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! 

  • Because cats rule the Internet, I’m going to spend the next few weeks plugging the 3rd Annual Edmonton International Cat Festival! It takes place Saturday, May 28, and is the only event of its kind in Canada, donating 100% of proceeds to local cat rescues (this year donations will support the Edmonton Humane Society, Little Cats Lost, and Zoe’s Animal Rescue!) Pre-purr-chase your tickets here! (At the door, it’s $20 per person – kids 12 and under are free).
  • Periscope is adding its biggest missing feature which could improve its usage among brands and social media stars: the ability to save and reply your broadcasts. I personally never liked Periscope because I felt not being able to save longer-form video streams was such a waste.
