Instagram has consistently tried to improve its platform and add new features and tools to its stories. Earlier this week, rumours circulated that Instagram’s working on new ‘Nametag’ scannable codes to connect users to profiles, while the platform also officially released its “Focus Portrait” mode for selfies and videos just a week ago. Now, WABetaInfo reports that Instagram is also developing a new Q and A sticker option for Stories, which would allow users of the platform to pose a question within the Stories flow, but the response to that query would be private. As is visible above, the new Q and A sticker would be another option in your Stories tools and differs from the existing Poll stickers, in that the responses wouldn’t necessarily have to be multiple choice, while the results, as noted, would be sent privately. The option could be great for brands seeking rapport on new products, or ways they can…

It is something we often all wonder and sometimes fear when it comes to our personal data, images, conversations and much more on the social media giants’ platform, which we all use daily for a variety of reasons. To get an idea of the data Facebook collects about you, you can literally just..ask for it. You will receive a file with every photo and comment you’ve ever posted, all the ads you’ve clicked on, stuff you’ve liked and searched for and everyone you’ve friended – and unfriended – over the past years of having an active account. This enormous amalgamate of data is primarily used to decipher which ads are best suitable to be shown to you as a user and consumer. It also makes using Facebook more seamless and enjoyable – say, by determining which posts to emphasize in your feed, or reminding you of friends’ celebrations or birthdays. Facebook…

It has been a common tactic for marketing companies – and not only – alike to simple schedule their tweets, post them several times on many different profiles and also retweet them across their managed networks in a form of cross-posting. Well, Twitter is having none of that any longer. Twitter’s spam bot issue isn’t new, but it came to a head when it was revealed a few months ago that thousands of Russian accounts (also known as troll accounts) used the platform to influence the 2016 Presidential elections in the United States of America. Now, the company has announced new developer guidelines and a set of rigorous changes designed to prohibit automated actions and to make it harder for “tweetdeckers” to flood the social network. Starting on March 23rd, 2018, apps will need to be able to prevent bulk tweeting or face “enforcement action, up to and including the suspension of…

Instagram is no longer just photos of your best friend’s coffee cup and muffin on a Tuesday afternoon. It’s a powerful and impressive way to market your business to thousands of people. Here are 5 ways to do that and make sure you’re not wasting any money or time! 1. Advertising If you have the budget, Instagram will strategically place your products in front of thousands of people scrolling down their Instagram feeds. Free Ads and print advertisements are no longer the best way to advertise your business. If you’re wanting your product to reach a specific audience, you can make sure it is only seen by people that are 18-30 year, or who have a similar interest in products like yours already. Remember to target your audience correctly – be specific. Pick the gender, ages and countries of your potential customers wisely. Don’t waste your budget! 2. Influencer Marketing Instagram…
