“...we live such digitally switched-on, always-plugged-in lives, and yet we still also somehow feel disconnected from people. As human beings, we’re looking for true human connection, and I think that emotional storytelling can help bridge that gap. Brands and agencies have come to realize that this is a way to fill that void”

Gif-tastic. This is awesome.
 
Even if you’re a fan of animated gifs—say you were the first to email your friends the slow loris very slowly eating a rice ball (goo.gl/KDDX1)—you may not know that the origins of animation go as far back as 1879 and Eadweard Muybridge’s “zoopraxiscope” (see our doodle homage to Muybridge: goo.gl/PGQW3). Gifs have been around since 1987 and have become the de facto standard for short animations on the web, from pony glitter text (goo.gl/iZoEZ) to grumpy cat memes (goo.gl/bC9um).

Starting today, there’s an easier way to unearth those gems: when you do an image search, click on “Search tools” below the search box, then select “Animated” under the “Any type” dropdown box.

We’ve also added a second handy filter: if you’re after the perfect picture of Easter basket clipart (goo.gl/XutAa) but must have one with a transparent background, simply select “Transparent” under the “Any color” dropdown box.

"Twit­ter [is] often­time time-based: 'today,' 'tomorrow,' 'tonight,' et cetera. By con­trast, the lan­guage on Pin­ter­est is consumption-based: 'use,' 'look,' 'want,' and 'need'"

I'm really interested to see how paid media will be impacted.
 
Anyone want the scoop on Facebook's big launch Thursday? Looks like it's a Photos feed and more http://tcrn.ch/W3JNZA
