Social Media Training Pt. 2 (Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat, Whatsapp)

Instagram is…

…growing quickly. It took Flickr 2 years to get to 100 million photo uploads. It took Instagram 8 months.

…the hardest network to grow on.


…not a place to push hard!

The big questions:

1. Is it artsy/indie enough?
2. Does the context fit?

The tools:

Bokeful (out of focus…it’s cool).

Overgram (type over pics)

Picframe (combine multiple pics)

Cross Process (polaroid effect, basically)

Everlapse (make a video of photos)

How to manage two accounts on your iPhone (there are several apps for this).

Tumblr is…


…a middle point between Instagram, twitter and blogging.

…a “media network” rather than a social network.

what works? Black & white, GIFs.

Who’s killing it:


Jimmy Fallon

How to create GIFs:

Buzfeed has several good options (FYI…does contain some profanity).

Snapchat is..

…dissapearing messages.

…for being funny.

…a great way to make an announcement/ask.

WhatsApp is…

…the end of texting.

Whisper & Secret are…

…the beginning of something terrible.

Vine is…

…a short story.
