Social Media Notes

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

  • Looks like Facebook is working on a stand-alone camera app that would be similar to Snapchat. With Snapchat overtaking Instagram as the top app of choice for teens, and their awesome features and revenue generating models, I really think Facebook’s concerned and their imitation features are showing that too.
  • In Alberta, the number of sexually transmitted infections has skyrocketed and hook-up apps like Tinder and Grindr were being blamed. But association is very different from causation – some researchers argue, saying more work needs to be done before a direct link can be made.
