Are You Ready Instagram New Holiday Season Update

adsbygoogle
are you ready? Instagram is working on something amazing for you to enjoy your season with either you fall into Instagram's target audience or not, there is no denying that the Facebook-owned social network is working really hard to stay relevant and as "1337" as possible, as the younger crowd would put it. (Provided that reference isn't horribly outdated already).


Instagram latest update (version 26, if anyone is actually keeping track) is chuck full of holiday spirit. There are three new festive filters to enjoy: a frosted glass effect, holiday makeup and a gold and silver balloon overlay, complete with digital confetti. In addition, the stickers library will soon be expanded with a range of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa-themed ones, including penguins, snowflakes, ice skates, winter clothing and more.

The graphic department has clearly been keeping busy, but so have the developers. One of the more advanced new additions to the v26 update is a set of new sounds for the Superzoom effect. Users will be able to choose from “Beats,” “Bounce,” and “TV Show” sounds. If you're like us and not exactly intimately familiar with Superzoom, it is basically a dramatic close-up video effect, to the sound of dramatic music, introduced back in October last year.


Recall that Instagram is already testing a separate Direct app, which basically separates out the messaging feature, Facebook Messenger-style. While undoubtedly a polarizing move, the division is bound to happen at some point. Rumours also hint at a new ability to re-post other people's photos and videos, as well as GIF support in Stories for future Instagram updates.

Be expecting to start seeing all the new content, roll our gradually over the next few weeks. And there is more to look forward to as well. The company has confirmed that it will be implementing a text-based search feature for emojis and stickers in Stories. Initially, English will be the only supported language and it should be enough to simplify the hunting process.

Instagram Direct! A Separates Messaging App For Instagram Chats

adsbygoogle
Instagram is working a sweet development that will give you a swift and a nice time with your activities on Instagram. The popular social media is currently testing Direct, a new messaging app that was previously a part of the main Instagram app. Basically, the company has taken the direct messaging feature of Instagram and spun it into a separate app, turning it into the Snapchat clone it always wanted.


Currently, the app is available today in six countries: Chile, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay, on both, iOS and Android. There currently is no timeline for when this app will be available everywhere, if at all.

Just like Snapchat, Direct opens up in the camera view, letting you quickly snap a picture of video and send it to someone. You can swipe left and go to your Inbox on the right or swipe right and go to your app settings. And that's pretty much it. Apparently, if you keep swiping left from your inbox, you see the Instagram logo and are then sent to the Instagram app. Similarly, if you swipe right in the main Instagram app you will be sent to the Direct app.

Direct messaging has been part of Instagram for a few years now but initially was extremely basic. The feature saw a big boost in functionality and user base after the launch of the Instagram Stories feature. It must be noted that Stories doesn't seem to be shifting over to Direct, at least not based on current screenshots. Whether that happens later or not remains to be seen but it makes sense for it to be within the messaging app. On the other hand, a huge reason Instagram Stories took off in the first place is that it was tacked on top, front and center, of an already popular app and there was no way for the user to opt out. With Stories moved to Direct, it could either help increase the user base of Direct or make people stop using the feature and the app entirely.

Instagram's rationale for this is the same one they had back when they separated Messenger from Facebook. They want Direct to be something bigger, which it can only be when it is on its own. However, unlike Messenger, which always had the potential to be a full-fledged messaging app, Instagram Direct only really works or is relevant within the realm of Instagram and becomes largely irrelevant on its own.

Then there is also the question, just how many messaging apps are too many messaging apps? Never mind others but Facebook itself right now has Messenger as well as WhatsApp and now we have Direct. These are still three different markets and Facebook might just be hoping it stays that way but there is a certain amount of fatigue that sets in simply knowing you now have to deal with so many messaging apps and eventually people pick one or the other.

Personally, I don't mind Direct much. I would miss the lack of messaging facility in the main Instagram app but if it means there is even a small possibility that Stories goes away from it and we go back to the good old days of pre-Facebook Instagram then I'm completely fine with it.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Blog to Promote Your Business

adsbygoogle
Is it possible to promote a business without spending a lot of money? While business development requires having funds, even with a limited budget you still have a chance to promote your brand. Writing a blog is one of the most effective tools for a business promotion that any entrepreneur can afford.

