People You May Know

I don’t recognize many people in this film, but this was something that caught my eye and a plot that kind of fascinated me. I’ve been intrigued with the “People You May Know” section for quite some time on a number of social networks – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn. I’m not quite sure how this plot is going to play out, but it’s a film that I’d watch on Netflix for sure, just not in theaters.

Getting Engaged in 2015

Now, when my friends are getting engaged these days, I don’t imagine that they are experiencing a scenario like this one. However, there’s a part of me that thinks that maybe there is some staging happening to an extent. This one takes it a little bit too far, but it’s something to think about isn’t it? I’ve been meaning to write a post on this (and I will soon, I promise) but lately a friend/co-worker of mine and I have been “beefing” up our Instagram game. We’ve taken things to some pretty extreme lengths and it’s almost to the point if it hasn’t gotten there already that our friends are starting to hate us a little bit.

“Are you using VSCO to edit your photo?”

“Can you take this one more time?”

“Did you double share to Facebook? TAG US!”

More on that later though…

Burlington Coat Factory Tweets

I came across a pretty interesting post today on my newsfeed (thanks Michael Sem!) and couldn’t resist the urge to click the link. Apparently the Burlington Coat Factory has been posting some awkward tweets and…is there anything we love more here on Yow Yow than something that screams awkward?! Let me provide you with an example:


Is that some philosophy I see?

Whatever the case, we support this. If it boosts their followers, then clearly they are doing something right. For more tweets and hashtags used incorrectly, click here.

Clarification: Burlington Coat Factory has confirmed that this is not their official Twitter, but still – wouldn’t you follow it anyways? It’s nice to pretend.

Facebook Introduces Shared Photo Albums

photo cred | Mashable

Never showing any signs of slowing down, our favorite social networking website introduced a new feature that probably won’t receive very many complaints – at least maybe not yet.  In the past, albums were only allowed to be created and administered by one person and could hold up to 1,000 photos. With the new shared albums, there can be multiple contributors. What’s the best way to use this album? I love the example that the article has provided for vacations and trips. The feature is also great because we all know that at events, multiple friends can play photographer at parties and it would be nice to have that variation in photographs in one album.

The new feature was created during one of Facebook’s hackathons – a term that is becoming a household name within startups as a period of time when all employees take a break from whatever they do normally at work to design something innovative for the company.

Starting this week, the feature will be released to a select group of English users followed by an expansion internationally.

Also at Yow Yow! we’re a huge fan of working with friends and promoting their work. This article was written on Mashable by a friend of mine and he did an incredible job with it!

LinkedIn Lowers Age Minimum To 14

Since I made my LinkedIn profile when I was in high school, it had never occurred to me that the professional networking site had an age minimum. It makes perfect sense though because while I am the biggest advocate for the site, I have seen it be used and abused for dating. Not only is it distasteful that people would do that or that it is my biggest peeve, but it makes people that use it for professional purposes lose their trust in it. Not even they are safe from unwanted advances on LinkedIn!

That would be my biggest concern when I learned that LinkedIn has decided to lower the age minimum to 14. In this day and age, entrepreneurs are getting started younger and younger and that’s great for them! I see them using it as a tool for connecting with those that will help them in their career, finding a mentor, and even learning how to build a resume (a good one!) if they don’t utilize their college resources or have no outlet for that. There are pros and cons to both sides of it. I hope that those at 14 will use it wisely and I hope that those well over 14 will not take advantage of those who are.

Seattle Police Dept. Twitter


Locals, have any of you been following the Seattle Police Dept. Twitter recently? Apparently, they have been making some headlines for their social media presence and receiving some attention. And for good reason because this tweet that I retweeted out this week was hilarious! Yes, the Seattle Police Dept. mean serious business in our city, but it’s nice to see that even they have an amusing sense of humor. We are sending some social media praise over to this team today! Please keep the funny coming.
