Social Media Podcast 56 - Instagram prunes the Vine whilst Facebook try harder to harvest dollars

The team is back for Social Media Podcast No.56. fatBuzz team members, Gordon White, Derek Howie, Joanna Robb, Jon Mills and Graeme Geddes chat about a variety of social media and web design issues.

One or two things stand out in this podcast like the ever increasing calls to action that appear on your Facebook pages and how Instagram's new video functionality could be to the expense of Vine.  And, what actually happens to those Snapchat posts?

It's the usual light hearted banter as we explore a whole host of topics from the ever changing world of social media and design.  Among the topics are:

  • The J C Penney Tea Kettle that caused a strom and how it would only have been a strom in a teacup just a few short years ago! Read the Guardian article
  • Instagram's 100 million users get video functionality
  • The fatBuzz Instagram account - we may capture our golfing clients
  • Mich Joel's latest and brilliant book - Ctrl+Alt+Delete
  • Wimbeldon serve up a feast of social media activity
  • Facebook's 'Buy Tickets' link
  • Facebook Hashtags - Are they a good or bad addition?
  • Twitter Mirror - we reflect on it's potential uses
  • Google Glass - we take a closer look
  • Mo Farah - in trouble at Wimbledon for his video footage - what does this mean for Instagram and Vine users? Read The Guardian article
  • Snapchat - Is there a delete button on the internet?
  • Facebook 'calls to action' (sales messages) are they too monetized?
  • Snapkids - Good, bad or ugly
  • The new Personal page layout on Facebook - have you got it and is the search facility as bad as we say?
  • Responsive design - the new standard for web design and why it's so important to consider it in the future
  • The latest responsive design web site from fatBuzz - Punk Royal
  • Customer Service and Social Media - is this going to be the new driver for brand participation?