It may help you increase the sales, find new customers, and become more recognizable. Not all businessmen realize what a huge power a successful business blog might have. Here are some reasons why you should start a blog for your business and what goals it should have.
1. Increasing the Traffic
One of the most important goals of any business is to attract visitors to the company’s website. This result is often achieved by spending money on advertising. Despite its efficacy, the outcome of this method is not long-lasting. Writing a blog could bring the same results and is less expensive. Every post on your blog will make the website more visible and eventually will help you attract more people. The web pages of most business are rarely renewed because product description and company info stay the same. A regularly updated blog might become a good reason to visit your website more often.
2. Enlarging the Base of Customers
If you look for a method to increase the sales and find new clients, writing a blog could be something you need. Every blog post should contain a call-to-action button that will lead visitors to the landing page. There you might place a free offer that could be available for someone who leaves his personal information. A visitor has to leave phone number or e-mail to get a free trial, eBook or other exclusive material. This way you may collect a base of potential clients for your sales managers.
3. Visibility on Social Media
Writing blog articles is a great way to increase your presence on social networks. Share buttons on your blog posts allow spreading the articles on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Blog article might become a great content for your social media pages. This way you will have great material and promotion for your website at the same time. Add a few teasing lines in a comment to your blog post when adding it to social media profiles. It will make it more appealing to the clients and awake their interest.
4. Building Your Reputation
Trust and credibility are extremely important for having good sales and attracting customers. In numerous cases, people buy products of a certain brand because of its reputation. A clear explanation of product’s advantages and functionality is another factor which encourages clients to make new purchases. Blog articles that contain helpful tips will be highly appreciated by clients. It may increase your brand’s credibility which might lead to better sales.
5. Personalizing the Website
Most websites look formal, strict and very distant from the customer. The absence of any personal details can turn the potential customer off and they will not stay on the page for a long time. While it may not be appropriate to include personal details when it comes to your business website, a blog is perfectly suitable for that. It can tell more details about you, your experiences, and company’s goals. Customers are eager to buy products from someone they can relate to. Showing some personality is a great way to get customers involved and have a good impression.
Writing a blog is an affordable and effective method of business development. It might help you become closer to your clients, win their trust, increase the sales, and become more noticeable on social media. The best thing about writing a blog is its long-lasting influence. The articles will appear in a search for months while you spend only a few hours to write them. Remember that writing blog is only helpful if you write it consistently.

Tips to boost your Windows 8 performance

adsbygoogle
Undoubtedly the performance which Windows 8 delivers is unmatched if it is compared with its predecessor i.e. Windows 7. However, with the passage of time one must face some lag and downfall in the performance of the system. Sometimes the performance lags to such an extent that a user start feeling to either upgrade his complete system with a new one or replace the hardware like memory or processor. But in both cases, it will unnecessarily cost you a lot.
Actually, it doesn’t matter which operating system is installed on your PC. As sooner or later its performance will start downgrading. Therefore, it is better to follow some tweaks which will again boost the speed of your system.
In this article, we are providing you with some useful tips which will boost the performance of your Windows 8 PC.

1. Remove/Disable Unnecessary services  

You can disable unrequired running services by following the steps given below:
  • Press the keys Win+R simultaneously to open the RUN Window.

    C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_1_5740203581.png
Now, enter “msconfig” in the Run Window and Press enter.

C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_1_9615459635.png
  • System Configuration Window gets opened. Locate “Services tab” and click the check box of the “Hide all Microsoft services”.
  • Here, uncheck all the other services that you do not require.

  

2. Manage Your Startup Programs

Fast Startup feature in Windows 8 helps the computer boot up quickly after a complete shutdown. This must always be “Enabled”.
C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_1_9791038773.png
Windows startup “Manage Utility” has now been moved from “msconfig” Window to Task Manager.
  • Open the RUN Window as before and enter “taskmgr” and press enter to open the Task manager.
C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_1_5044053543.png
  • In Task Manager, locate the “More Details” at left down corner and click it to get the start-up.
C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_2_9941861547.png
  • Click the app, you require and disable others.

3. Turn Off Visual Effects
You can turn specific Windows visual effects on or off to improve the performance. To provide 3D effect, you can display shadows under menus. Also, you can also display folders with watermarks, and icon size can be increased.
Below are the steps using which you can make changes in visual effects.

  • Click Start > Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings

In the window that open click on Settings in the Performance option.
      
  • Now In the new window that open select the option “Adjust for best performance”.  






4. Advanced System Optimizer
Advanced System Optimizer is one of the most powerful cleanup and optimization software available. It does a better job to speedup Windows 8 by its many optimizing options. It removes unnecessary junk files that occupies unnecessary space in Windows, updates outdated drivers and protects the system from malware and spyware threats. For a novice user it is one of the best available tool to speed up windows 8.

