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.

Marketing Cuts at HSBC

HSBC has not used the word “cut” but actually used a word that sounds more positive, “restrucures” is the word that has been used for the marketing division within the organisation. There are many people who work in the marketing division that will be unemployed soon because the organisation is going to integrate many of the departments in the marketing division to cut costs.

There are many such as myself who have studied in the field of marketing and find it very hard in the UK to actually find a company that is ready to employ. Marketing is a very important element in any organisation, people who have studied marketing create, plan and implement strategies that help gain exposure for the business. Marketing is not only considered to be an area that involves advertising. In numerous ways marketing is the tool that causes companies to gain a high volume of customers, sales, revenue and etc. People who have the knowledge and skills in this field help businesses to even change who they are, for example CRM (Cause Related Marketing) decades ago helped American Express gain exposure and business by relating themselves to a cause like the refurnishing of the Statue of Liberty.

At the time that was a modern CRM and it helped build a great cooperate image for American Express as it made customers aware that they could help the cause. People were able to help the cause if they made a application for a American Express card during the campaign period, $1 from each application would go towards restoring the Statue of Liberty.

The point I am trying to make is that marketing is a very important aspect to businesses and cutting jobs or funds to a important element of the business strategy can cause more problems. The economic downturn is causing businesses to point the blame to the marketing departments for failures and financial troubles. It only takes one effective marketing campaign to make a business successful and it has to be consistent, Apple is one example to consider.

Yes – Social Media Will Redefine Small Businesses

One of the fascinating things about change is that it rarely occurs in a linear motion. Things don’t remain static as change sweeps throughout the system; every single item touched by the transformation agent sets off on its own trajectory, itself stirring up change in those around it.

The entire process is like a twirling kaleidoscope, except that it’s less orderly, less predictable, and much more wildly dynamic — like a simmering cauldron ready to boil over. The social media landscape displays just such wildly dynamic behavior.

Change is the catalyst that propels the entire industry forward, igniting more transformations that themselves stoke new innovations and so on. Take the handful of cutting-edge technologies presented here; most are by-products of the social revolution.

They developed to provide for new end-user needs brought about by the new social dynamics. And they will, no doubt, fuel the next level of change and development, particularly in the area of small and medium-sized business.

Here is my take on what trends will propel businesses forward and open up new and exciting dimensions. Mobile Devices Apple has just recently announced financial results for the third quarter of its 2011 fiscal year — including a whopping net profit of over seven billion dollars from over 28 billion dollars in revenue.

A huge chunk of this exemplary financial performance is the result of over 20 million iPhones and over nine million iPads sold during this period. Consider all the other mobile devices from competing brands, and the writing on the wall is as clear as day; mobile devices are here to stay and make a tremendous impact on our lives, including how we conduct business.

  1. While it may not be obvious, the small screens of most mobile devices is a determining factor to how business communication and transactions will be handled.
  2. Mobile devices facilitate location-based marketing.
  3. There is probably a mobile app for whatever business need you have.
  4. Messaging works well with mobile devices.

YouTube Television In 2010

YouTube’s viewership finally exceeded that of the big three networks during prime time. And recently it has reinvented itself from a mere video uploading facility to become more of a social media platform.

With new features such as channels, feeds and analytics, YouTube is better positioned to serve as a business tool companies can use to promote their businesses.


E-commerce appears to be a great fit with social. In the past, consumers have determined the direction of e-commerce by initiating mechanisms such as review sites, consultation and price and feature comparison. In the era of social, more and more apps are becoming available that businesses can integrate into their sites to improve the buying experience.

New Advertising Directions

More companies are experimenting with new advertising models anchored on the framework of social networks. Unlike earlier attempts at online advertising which were based on the old advertising models that looked cumbersome in the new digital marketing environment, these new advertising paradigms are built on the flow and function of digital — particularly social media.


The success of social networks underscores an important human need that is met by these platforms — humans need to communicate, relate and interact.

From a business perspective, the attraction lies in peoples’ tendency to gather around and even champion ideas and causes.

Substitute these for products, solutions or the company’s marketing message, and the prospects for community development in a business setting appear truly exciting, at the very least.

Putting together the right social media campaign isn’t always as easy as one would like, but there isplenty of help out there if you need it.


Latitude Leaderboard: Does Google Want to Be the New Foursquare?

Google is expanding its reach across social media — first with Google+, now with Leaderboard, a new feature allowing users to earn points for checking in to a location via GoogleLatitude.

Last week, Google launched an updated version of Google Maps for Android, equipped with the new feature similar to Foursquare.

The company hasn’t officially said it wants to compete against Foursquare. Leaderboard’s addition to Google Latitude has been kept hush-hush. Google doesn’t even list Leaderboard as being a new feature on the Android Google Maps update. It only says it fixed bugs and has “improved battery performance for Latitude and Location History users.” Leaderboard is only available on the latest version of Google Maps, and not everyone has access to the feature yet.

We tested the new version of Google Maps with the Latitude Leaderboards on an Android smartphone. It is only accessible after a user checks in somewhere using Google Latitude. Maps users can share their location — as they have for the past year — with Google’s Latitude app. After check-in, the user earns points and is navigated to the Leaderboard page, which ranks the user and his or her Google+ friends. There is also a global page that ranks all users based on points from check-ins. The person with the most points earns a crown above his or her No. 1 ranking. Leaderboard doesn’t have a mayor, like Foursquare.

Do you use check-in apps? Would you leave Foursquare for Google’s Latitude Leaderboard?
