New Event.
Introducing Facebook Events! A new way to help manage social lives; Facebook has decided to give its Events feature its very own app.

Snapchat

Milleni-whos?
You’d be forgiven for assuming the Snapchat user-base may be brimming with Millenials and iGens… but the platform has recently discovered something quite interesting about its UK users.

Periscope

Lights, Camera, Stream!
Periscope is helping boost the reach of live video on Twitter by extending its offerings to professional broadcasters. Periscope Producer can be connected to professional camera set ups and more!

Pinners-A-Plenty!
Pinterest reveals the platform has recently reached 150 million monthly active users! That’s 50% growth since last year!

Social Winners

Good Customer Service.
A good service rep is there for customers, day or night. A great service rep supports a customer’s drunken cheesy chip decisions.

Social Losers

Flatlining Ads.
Ad packages on Twitter during the NFL games may have come with a hefty price tag, but viewing habits left results a little underwhelming.

Creative spot of the week

Unsick Days.
An interesting (and attractive) creative campaign reminds American workers to not skip their routine checks.
