The day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Hootsuite and Instagram are together at last, and hey all you Social Media Managers, this is going to make your life a heck of a lot easier. If you aren’t already familiar with Hootsuite, it’s a social media app that allows you to import multiple accounts from multiple platforms and profiles.

It began as a simple Twitter dashboard but quickly expanded to include Facebook and LinkedIn, and now due to popular demand, Instagram.
If you’ve been on the internet at all in the past week, I’m sure you’ve seen this little number floating around somewhere in your Twitter or Facebook feed. It’s the now infamous, “What happens an hour after you drink a Coca-Cola?” infographic. This post was originally written by Niraj Naik or “The Renegade Pharmacist” out of the UK, to demonstrate all the harmful effects a regular old can of Coke can have on your body in just one hour.

Never the less, it has resulted in a highly debated infographic that has blown up all over the internet. So, let’s take a closer look at the original post to see just what we are dealing with.
Well, it happened. Ashley Madison, the worlds biggest dating site catering to married people looking to have an affair, has been hacked. We can only imagine the mass hysteria that is hitting Ashley Madison’s estimated 37 Million users. You’d be freaking out too if your identity, sexual fantasies and recent love affairs were going to soon become public knowledge! So, just how did this happen? Well, with the recent AdultFriendFinder.com hack, it wasn’t a long shot to say Ashley Madison might be next.

Whether you know why they are there or not, it’s pretty safe to say we all see a #hashtag or a two on a daily basis. They’ve spread from their native Twitter to almost every other social sharing platform in just a few short years (fun fact: the first hashtag was tweeted by Chris Messina in 2007.) But what do they really do? Even though all hashtags come in the same format, the purpose and function on each network is different. The general consensus throughout all social networks is we should be using hashtags, so here’s a list of how the top 5 social platforms use hashtags, and which ones will give you the most #bangforyourbuck when it comes to visibility and engagement.
There are a lot of basic things that we are taught as young children not to do or say. Apparently, Donald Trump missed a few of these early life lessons which became evident in his recent presidential campaign speech. It include such gems as insulting people (“Free trade can be wonderful if you have smart people, but we have people that are…stupid.”) making racist comments (“[Mexicans] They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.”) or just being a general jerk (“I don’t need anyone’s money, I’m rich!”). Fortunately for us, most of our parents took the time to teach us these things so we could go through life developing positive relationships and ultimately avoid having an entire country want to make piñatas in our likeness (yes, that actually happened to Donald, see it here). So, just incase you missed some of these things, we’ve compiled a list of the top 8 things you shouldn’t do or say on social media…or in real life for that matter.
