Instead of arguing over politics with uncle Larry, or pretending to listen to another story about aunt Erma’s cats, take a peek at some recent happenings in the digital world. We’ve set up a feast of social media news and related tidbits to tide you over during the holiday break. Maybe you’ll have time to spare while you camp out in front of Best Buy or hang out during halftime of one of the football games. Either way, Happy Thanksgiving from GroundFloor Media and CenterTable!

Instagram and Snapchat are both launching shopping options for the holiday season. Instagram rolled out a shopping list feature for saving products you see on your timeline, plus, businesses have the option to add a Shop tab to their profiles. Snapchat, in partnership with Shopify, is launching a channel in Discover called “Shop and Cop” that will feature time-sensitive deals.
