15 things you absolutely must know about social media

...or your face will melt off and get eaten by goats. Well, that's what she said. 

Sorry to disappoint you but there absolutely isn't anything new that you need to know right now. 

For instance, if you read ONE decent post on each of the social media platforms by any of the self proclaimed 'influencers', you are pretty much covered. All the other posts claiming to 'drive traffic, increase engagement, grow followers' are a load of (insert expletive).

Spend your time and effort on being social instead. 

One size doesn't fit all, especially in social media. i.e. what works for someone in the United States might not work for someone out here in Asia. So test, test and test some more until you've got it right. 

Why am I saying this now? We've had 20+ posts in the past two days alone on regurgitated content and it's not benefiting anyone. Please think if your post is going to help the community. If so, go ahead and share! 

That's all folks, enjoy the rest of your day.

Don't use “Instagram,” “IG”, “Insta” or “Gram” in your app name
Please take note of this if you're creating or already own an Instagram related app! I'm saying this because a friend of mine received a formal letter from Facebook asking her app & website to be taken down. 

You'll notice that a lot of popular apps like Statigram (now Iconosquare), Webstagram (switched to Websta) have already began re-branding.

FYI, Using Instagram Brand Assets:

Hello all! Does anyone have any app recommendations or tips for night-time photography?

This picture was taken with my iPhone 5s using the LongExpo app on a 2 second shutter.

Would love to receive some feedback!

If you've got 4 minutes to spare this lunchtime, watch this. This video is the epitome of great content -- emotional attachment, hook & a strong call to action at the end.
