I am a great believer that some people, sites, blogs and brands are better suited to a select few social media’s instead of all of them.
Personally I am chatty so Twitter suits me. I am also about the visual so Ello and Instagram suit me.
I have little to nothing to offer on Pinterest, G+ or Facebook. That said despite me never visiting G+ and rarely browsing Pinterest I still get clicks from both to my blog.
This has encouraged me to put up my social links and frequent the big 5 on a more personal basis and see if anything grows on any of the platforms.
You can find me on social media by clicking the little icons to the upper right of this post. – – >
Boomerang is a new feature similar to gif’s for Instagram. They are created using a new app called Instagram Boomerang available on the iOS store and Google Play. It is a simple one button app which takes a burst of photos then plays them back and forth like an animation.
There are some fantastic and creative uses for this to create awesome visual effects. There is also a lot of dogs getting Boomeranged. You can tell where my preference lies. 🙂
