1. Flickr now has more and better filters than Instagram. There’s the ability to like your friends’ photos just as you can on Instagram. It’s got geotagging (which, up until a new photo taking button, was the only product innovation Instagram had provided since launching the product 2 years ago). It has the ability to push the photo updates out to Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter (Instagam no longer plays nice with Twitter).

    All these updates would be enough to make Flickr’s mobile app better than Instagram’s. However, they still have the ability to push the photos out to groups of all kinds (always a Flickr strength), photo stats (how many times has your photo been viewed? and on which camera was it taken?), and storage. That last one is big. Because it actually allows Flickr to generate revenue, something which Instagram has yet to do since its inception. I’ve been a pro subscriber for years now and I’ll keep re-upping. All my public and private photos are there.

    It’s like I can’t keep track of who’s David and who’s Goliath anymore, and that’s fascinating.

  2. Posting as many as three jokes a day (for Father’s Day, she tweeted: “What should I buy my dad today? He already has golf clubs and a secret family in Ohio.’’), Amram calls Twitter “the fast-forward button’’ on her career. “It’s naturally how I think anyway, in micro-jokes,’’ she says. “It’s a puzzle, a challenge to see if you can make a joke in one line.’’

  3. Not only is it not always a numbers game, it’s also often more about how the interactions are structured. Smith is a great example of someone who has genuinely engaged with fans of all shapes and sizes both when he has a movie to promote and when he hasn’t. Compare that to other directors and actors who are only interested in posting updates when they have something they’re actively trying to promote or who are tone-deaf to their fans, never replying or otherwise interacting. Many directors go completely dark between movies or will only engage with the movie press that’s on Twitter.

    If there’s a single truism in social media marketing it’s that you get out of it what you put into it.

  7. Essentially, Digital Life Sacrifice is asking the public to decide whether they’d prefer to live in world where children don’t die of HIV and Aids, or a world where Kim Kardashian – essentially a less useful version of Paris Hilton – doesn’t use Twitter to bombard followers with links to KardashianKard.com, her dreadful-sounding prepaid credit card website. It’s a tough choice.

  8. The Square iPhone Payment System consists of the reader and an app. After a card swipe, the customer uses a finger to sign the iPod touch or iPhone, one of the participants in the transaction enters the customer’s email address, and a receipt with the location of the transaction, the signature, and other standard information is emailed to the customer.
    What do you do after you start Twitter? Invent a credit card reader.
