Visual Communication And The Power Of Digital Word Of Mouth

Visual Communication And The Power Of Digital Word Of Mouth

For many this new feature would seem irrelevant. For those of us who are closely following the moves of the platform confirms the interest of Instagram and Facebook to boost the use of the new visual language by providing more tools to color its “grammar”.
