    1. Instagram Giveaways are one of the coolest ways to engage with existing followers and attract newer ones to the page by involving them in certain contest or event. Coming across shout-outs on stories, shared posts and reposts are a common affair when on Instagram. Usually participating followers are given something as a reward or a freebie in exchange of likes, comments, follows or any pre-determined activity.  Such online events help increase followers, engagement rates and also generate proper leads that seldom become customer bases later.

    1. STEALING large bunches of lavender from a farmer’s field is not “cute”, it’s not a “memento”, it’s not “helping to put the place on the map” – it’s THEFT, following a spell of TRESPASS onto that owner’s land.

      An interesting look at "influencer morality".

    1. “We are a nation with a tradition of reining in monopolies, no matter how well-intentioned the leaders of these companies may be.”Mr. Hughes went on to describe the power held by Facebook and its leader Mr. Zuckerberg, his former college roommate, as “unprecedented.” He added, “It is time to break up Facebook.”

    1. I think the Stories format is a genuine innovation on the social modesty problem of social networks. That is, all but the most egregious showoffs feel squeamish about publishing too much to their followers. Stories, by putting the onus on the viewer to pull that content, allows everyone to publish away guilt-free, without regard for the craft that regular posts demand in the ever escalating game that is life publishing. In a world where algorithmic feeds break up your sequence of posts, Stories also allow gifted creators to create sequential narratives.
    2. Instagram, despite not having any official reshare option, allows near unlimited hashtag spamming, and that allows for more deterministic, self-generated distribution. Twitter also isn't as great for spreading visual memes because of its stubborn attachment to cropping photos to maintain a certain level of tweet density per phone screen.

      Some interesting UI clues here that either help or hamper social networks

    1. #rollatorliebe ist

      Warum das Hashtag "rollatorliebe" bzw. der entsprechende Stil der Fotografie wie er hier gezeigt wird zumindest aus der Position der fotografischen Ethik durchaus problematisch gesehen werden kann (Stichwort: "Recht am eigenen Bild") habe ich in einem an anderer Stelle in einem Blogbeitrag elaboriert: Das Problem #rollatorliebe. Über Fotografieethik, Straßenfotografie und Instagram.

    1. When Instagram found out that users missed out on 70% of the posts on their feed, they announced a new algorithm. An algorithm that promised to let you see the posts that you care about the most. But the workings of the algorithm remained a burning question until recently when the Facebook-owned company revealed how does the Instagram algorithm work. When the Instagram feed was tweaked from chronological to algorithmic, people anticipated a drop in engagement levels. However, people have now started seeing 90% of their feed since the algorithm was instituted. Read on to find out everything you need to know about the Instagram feed algorithm.

    1. Many will tease the possibility of going private, posting announcements in their page bios like, “Going private in the next 24 hours,” to entice people to follow while they can.

      This is painfully sad as it's not like the page doesn't want more followers and isn't going to approve each and every one of them...

    1. The Internet transmits data of all kinds: text, images, sounds, moving pictures, etc. The World Wide Web is a newly powerful word (or medium of symbolic representation, or language) that allows us to imagine and create newly powerful n-dimensional representations of the n-dimensional possibilities of “coining words” (making and realizing representations) together.

      From Twitter, to Instagram, to Soundcloud, to Vimeo this is extremely evident. Look at the connection between what is said in the article and the links provided. Twitter is full of rich text, images, sounds and motion pictures. It is a sort of melting pot of it all. Instagram as well. The singular options include Soundcloud for sound (of course) and Vimeo for "...moving pictures."
