Instagram Stories viewing order breakdown - stalkers beware!

Part 2 of a 2 part Instagram series

Since it’s launch in 2010, Instagram has racked up a mammoth 800 million users, and out of those, 300 million of them actively use Instagram stories. For those who are unaware, the stories feature is essentially a tool enabling Instagram users to post temporary photos and video clips (which disappear after 24 hours), providing followers with a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into their day-to-day lives.

Marketing on Snapchat- is it worth it?

Snapchat opened its doors to advertisers in 2016, with sponsored geo filters and shop-able augmented reality posts as a couple of examples. Prices for these advertising methods range from a humble $7 to an extravagant $500,000. However, with 191 million daily active users around the world, and 12 million of those users in the UK, you can start to understand why they can charge so much.

You Can’t Have Your Cake and Eat It: why we shouldn’t be so quick to judge Facebook amidst GDPR

Despite being universally used and loved, Facebook is coping a fair bit of stick right now. First Cambridge Analytica, now news of a fine on the launch day for GDPR. But I can’t help but feel this is a little bit harsh.

Facebook (and most social networks) provide us with a platform that many of us enjoy; being able to keep up with friends, find news stories and perhaps most importantly, notify the world we’ve been to the gym. And what do we pay for this? Nothing.
