This is an archived blog from when I ran Conscious Public Relations Inc. from 2008-2018. Excuse the potential outdated-ness!
An overview of some social media developments
1. Video replies on Twitter mobile – Thanks to Wendy McLelland who shared a great video by Gary Vaynerchuk, I learned that the Twitter app allows you to tweet video replies. This is a great alternative to Meerkat and Periscope which require you to use a new app to livestream.
2. Facebook rolling out Moments – Another Facebook-related app, Moments, allows you to share photos with Facebook friends without making them public. Learn more here.
3. Expect more ads on Instagram – Have you seen ’em? I’m getting them. I’d like to know what the rates are, if any local companies have purchased sponsored posts on Instagram, and what your results have been.
4. #sayhitoastranger launches a new crowdfunding campaign – Not really a tip, but this offline-online campaign that we are super proud to sponsor is rolling out a new campaign for support for the upcoming campaign in Vancouver August 21-23. Check out the video by Wakefield Productions below, and click to donate.
