September 10th Internet Slowdown organizing materials!



September 10th is the day we take our fight for net neutrality to the next level.

In this post are a bunch of resources for companies, organizations, people, and cats to use to promote the #InternetSlowdown. If you’ve told us you’re joining the slowdown, great! Now tell the world…

All of the innovation on the Internet have relied on bandwidth. Improve the net, don’t throttle it.

Introducing Hyperlapse from Instagram

Since launching nearly four years ago, it has always been a priority to bring the Instagram community simple yet powerful tools that let people capture moments and express their creativity. Today, we’re excited to announce Hyperlapse from Instagram, a new app to capture high-quality time lapse videos even while in motion.

Traditionally, time lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse from Instagram features built-in stabilization technology that lets you create moving, handheld time lapses that result in a cinematic look, quality and feel—a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment.

We designed Hyperlapse to be as simple as possible. You don’t need an account to create a hyperlapse. Instead, you open up straight to the camera. Tap once to begin recording and tap again to stop. Choose a playback speed that you like between 1x-12x and tap the green check mark to save it to your camera roll. You can share your video on Instagram easily from there.

From documenting your whole commute in seconds or the preparation of your dinner from start to finish to capturing an entire sunset as it unfolds, we’re thrilled about the creative possibilities Hyperlapse unlocks. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create.

To learn more about what stabilization looks like in Hyperlapse, check out this video.

Facebook Mentions Versus Facebook Pages Apps


I want to talk and compare an app that most of you don’t have access to: Facebook Mentions and compare it to the Pages App that anyone who has a Facebook page can download and use.

I found out about Facebook Mentions from a banner ad that was at the top of my Facebook account earlier this week…

This is a good example of using social media to showcase products. 

Good pic, includes price, and discoverable hashtags. Lacks conversion, product link or contact info. Maybe a promotion for mentioning Tumblr at the store?

A memo from 20 years ago, today.

Key quote: “The internet is a collection of computer networks that is connected around the world…A code of ‘netiquette’ exists among users and within user groups, but otherwise, you pay your money, find your niche and take your chances.”

Facebook CPC - Don't Waste Your Money


Two years ago, Limited Run posted (in a post that seems to be down now, but covered by TechCrunch here) that they believed 80% of the traffic Facebook sent from pay per click ads were bots. The resolution seemed to be that Facebook would investigate and fix any problems.

Veritasium also

We keep telling clients this and hopefully it sinks in soon.
