Facebook has rolled out its Instant Articles feature to anyone with a Facebook fan page. We took it for a test drive to see how easy it was to get approved.
Facebook has a new tool for publishers that keeps users on Facebook and doesn’t direct them elsewhere — introducing Instant Articles.
We made this advert in Adobe After Effects this morning. It shows a quick tour of our website and why it does what it does.
A while ago, we posted an entry about Facebook competitions and promotions, and how to stay on the right side of their terms and conditions.
But there’s good news! The rules about running promotions have been reduced to just four. And these new rules allow you to do a lot of the stuff you previously couldn’t.
Several years ago, words like Twitter, tweet, hashtag and retweet were part of a vocabulary limited to early adopters in social media. Today, it’s hard to watch television, look at an advertisement or walk down the street without seeing a prompt to tweet or use a particular hashtag. What goes on?
We’ve all seen them. A brand’s Facebook page posts a photo showing a prize. “Like our page and share this photo to enter!” proclaims the accompanying blurb.
These types of competition are very common. They work really well because there’s not much a user has to do to enter – a couple of clicks and they’re in the hat. For the brand, it’s a larger audience for their page and their brand message. What’s not to like?
The answer is: Facebook doesn’t like it. And this type of Facebook competition could get a brand into some trouble.
