Social Media Notes

Here’s this week’s round-up of social media (& tech) news. Come by each week for what I hope to be a fun & informative blog post on social stories that caught my eye throughout the week! 

Note: I missed last week (Sept. 21-27) so this round-up may include some older news from that week as well!

  • Speaking of Snapchat – since releasing their pretty weird new filters, it looks like they’re rolling out new filters each day. Pretty clever strategy to get users excited about using Snapchat each day. Now it looks like Snapchat will be rolling out sponsored filters – filters that will likely promote TV shows or movies that you can use with your snaps.
  • Results from a new CNN study – the first large scale study to look at kids/teens and why social media matters so much to them – have been released. Some of the findings: Teens are so anxious and constantly checking their phones because 61% of them want to see if their posts are getting likes and comments, 36% want to see if friends are doing things without them, and 21% said they want to make sure no one was saying mean things about them. Some are checking social media more than 100 times a day. The results are being worked into a whole documentary (led by Anderson Cooper).
