Instagram is not only a fun app for personal use; it's also a great marketing tool for all kinds of businesses and professionals to showcase their products and works of art (I mean, at least it was until that pesky algorithm nonsense kicked in...) If you use both Facebook and Instagram for your business, makeup artistry, creative work, graphic designs, or whatever, you can actually tie them together so your images automatically filter to your business page or fan page instead of your personal profile!

Linking facebook page to instagram
Using both Instagram and Facebook is getting even simpler — Facebook is now rolling out a minor change that will make swapping from Facebook to Instagram a little easier. A new link to Instagram will soon appear inside the app menu underneath the navigation to the user’s profile. While Facebook confirmed the change, the feature has not yet rolled out to every user.Tapping the Instagram option opens up the Instagram app, eliminating the need to navigate back to the home screen to open Instagram. According to TechCrunch, which first confirmed the change, Instagram does not yet have a similar feature for easily navigating to Facebook. The social media company says that the change is designed to help users keep in touch with friends on both platforms.The separate accounts have to be linked — a feature that’s available in the settings options. Users that don’t have linked accounts (or do not have an Instagram account) won’t see changes to the menu … [Read more...] about Swap from Facebook to Instagram without navigating back to that home screen
Facebook’s protocol for handling copyright infringement is being criticized after many tech blogs have had their Facebook pages abruptly taken down. Ars Technica, RedmondPie and Neowin are some of the sites that are saying they are victims of DMCA abuse.The DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is a piece of legislation that cracks down and heightens penalties on Internet copyright infringement. The fact that Facebook responds to claims about infringement by immediately taking down the reported content is fairly typical. No one wants to get in the middle of copyright drama.What is being contested is that any person feeling malicious can use one of their dozens of Gmail or Hotmail accounts to report improper use of intellectual property to Facebook. On the non-copyright claim, a report needs to include a name, address, phone number and email along with reasons for the complaint. The social networking site then executes blind retribution without verifying that the … [Read more...] about Tech blogs’ disabled Facebook pages caused by DMCA abuse
Out of all the airlines to have an active, friendly Facebook presence, it’s hard to find a less likely candidate than Air Koryo, North Korea’s state-owned (and only) air carrier. It has the ignominious distinction of being the only airline to receive just one star from Skytrax, and its official website doesn’t work. Air Koryo is the farthest from technologically advanced you can get for a functioning airline, yet the Facebook page is constantly updated with photos and friendly messages.North Korea just got visits from Dennis Rodman and Google’s Eric Schmidt, but most citizens do not have access to the Internet in the same way that people do in other countries. They are generally limited to a tightly controlled intranet, which is why people rarely interact with North Koreans within the state on sites like Facebook. So how is Air Koryo doing it?Are things changing in North Korea?North Korea made efforts to jump into social media with an official Twitter … [Read more...] about How is this North Korean airline running an incredibly active Facebook page?
