A 'novel' experience for Facebook Messenger
Text100 India’s National Digital Lead, Shahnaz K Jain, takes us on a tour of her 5 favourite things to do online. Over to her!
New Tweetstorm app
If you’re anything like me, 140 characters just doesn’t cut it when you’ve e-shopped your credit card into the ground, nothing fits and returns/ exchanges take forever! Say it with me… there’s an app for that! Stormcrow allows you to type out your message and then breaks it up automatically and in the correct order so you can shoot out a long but coherent rant! The downside; it’s only available on iOS and is paid. Luckily, the concept isn’t new and you can download Storm it on Android for free!
Winter is coming
That’s right… in the middle of July 2017, when Game of Thrones Season 7 airs, winter will come to Facebook and Twitter. These places will become graveyards of inactivity, because like me, millions of people will abstain from social media in order to avoid the inevitable fall out i.e. spoilers. As it happens, Twitter recently launched a way for its users to mute individual words and even emoji! While you could already block individual profiles before, this new feature will make it easy to keep anything offensive (even GoT spoilers) at bay!
Mute words, phrases, hashtags & more for a specific time period in your timeline & notifications. On Web & Android.
I feel like my life was missing meaning before I discovered Radio Garden. No matter where you are in the world, as long as you have a half way decent internet connection, you can listen to over 8000 radio stations from across the world. With a super easy interface, this web app allows you to navigate the globe by clicking on the lit up dots that magically transport you into another country. We’ve come a long way from the days of the transistor… and yes, I’m old enough to know that word!
Trump with love
If you haven’t seen this one already, now is as good a time as any. In a time of uncertainty and a fair bit of negativity, Trump With Love is a gem! It takes Donald Trump’s words and turns them into messages of love and positivity. While it has no utility in the real world, it does manage to put a smile on your face on a dull day.
The ultimate list of content marketing blogs
And of course, like I’ve said before, what’s a good curation without a good curation! Check out Curata’s ultimate list of content marketing blogs! I’m a huge fan of Jeff Bullas, Social Media Examiner and Hubspot, myself!
That’s all for now – hope you enjoyed my picks!
