Have you listened to the Girls Gotta Eat podcast? Comedian and co-host, Ashley Hesseltine joins us on #SocialLIVE to give us her unfiltered view on the success of the hilarious and uncensored podcast.
In #socialmedia news, Courtney and Jules discuss some of this week’s major announcements from your favorite platforms:
- Last week, Instagram’s co-founders, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, resigned from the company. Systrom and Krieger created the app in 2010 and have grown from 13 people to over a thousand with offices around the world. Since being bought by Facebook in 2012, the app has expanded capabilities and grown their user base to over 1 billion people. We discuss what we think they will do next.
- In other Instagram news, a new potential update might end overhashing on the platform. A code hacker found what appears to be a new option that would let users add hashtags to their posts in a separate field.
- Snapchat‘s partnership with Amazon is officially happening! The new test is a new way to search for products on Amazon right from the Snapchat camera. The feature will begin rolling out slowly in the coming months.
- Facebook is now allowing some Pages to join Facebook groups, and comment and interact within them as a business Page. This update will help brands and businesses further engage with their audience and makes sense given the prioritization of groups since Facebook update its algorithm.
- Lastly, Ashley Hesseltine joins #SocialLIVE to chat about the success of her podcast, Girls Gotta Eat, and talk about why you should DM dogs over dudes.
