By |2017-02-08T01:18:24+01:00January 10th, 2016|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , |

Everyone has been talking about the fun new social media chat app Peach this weekend.  So of course I had to go and see what all the fuss was about. I was surprised with what I found: It's pink, it's peachy, it's cute and you guys love it. What is the Chat App Peach Peach was created by Dom Hofmann the creator of Vine, and launched on iOS on the 8th of January this year - so we know why the huge buzz now. Peach is different that your standard chat apps because of its funky fun features.  You can just text as you would normally and you can @ people so that they get a notification as you would on Twitter. I'd like to say what the Peach chat app is the same as or similar too but although it has similarities to many things it's different  - it's similar to Whatsapp maybe - but has some features of Telegram - or Facebook or maybe Twitter, no I can't put my finger on it, you'll just have to try it.

Enhance Your Twitter Presence With Twitter Conversational Ads

By |2017-02-08T01:18:24+01:00January 10th, 2016|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: |

This week Twitter introduced conversational ads so that advertisers can drive more earned media and create more brand influence.  It takes the standard promoted tweets that little bit further. It seems there could be many changes at Twitter over the following months, which much controversy about the new Twitter10k where Twitter are talking about changing the 140 character limit to 10,000 - it sounds totally crazy that we would see all of those words in our feeds, so we believe that this will just be like Twitlonger, where you have to click a link to see the rest of the tweet, we've always found these pretty annoying but at least it won't change what we see in our timeline, anyway - that's another story. What are Twitter Conversational Ads The new ads from Twitter contain a call to action button with customisable hashtags to encourage conversation and engagement on the ads.   The call to action button opens a brand message when clicked and the user can then add their own message to the tweet and share it with their followers   [...]

How to Blog with Medium

By |2017-02-08T01:18:24+01:00January 9th, 2016|Categories: Tips for Bloggers|Tags: , |

There are many ways you can set up a blog, but first we are going to talk about how to blog with Medium.  Medium was co-founded by Ev Williams of Twitter fame and launched in Beta in August 2012 and has turned out to be very popular with a wide range of different writers. What is Medium There has been some contention over the years as what Medium actually is because it's very different from anything we have used before.  It's not really a magazine, or a discovery site like Scredible its not even a media site or a blog website like WordPress but it is a blogging platform of sorts.  In a very far-fetched way, I might liken it to Tumblr, with the same sort of themes but Tumblr as a microblogging platform has mostly gone visual now, whereas Medium is for words, you can add some images but it's mainly for reading and writing.  For bloggers, writers, journalists or anyone that wants to use it to tell their story, or have something useful to share.  Medium, however, encourages quality over [...]

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg to build own AI

By |2017-02-08T01:18:24+01:00January 4th, 2016|Categories: Social Media|Tags: |

There has been a lot of predictions recently about how 2016 is going to be huge for AI (Artifical Intelligence) and VR (Virtual Reality) So the announcement that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is going to build his own AI (Similar to Jarvis in Iron Man) as his own personal challenge this year shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Mark announced on his Facebook profile page that every year he sets himself a challenge and every challenge has a theme, this year's challenge is invention.  And that is to build himself a simple AI to run his home and help him with his work.  Slightly different from a previous year's challenge which was to read 2 books a month or one that was to meet a new person everyday. Mark said that his A.I is going to be like Jarvis in Iron Man.  Jarvis stands for Just A Rather Very Intelligent System and is a highly advancedcomputerised A.I which was developed by Tony Stark (Marvel) to control everything in Tony's house, which is basically what Mark said he wants. I'm going to [...]
