recently branched out into new terrain, the most unexpected of which is the Great British Baking Show-inspired Making It. From her early days at SNL to her innovative use of social media, here’s everything there is to know about Amy.

Amy was born in Newton, Massachusetts, on September 16, 1971. This means that Amy is a Virgo and will be turning 50 this fall. Amy’s parents Eileen and William Poehler were both schoolteachers. Amy’s mother Eileen was a feminist during the 1970s. Amy credits her mom for her rebellious nature. Amy graduated from high school in 1989 and went on to study media and communications at Boston College. While attending college, Amy joined her first improv comedy troupe. Amy’s experience in the comedy troupe inspired her to pursue comedy as her career after her graduation in 1993. Amy moved to Chicago to continue learning about improv comedy. While in Chicago, Amy joined comedy groups like Second City and became friends with other prominent comedians like the 30 Rock star, Tina Fey.

Amy’s career in comedy launched when she starred on Saturday Night Live in 2001. Amy was the second cast member and the first woman to be promoted from featured player to a full cast member in her debut season of the classic series. Amy is best known for her portrayal of Hillary Clinton and her time hosting Weekend Update. During her time at SNL, Amy was in a relationship with Arrested Development actor Will Arnett. The couple met at one of Amy’s comedy shows in 1996 but didn’t start dating until 2000. Amy and Will got married in August 2003. Amy and Will collaborated on projects such as Blades of Glory and Horton Hears a Who. Amy and Will also worked together while parenting their two sons, 12-year-old Archie and 10-year-old Abel. Amy and the Bojack Horseman actor announced their separation in 2012 and were divorce by April 2014.

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
