Priyanka Chopra Just Went Blonde — One Month After Her Wedding

It's been seven days since we last heard from Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas on social media — and by now we know that's out of the ordinary for the newlyweds. Sure, after their three-day wedding celebration in early December and a Caribbean honeymoon (which they live-blogged via Instagram Stories), it would make sense for the two to slow down, take a break from Instagram, and revel in wedded bliss. But today is not that day — at least, not according to Chopra's brand-new hair color.Just an hou...

Instagram caught selling ads to follower-buying services it banned

Instagram has been earning money from businesses flooding its social network with spam notifications. Instagram hypocritically continues to sell ad space to services that charge clients for fake followers or that automatically follow/unfollow other people to get them to follow the client back. This is despite Instagram reiterating a ban on these businesses in November and threatening the accounts of people who employ them. A TechCrunch investigation initially found 17 services selling fake fo...

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel claimed Instagram makes you feel ‘terrible’ and Snapchat doesn’t. But data suggests he’s wrong. (SNAP)

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel recently said that Instagram made users feel "terrible" because they had to "compete for popularity." Spiegel has yet to provide any proof to back up this claim, and current research suggests he is wrong. Snapchat does, however, seem to have a slightly better emotional impact on users than Instagram, according to multiple surveys. Assessing the impact of social-media apps on emotional well-being is complicated by factors like "active" versus "passive" use, and timeframe. ...

Facebook is cashing in on direct-to-consumer brands — even as marketers are scrambling to shift money elsewhere

According to new research from Facebook, 45% of disruptor brands said that they've built their business on the platform compared to 15% of non-disruptor brands. That reliance may lessen as DTC companies look to other kinds of advertising to reach potential customers. Facebook is betting big on Stories to keep interest from disruptor brands strong. With and a need to diversify away from Facebook, a number of direct-to-consumer brands have started spending less on Facebook in the past year. Bu...

This New Instagram Filter Is a Selfie Game-Changer, but There's a Catch

Image before and after the Paris filter. A few months ago, I received a pleasant surprise from Instagram. Sadly, it wasn't that my timeline was back to chronological order, but I did get a new filter. I saw it immediately because it was the first one to pop up as I swiped to the right. It's called Paris, and similar to how Snapchat has the "pretty filter," Paris blurs the skin so it looks immediately FaceTuned. It's like the contrast of the Oslo filter and the brightness of the Cairo filter had ...

Mohamed Salah’s social media update after Man City & Chelsea lost

Man City & Chelsea lose Liverpool were huge winners on Saturday in the Premier League after Manchester City and Chelsea both lost. Chelsea’s title hopes were already in the balance after defeats to Tottenham and Wolves. However any residual hopes Chelsea may be able to force themselves back into contention seemed snuffed out in a 1-0 defeat at home to Leicester. A Jamie Vardy goal sunk the Blues in the 51st minute.