5. Disable Animations and Increase Performance

Windows 8 has the property of animating whenever you minimize, maximize the window and closing the programs. However, these animations affect the performance of your system. Therefore, you can disable this animation to increase the performance of Windows.
  • Click Start > Open the RUN Command Window to enter “SystemPropertiesAdvanced” and press enter. Click the Setting button in the Performance section.
C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\w84.png
  • Now Performance Options window gets opened. Here click on Custom and uncheck the options displayed in the screenshot.

6. Turn Off Search Indexing

The user may not understand it but continuing search indexing can reduce the computer performance. Windows index service automatically monitor all your files and indexes all your files for easy searching. This background service increases the CPU load and it may reduce your system performance. You can stop this service to speedup Windows 8, however, search process may get slowed down.
C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_1_6569773070.png
  • Click Start > Enter “services.msc” in Run command prompt and press Enter. Locate for Windows Search, right-click on it and select Properties.

C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\Downloads\imageedit_1_4476320620.png
In another window that prompts, change the Startup type to “Disabled”
 7. Close unnecessary Processes which are consuming more memory:
C:\Users\vishwadeep.mathur\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Content.Word\w89.png
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to get a list of the processes in Windows Task Manager. Now, sort by “memory” tab to analyze the process which is consuming the most memory. If that process is unnecessary then end it.
If you follow all the above tips then surely your system will start performing like a new one.

Ways To Extend Android Battery Life

adsbygoogle
With so much to do with your smartphone, you wish that the battery of your phone could possibly last longer. Although, with apps like Facebook, Whatsapp and YouTube running on your phone and continuous browsing in addition to big screens, it seems nearly impossible.
So, you might have a question in your mind, “ How can you make your Android’s battery last for a longer time?”


Well, there are a few hacks that could help the battery to sustain for a longer time. In this post, we have listed some of them to make your lives easier.


Connectivity Features
Wifi, Bluetooth, and location services(GPS) take up your battery sooner than you think. So, it is wise to turn them off, when not using. In desperate times, you can also disable the cellular connection.
To knock them off at once, turn on AirPlane Mode as it will turn off the services and save the battery power. If you have to choose between cellular data and Wifi, always choose Wifi as comparatively, Wifi drains less battery.

Close The App Once You are Done
Android users used to have app killers to knock off the apps to conserve battery but the downside of it was that they drain more battery than conserving it. However, with time Android has become smarter. You can alter a few settings and choose a number of background process that runs at a time. Follow these steps:
  • Go to Settings-> About phone->Device Information.
  • Locate Build Number and tap on it repeatedly, until you get the message that you are a developer.
  • Now go back to Settings, now you will see Developer Options. Tap on it.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page, and under Apps, tap on Background process limit.
  • By default Background process limit is set to Standard Limit, change it to At most 3 or 4 processes.
In this way, you can control the number of background processes running.

Use Internet Smartly
Not everyone has an access to Wifi, so most of the people use cellular data which drains the battery like hell. So, if you have an approach to both wifi and cellular network, also prefer Wifi.
This will not only save the data plan but also your battery. However, when you are not using any of them, it is smart to turn off both.

Disable Unwanted Notifications
You get notifications and alerts for every other app that you have installed on your Android. IT is not necessary to let your apps sync all their data instantly and automatically. You can also do it manually or limit auto-sync feature to some of the important apps. This way, you can smartly manage your battery power.

Dim The Brightness
It is obvious that you don’t need all the brightness on your screen all the time, so keeping it to the maximum is not smart and it is not easy on eyes as well. Moreover, reducing the brightness of the screen can also save battery power. You can also use the auto-brightness feature to save your time and battery.

Ditch The Animation
All those live wallpapers and animation kills the battery power faster than you think. So trust me, it is not worth it! Don’t use live wallpaper, use black or dark background instead To minimize the animation, follow these steps:.
  • Go to Settings-> About phone->Device Information.
  • Locate Build Number and tap on it repeatedly, until you get the message that you are a developer.
  • Now go back to Settings, now you will see Developer Options. Tap on it.
  • Locate Animation Scale and you will get Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale.
  • The settings might be set at x1, turn of the animation for both the options.
  • This will not only increase the battery power but will also improve the performance of the device.

Use A Battery Saver App
Maintaining battery can be a tough nut to crack, so to simplify it, you can use battery saver apps. There are hundreds of apps listed on Google Play Store under this category. Choose one according to your preferences and use it to save the battery power of your Android phone.

So, these are the quick hacks and tips that could help your Android phone’s battery sustain a little longer.
