#BUZZ: Using Snapchat as a marketing tool

Using Snapchat as a marketing tool goes against everything you’ve learned about marketing from the dawn of time, which is creating repetition and staying in front of a potential customer as long as possible. On Snapchat, you only have a limited amount of time for your target audience to see your promotion before it disappears forever.

Coming Soon: Twitter’s New Profile Layout

Moment by moment, your Twitter profile shows the world who you are. Starting today, it will be even easier (and, we think, more fun) to express yourself through a new and improved web profile.

If you don’t have the new layout yet, at some point in the next few weeks, you will likely log in to your Twitter account to find that your profile page has been replaced with the new page design. So, here’s what you need to know about the new layout so your profile looks top-notch when the time comes.

What You Should Know About the New Twitter Profile Layout

Here’s an example of what the new layout will look like — you’ll quickly notice how dramatically the layout of the profile page has changed:

new-twitter

Profile Header Photo

The header photos on the new Twitter profile pages are no longer located behind the profile picture as they were previously. Now, the header photo is located at the top of the page and stretches across the entire length of the screen at 1500×500 pixels. To add a header image, you can either upload a custom image or you can select a pre-loaded theme from Twitter’s collection in the design tab on the settings page.

Profile Picture

The profile picture, now 400×400 pixels, is also much larger on the new profiles. In addition, it will no longer be located in the middle of the page. Instead, on the new profiles, your profile pic will be positioned toward the top left of the page, overlapping slightly with the bottom left corner of the header image.

Do not fear — your current profile picture and header image with be automatically resized to fit the larger dimensions on the layout. But that doesn’t mean you can’t put some thought into two images that would work well together considering the new layout and dimensions, much like you would with your Facebook Page’s images.

Additional Layout Changes

There are a number of additional changes to the general layout of the profile pages, as well. Here are some notable ones that probably won’t affect how you design your profile, but are good to know in case you get confused about where things are located:

  • The name, handle, bio, and pictures are all now positioned on the left-hand side of the page, directly below the profile picture.
  • The “Who to Follow” and “Trends” modules can be found at the opposite side of the page.
  • The tabs that display tweets, following and, followers are to the right of the profile picture and directly below the header image.
  • There are now also additional tabs for Favorites, photos/videos, and lists included inline with the standard tabs.

On the new profile pages, your tweets — you know, the actual content — take up the majority of the page. They are listed vertically, by date, and you can scroll through them as you would a news feed. Another (more minor) difference is when you follow new people, that information is included among your list of tweets.

Finally, if you select one of the other tabs under your header image — such as “Followers” or “Following,” that information is presented to you in an entirely new way. Rather than a scrollable list, you get a Pinterest-like board of your followers or those you follow listed in boxes both vertically and horizontally across the screen.

Customizing How Tweets Appear

  • Best Tweets: Tweets that have received more engagement will appear slightly larger, so your best content is easy to find.
  • Pinned Tweet: Pin one of your Tweets to the top of your page, so it’s easy for your followers to see what you’re all about.
  • Filtered Tweets: Now you can choose which timeline to view when checking out other profiles. Select from these options: Tweets, Tweets with photos/videos, or Tweets and replies.

Coming soon to everyone
This new profile setup is available today to a small group of users.

BUZZ: Instagram Launches Video and Photos Embeds [Quick Tip]

Instagram launches web embedding for Instagram content to bring you an easy way to add Instagram photos and videos to the stories you want to tell.

Now, when you visit an Instagram photo or video page on your desktop web browser, you’ll see a new share button on the right side of your photo (just under the comments button). Click the button to see the embed code. Copy the block of text it gives you and paste it into your blog, website or article. When you hit publish, the photo or video will appear.

As always, you own your photos and videos, and they want to make sure that’s understood no matter where your content appears. Whether you want to embed your video on your blog or a friend wants to feature your photo on a website, everyone will clearly see that your content belongs to you. Your embedded photo or video appears with your Instagram username, and clicking on the Instagram logo will take people to your page on Instagram.com where they can discover more of your photos and videos.

Is your content private? Then nothing has changed. Embed code is only available to those whose photos and videos are public.

How to Embed Instagram Photos and Videos

The process is really intuitive and easy, but here are the step-by-step instructions to embed Instagram posts on your website or blog.

Step 1: Open up the photo or video you would like to embed and click the arrow on the top right corner.

Step 2: Click ‘Copy Embed Code.’

Step 3: Paste it into your site’s HTML code and prosper!

One thing to keep in mind is that there isn’t an out-of-the-box sizing option — you’ll have to dive into the code to resize the embedded photo or video. Here’s what it looks like once it’s embedded:

BUZZ: Facebook launches photo comments for Business Page

Facebook also introduced the ability to comment with photos. Now, users will find a small, grey camera icon in the right-hand side of the commenting field. By clicking it, users can attach a photo and include accompanying text if they want.

Although this new feature is a small addition to the massive social network’s suite of features, it makes Facebook even more “meme-friendly,” since it will be so much easier to share photos with friends. Brands and marketers should try getting creative with photo replies as a way to engage with their fans — who knows, maybe these photo replies will help their content go viral!
