Snapchat Has Some New Competition
July 30th, 2014 by Isaiah Reed
Instagram is refusing to let Snapchat have all the fun. After launching its direct message feature seven months ago, Instagram has created an entirely new app titled "Bolt" that allows users to send auto-deleting photos to their friends. Bolt (iOS, Android) has already launched in New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa, with more locations being added soon. Users will have to input their phone number, and the app syncs with their contacts to allow sharing with friends. A Facebook or Instagram account is not needed.

It’s sitting at a three-star rating in the iTunes Store as of today and it is yet to be determined if the app will have any success. Bolt is attempting to differentiate itself by simplifying the sending process.

Don't Tweet and Fly
July 24th, 2014 by Jennifer Graber
We all have aired complaints on social media, in one way or another. Perhaps a restaurant provided a less-than-stellar experience that prompted us to reward them with a scathing Facebook review. Or, maybe a shipping company damaged a package and we posted a quick photo on Instagram. Maybe we had to wait an excessive amount of time on hold with tech support only to be disconnected, so we complained online. Whatever the case may be, we all have been there.
