I love Social Media, I think that it affords us so many opportunities that we didn't have before.

Both technically and socially, the way it works intrigues me, not to mention how it can be used to engage customers and increase awareness. If you are looking for my thoughts and guides on Social Media, then you are in the right place!

If you like or don't like anything I say, please, let me know via one of my social channels - twitter is probably best for a speedy response. Unlike many, I love to know when I am wrong, because I can learn from it and be better moving forward!

How NOT to grow your Iinstagram following to 10k in a week!

I am really bored of watching videos on YouTube of people telling me how to grow my Instagram following by some insane amount in 30 days or something, what makes me even more annoyed is that a large amount of them basically tell you to repost content from other more successful accounts, usually going into how to rob them of their best content. If nothing else, this is SO low class, at worse I think it should be illegal.

How to Edit IGTV descriptions…

So, after my previous post about IGTV I have discovered how it is possible to edit descriptions on Instagram TV, allow me to show you how.

Social Animals looks interesting

Just caught wind of a documentary about social media that looks pretty decent, its called Social Animals and it appears to document both the pros and the cons of three young kids making their way on social media, it appears from the trailer to focus on Instagram. (more…)

Giphy Gone from Instagram?

I regularly do Instagram stories and I often like to add in a little bit of ‘jazz’ by popping a GIF into the mix, this is a relatively new feature that Instagram added to stories. Imagine my surprise when I went to add one to my most recent IG Story only to find that the ‘GIF’ sticker had vanished… strange! (more…)

Affinity Photo – Photoshop but perpetual/cheaper?

Hey, hope you are having a lovely day, its pretty grey here, but I most certainly could be worse! I thought that I would write a little about Affinity Photo, one of the two Affinity products that I have gotten hold of recently, the other being Affinity Designer – more to come on that too. (more…)
