During this segment, Luria shared an unofficial Facebook Live video update spotted in the wild; Facebook creates two different links for scheduled Live videos. The first URL links to the post about the upcoming Live video and the second URL links to the video itself once the video creator goes live.

NEW “Feature”! Scheduled Streams CHANGE… did Facebook just make a big mistake?!?
Posted by Live Streaming Pros on Wednesday, September 4, 2019
Google Begins Highlighting Key Moments From Videos in Search: Google announced an update on how it handles videos in search results. Instead of just listing relevant videos on the search results page, Google will now highlight the most relevant parts of longer videos, based on timestamps provided by the video creators. TechCrunch notes that this is especially useful for how-to videos or documentaries.

Creators interested in trying YouTube's new Key Moments feature can apply online. YouTube states that the program is currently limited to a small set of providers in order “to ensure coverage and a good user experience.”
YouTube's Testing a New Option to Display Users' Comment History in Channels: YouTube is testing a new feature called Profile Cards, which will list all of a user's recent comments on the channel. The new profile cards will appear when you click on a commenter's name in the comments.
