Statigram the Web Viewer of Instagram


Statigram is the best website to view photos from Instagram, photos that you may have uploaded or anyone else you are following. On this website you have more space available to view many photos at one time compared to the small screen on your iPhone, Android or tablet. A computer screen just can’t be beat when you want to relax and not have to fiddle with your fingers to view some photos.

The website presents a grid view of photos similar to what Twitter used to offer on a users photos archive but they don’t anymore. It was a big disappointment!

Below are screenshots of Statigram and the numerous advantages that it offers to Instagram users. I would like to also point-out that you do not have to create an account for Statigram as you can login with your Instagram account.

Facebook Adoption

When you first started using Facebook you were excited to have access to a tool which helped communicate with present and long lost friends. Facebook makes it convenient for people to communicate with each other, streaming environment unlike the email. The tool does only inform you of other people’s lives unlike Twitter the broadcasting tool of all news.

I did a dissertation related to Diffusion of Innovations for my final year at the University of Sunderland, business and product selected to test and explain the theory was Apple’s iPod’s. Now every product or service goes through this process and it is similar to the product life cycle.

The ‘Diffusion of Innovations’ however is different because it involves the rate of the social system at adopting an innovation.  For example with Apple’s iPod it was the loyal brand consumers and technology enthusiasts who were the innovators, early adopters were influenced by the exclusive product that the innovators carried around. Early adopters helped the product be a success by influencing others such as the early majority. The ‘rate of adoption’ can be slow or fast and every innovation is unique in that way, cooperation’s that have had previous success may see a fast ‘rate of adoption’ in the social system.

Everett Rogers popularised the theory in his book back in 1962 ‘Diffusion of Innovations’ and the 2010 edition is available now.

Back to the main topic, Facebook went through exactly the same process except it had no brand followers and it were ‘geeks’ and friends of the owner who were the innovators in the ‘rate of adoption’ model. As time went by it was adopted in the social system by the younger generation at first and then the older generation who are known as the late majority for now. Now from that Facebook changed and your experience changed as a user because it was not exclusive. Below is a list of the ‘type of people’ you may have on your Facebook account, parents and older relatives for example would not be on that list in 2007.

In order of importance to a majority on Facebook:

  1. Relative
  2. Intimate Relationship
  3. Mutual Friend
  4. Online Friend
  5. Just a Facebook Number

Another blog post in the future will explain in detail the various types of ‘Facebook Friends’ that are listed above.

Virgin Media under investigation for broadband speed claims

Virgin Media’s claims of ‘the UK’s fastest broadband’ have brought a formal investigation by the Advertising Standard Authority.

Virgin Media is currently under investigation by the Advertising Standards Authority, following complaints over its claimed broadband speeds.

T3 was told by the ASA that it has an ongoing formal investigation into Virgin Media with regards to adverts which claim it provides ‘the UK’s fastest broadband.’

BT has challenged whether the claim is misleading and can be substantiated.

Matt Wilson from the ASA told us: “The outcome of an upheld ASA investigation, i.e. where an advertiser if found in breach of the Advertising Code is that the ad has to be withdrawn and is prohibited from appearing again. We have and will continue to clamp down on any advertiser that makes misleading advertising claims about its broadband services.”

The organisation will release its findings ‘imminently’.

We contacted Virgin Media for a comment, and a spokesperson told us: “Virgin Media delivers broadband speeds of up to 100Mb, soon to be 120Mb, more than 13 times faster than the UK’s average. And we deliver on the speeds we promise, consistently proven by Ofcom.”

The ASA has upheld complaints against Virgin’s broadband speed claims in the past. In 2009 B Sky B  challenged whether the claim “10 out of 10 homes with our fibre optic broadband can get 20Mb” was misleading, because it did not believe there was sufficient capacity in Virgin’s network to provide all customers with 20Mb at the same time.

And in 2011 BT challenged Virgin adverts which stated “Ofcom have proven our fibre optic broadband is around twice as fast as BT.”

Loss of Productivity due to Digital Interruptions


There is not much to write in this post as the images will display all the facts. What I can say is that many organisations need to consider new methods of monitoring how effective and efficient their employees are in the modern age of technology. For example for social networking a software could be installed on every computer to monitor the amount of time each employee spends on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and etc.
