Instagram users might be able to post from desktop soon

News coming in from Bloomberg suggests that the over eleven years old social media brand of the Facebook family, Instagram might allow its users to post from the web or desktop browser soon.

According to the report as highlighted by Mashable.com, Instagram has started testing this feature, allowing users to post photos and videos from their desktop browsers.

Christine Pai, Facebook spokeswoman confirmed the news to Bloomberg“We know that many people access Instagram from their computer. To improve that experience, we’re now testing the ability to create a Feed post on Instagram with their desktop browser.”

The current web app of Instagram has very limited functional tools – it allows you log in and check out other users’ posts and stories, as well as send messages, search for posts, and check their activity logs. But one cannot post unless you use the mobile app unlike the other social media platforms that allow same functions on both mobile and desktop.

The report gave no details on how the tested features look or how widely available it is. It wasn’t active for me when I tried it out. However, social media consultant Matt Navara, who first saw the feature, posted a couple of screenshots on his Twitter feed.

 

The reason behind not letting users post via desktop browser has to do with Instagram’s roots as a mobile app, which lets users share experiences as they happen. However, today Instagram is teeming with professionals which would probably like the option of working from their computer – not to mention regular users who would surely sometimes prefer being able to post to Instagram from their desktops.

Sugar Tone in very poor state

Renowned sound engineer Sugar Tone in very poor state; turns drunkard

Renowned Ghanaian Sound Engineer popularly known as Sugar Tone and born Gideon Darko  is currently in a very poor state with calls to musicians who have benefitted from his works to come to his aid.

A video of the hitherto vibrant sound maker who produced hits for top musicians in the country including Bandana (now Shatta Wale ) Moko Hoo album, Kumi Guitar’s 1 litre, Daasebre Gyamena’s Still I love you, Reggie Zippy for sale, Kofi B, Daddy Lumba, Ofori Amponsah among others, was found lying weak and struggling to sit up.

It is unclear what actually may have happened to Sugar Tone whose last media encounter was a threat to take musician, Nana Yaw Kumi to court for giving out the song to Mark Okraku when they had a contract about its release.

Sugar Tone owned Options Digital Studio sited at Osekua estate located in-between Santa Maria and the Anyaa market.

Sugar Tone’s love for music was wonderful and can be described as an inheritance because his father is Okyeame Bediako secretary to MUSIGA, Onyina his uncle and relates to Agya Koo Nimo from his mothers’ side.

Sugar Tone at a very tender age joined a lot of gospel bands where he played the drums, keyboard, guitar and actually played the entire musical instrument except the base guitar.

He was a student of Labone Secondary and later to Ghana Films where he studied how to arrange songs, mix, program and in all how to package music in an appealing way. He first did his attachment at Despite Studios where he studied under Mr. Ebenezer Agyekum who is currently in Canada. He proceeded to TNT studios at Tema after his attachment.

Sugar relocated himself at West Wise Digital Studio at Spintex Road where he worked on Bandana’s maiden album “Moko hoo”. He then moved to the giant in the engineering sector that is Zapp Mallet of TLC studio located at Mile Eleven (11) for some finishing touch to his carrier. Some where along the line he passed through Freddima studios at Nkrumah circle one of the oldest recording studios in the capital where most of the sound engineers started their training.

He established his own recording studio years later and the first artiste he recorded in his studio was Daasebre Dwamena and produced hit after hit for different artistes. He can boast of working with artiste like Tinny, Etuo Aboba (now Bullet of RuffTown records), King B, Absorber, Bandana, Reggie Zippy, Lucky Mensah, Sydney, Lenny Akpadi and the list is endless.

Angel Can’t Even Stop Corruption in Ghana – Kwesi Pratt agrees with Agyebeng

Angel Can’t Even Stop Corruption in Ghana – Kwesi Pratt agrees with Agyebeng

One of Ghana’s senior journalist Mr. Kwesi Pratt Junior has applauded the incoming Special Prosecutor Lawyer Kissi Agyebeng for his bold comment on corruption fight in Ghana during his parliamentary vetting on last Thursday, 22 July 2021.

In answering a question from the vetting committee on how he is going to fight the growing corruption in the country, Mr. Agyebeng responded saying;

“I can’t stop corruption…rather, I will make corruption costly in the country.”

“…at the end of the year, publicize the results as to which institution is performing well and which institution is not performing well. In that quest, if you are the Head of an institution and persistently your institution is drawing the short straw in terms of perception of corruption, from the point of view of experts, from the point of view of business people, you will sit up.”

In responding to this comment of Lawyer Agyebeng from the vetting, seasoned journalist Kwesi Pratt on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo morning show said;

”It’s true. Even if you appoint an Angel as Special Prosecutor, it’s not him alone who can eradicate corruption”. 

He further stressed on the need for all to support the new Special Prosecutor in fighting the corruption in the country.

‘We’re watching him. We will offer him any help and encouragement he requires but he, himself, should do his work effectively and in accordance with the law”, he added.

The Special Prosecutor’s position became vacant after Mr. Martin Amidu shockingly resigned from the office in the heat of December 2020 elections. This deemed it necessary for the President of the Republic who created the Special Prosecutor’s Office to appoint a new Prosecutor to man the office.

President Akufo-Addo upon the Attorney General’s advice nominated Lawyer Kissi Agyebeng to take over the Special Prosecutor’s job.

Mr. Kissi Agyebeng has successfully gone through the vetting process in parliament and has been approved by the parliamentary appointment committee.

He is therefore expected to be sworn into office by the President very soon.
