Facebook’s plan worked: Snapchat hits 166 million users, 34 million fewer than Instagram Stories

Today Snap revealed that it now has 166 million daily users, 34 million fewer than Facebook’s Snapchat clone, Instagram Stories.

Let’s recap how this happened: Facebook launched Instagram Stories in August 2016, a completely transparent effort to rip off the formula that made Snapchat a success (and slow down Snapchat’s growth in the process). Facebook’s attempts to copy Snapchat usually fail — Poke, Slingshot, etc. — but Instagram Stories took off.

Investors were sweating over Snap’s growth last month, after Facebook said Instagram Stories…

Tiffany & Co. Has A Powerful Message For Donald Trump

Within the next few days, President Trump may make a decision about whether or not to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, a 2015 climate deal brokered between 195 nations to cut greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. But before Trump comes to a conclusion, Tiffany & Co has an important message for him.

The jewelry company blasted out a statement for Trump on Tuesday, by way of its Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as an ad in the New York Times.

“Dear President Trump, we’re still in for bold climate action,” the message reads. “Please keep the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement. The disaster of climate change is too real, and the threat to our planet and to our children is too great.”

The message has over 19,000 likes on Facebook and 69,000 likes on Instagram. The reaction to the statement has been mostly positive:

“Well done Tiffany & Co. Speaking up for the benefit of the world,” one commenter wrote on the company’s Facebook post. “I think many customers world…

For any artist to succeed in this highly competitive world, he needs to pay as much attention to promoting his art as its generation. Today, art is accessible to everyone. Because it is so common and accessible, you need to maintain and promote the quality of your work both online and offline if you want to gain an edge.

Instagram is quite a great platform for artists as it fundamentally concentrates on sharing images, paintings, and art masterpieces. It enables artists to demonstrate their painting process and even to sell their unique paintings along the way.

As per Vogue, artists sell their paintings on a regular basis today thanks to their Instagram feed. The platform allows incredible and somewhat unprecedented accessibility to all its users across the world.

If you want to take the same path, here are some secret tips for artists to gain Instagram success.

Make It A Fascinating And Interesting Experience

Desktop Users Can Now Upload To Instagram Without The App – Here’s How

Can We Pop The Silicon Valley Bubble?

A recent update to Instagram’s website has just enabled a feature which users of iPads and desktop PCs everywhere have been crying out for since the start. You can now upload images directly from a browser without the need to use the Instagram app and it’s trivially easy for Chrome users.

You can now upload photos to Instagram using Chrome

Now if you want to upload images directly from a PC, a Mac or even a Chromebook, you can do so without having to first transfer the pictures to your phone. It’s also great news for iPad users who, until now, have had to use an ill-fitting iPhone version of the app to access the service from their devices.

Recently added support for photo uploads from mobile browsers makes Instagram accessible to more users worldwide by removing the reliance on expensive mobile devices and app downloads where mobile data may not be cheaply available.

However, there are still several features missing from the mobile browser-based interface, such as live video, stories and the ability to apply filters, all of which are highly popular Instagram features.

Furthermore, Instagram isn’t fully embracing the idea of uploading from the desktop just yet, as it’s only the mobile version of the website which currently supports image uploading. Using Instagram from a normal desktop browser won’t provide any image upload capability unless you do a little trick first.

If you want to upload from a desktop browser, you’ll have to manually select…

How to Report a Post on Instagram

Instagram has pretty clear terms of service: no harassment, nudity, violence, copyright violation, hate speech, and so on. If it’s something that’s too offensive, Instagram doesn’t want it on their service.

Obviously they can’t police every post, so Instagram relies on users to report any posts that violate their guidelines. If a post gets reported, it gets reviewed by Instagram’s community review team. If they agree that it’s inappropriate, the post will be removed and the account might get banned especially after repeated infringements.

First, find the post that you’ve got an issue with. I’m just using this post as an example. Click the three little dots…
