Glittery bejeweled nails are actually tiny pens you can write with

TwitterFacebook

Why is it that the moment you need a pen, it’s nigh-on impossible to find one. 

Behold, an ingenious solution to your pen-hunting woes: pen nails. Or, in layman’s terms, false nails with tiny pens attached to them. 

Instagram nail artist @TonysNail is the genius behind the nail-art-meets-stationery-supplies. And, what a practical person you are, Tony. 

Pen nails are basically falsies adorned with lots of tiny gems with the added bonus of a pen nib and a spring mechanism. 

You will never lose your pen again 😂✒

Pete Souza’s latest Instagram lets Trump know who the real ‘Rocket Man’ is

TwitterFacebook

If Pete Souza keeps it up with his Instagram responses to President Trump, we’re going to start thinking he doesn’t like the guy!

On the morning of Sept. 17, Trump referred to Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man” in a tweet (shortly before retweeting a video in which he hits Hillary Clinton with a golf ball — it’s been a big day for the president). While the taunting nickname is bizarre in the context of things American presidents have said throughout the nation’s history, it’s just another Sunday morning for Trump.

A former Instagram exec wants you to download *another* app

TwitterFacebook

Apps, there are too many. 

James Quarles would know. The 41-year-old watched Snapchat rise to popularity as he ran Instagram’s business from 2014 to 2017. And yet, he decided to leave his job at Facebook earlier this year and move to Strava in the hopes of growing a new social network. 

Unlike Instagram, Strava (the Swedish word for “strive”) is not all about sharing photos of beaches and selfies—though that is encouraged as well. Strava is a fitness app that lets users record activities, compare individual performances, and connect with friends and the larger community. Strava has tens of millions of registered users who share 9.9 million activities every week.  Read more…

Get ready to see way more vertical ads on Facebook

TwitterFacebook

Prepare to see more Instagram stories turning up as ads on your Facebook feed.

The social network is introducing a new tool that will let brands turn their Instagram stories into carousel-like Facebook “canvas” ads and vice-versa.

That means that Facebook advertisers will have access to the stickers, filters, and drawing tools that make for less polished ads that better blend in with user posts. 

It also allows them to simply repurpose their Facebook ads for Instagram without tailoring them to the platform. Read more…

Scandal prompts FTC to crack down on social media influencers

TwitterFacebook

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) settled charges against individual social media influencers for the first time Thursday, setting a new precedent: influencers need to unambiguously disclose their connections to brands and companies they are promoting.

Thursday’s settlement specifically requires two YouTubers — Trevor “TmarTn” Martin and Thomas “Syndicate” Cassell — to clearly disclose relationships with brands they promote in the future. Along with that settlement, the FTC revealed Thursday that it has sent these warning letters to 21 unnamed Instagram influencers stating that connections between themselves and the products they are endorsing “should be clearly and conspicuously disclosed” per the FTC’s Endorsement Guides.

Miley Cyrus tries very hard to explain millennial behavior to Ellen Degeneres

TwitterFacebook

 
She’s talking about her g-g-g-generation! 

Singer-songwriter, Miley Cyrus, gave a much needed lesson on The Ellen Show in a segment called “Mileyennials and Me.” Ellen DeGeneres wanted to try to understand millennials and who better to school her about generation Y than the “Wrecking Ball” singer? 

During the segment, DeGeneres asked why exactly do millennials post pictures of food on Instagram, what’s the deal with Coachella, and of course, the new millennial dance craze. DeGeneres also added a relatable part to the segment in which her and the singer are both on their phones and silent. Read more…
