Exciting Launch of IGTV Instagram New Vertical TV APP – This Is Huge

 

 

 

 

Today was a very exciting day for Instagram and the many creators that have anticipated the launch of their new Vertical Video Platform app. It is now available for download. This app was designed so that you can watch long-form, vertical videos from your favorite Instagram creators.

 

IGTV is different than your typical video experience. Videos are full-screen and vertical without any black boxes on the side, so you never have to rotate your phone. And IGTV videos aren’t limited to a minute, which means you can see more of your favorite content.

The Video content opportunity is wide open and still in its infancy stages.

Just recently Youtube stated that the amount of channels that are earning six figures on their platform  has increased over 40% year-over-year. Twitter & snapchat have implemented the ability to share video on their platform.  Instagrams newly launched stand-alone app will allow users to post longer videos. The app is a mobile TV platform that takes elements from YouTube, Snapchat and other platforms and combines them all in one place.  This is huge!

If you are not using video for your business then you are missing out. The time to start is now! You can be one of the first to get in on this new IGTV platform. Online video is creating a new career path that did not exist until just a few years ago.  Jump in now while it is in the early stages.

I was so excited today after the launch kept watching for it to become available for download. I was #1021 person to download the app!   At first use I think that this new platform is outstanding. The app did shut down on me once and had a few glitches, as expected with any new launch. I am very impressed and absolutely love it.

 

I plan to utilize this platform now while it is brand new.  I am hosting a live Business tip Channel for Business owners and Online Marketers. I am very excited about this opportunity.  Come on over and watch my channel @inspired.by.terry IGTV!

Meet The Woman Building Facebook’s eBay-Killer

 

FaceBook Marketplace is one of the more recent responsibilities at Facebook for Liu , and something she’s been heading towards through a career that spanned roles at eBay and PayPal.

“I gave up all my other projects to focus on this,” she says. She has been working with Groups for a year and a half while planning on building a separate platform. The platform is experimenting with machine-learning and computer vision to enable easier listing for marketplace sellers and offering no fees generating revenue by offering promoted postings and ads services for businesses that appear within the Marketplace. It has been reported that over 600 million people across 70 countries are using the Marketplace each month.

Facebook outranks Ebay with users and the Marketplace poses an obvious challenge for both Craigslist and eBay, and note that eBay reported only 9% revenue increase currently,  while sellers continue to close up shop moving over to other platforms.  Facebook Marketplace growth is exploding.  Now Ebay sellers have a choice and that choice is easily determined by having the option of not paying the increasing seller fees with eBay, while being able to offer products to a much larger audience. I am all for saving 10% final value fees with eBay and the paypal fees.  No fees will be a “no-brainer” for me!

Co-Working Membership Spaces Are The Newest Trend

Remote and freelance working positions have grown to 3.9 million Americans or 2.9% of the total US workforce who work from home at least half the time and flexjobs predicts that more than one-third of employees will work remotely in the next 10 years.

My position in sales and management was a full-time home based position way back in the late 1990’s when these positions were rare to find. Remote work was wonderful and offered many perks,  but it certainly had its challenges , isolation, loud pets, kids, chores and constant interuptions, not to mention the missed connections we once had with colleagues in the office.  In recent years a solution has been available that offers us the opportunity to rent a shared workspace called Co-working space, and this trend is booming.

Co-working spaces and thier memberships have grown from as few as 70 documented businesses in 2007,  to 1.5 million worldwide. It is projected that this trend is going to grow as much as 5 million by 2020. Why is it so popular? It solves all of those problems and give you many perks.  With some memberships, they offer shared equipment, events, the convenience of grabbing a quick snack and beverage all at your fingertips. But most of all it is the community and connections that people crave that has made this business boom! I recently saw a news clip on CBS Sunday Morning which you will find below.  Have you tried a co-working space in your area? Let me know what you liked about it in the comments below.

Futuristic Apps That Read Our Emotions and Smart Cosmetics To play Up or Conceal Emotions

Privacy will soon be a thing of the past.  I am a little freaked out learning some of the things that Artificial intelligence technology can do. I recently came across a post from Ohio State University that conducted a study on human Emotion detection.

Get in on the Pre-launch Offer Here

A machine that can dive in and detect how we are feeling may seem like something we once watched in a movie, but it’s a technical skill that is available now. In March of this year, researchers from the Ohio State University created an algorithm that could detect one of eighteen emotions ranging from “happily surprised” to “fearfully disgusted” based on changes of the color of a person’s face. The algorithm was able to pick out “happiness” with 90% accuracy.   They even mention that there is a possibility of “smart” cosmetics to play up certain emotions—or conceal them in the near future!

The researchers are patenting the computer algorithms, and hope they will enable future forms of artificial intelligence to recognize and emulate human emotions. They have also formed a spin-off company, Online Emotion, to commercialize the research. Be sure to check out both links for more detailed information.

Have you ever started a DIY project only to find that you are missing a part or a screw?  I have used Google Goggles, ( AKA,  the first great experiment in smartphone AR),  in the past for this sort of thing and it is has been amazing.  I have found things at yard sales, scanned the item,  and boom google found out what it was for me.  So having this sort of feature will be awesome on the largest online shopping place in the world!

Have You Tried Facebook Spaces? – Oculus Rift – Social VR Demonstration

Have you tried Facebook Spaces? Virtual Reality is going to offer us many experiences like we’ve never had before.

So far this app allows you to Hang out with your friends in a fun, interactive virtual environment as if you were in the same room, no matter where you are.
Facebook has included content that can transport you, through 360 video and Pictures to experience new places.

This can offer all kinds of possibilities for a business. Imagine setting up a virtual store that can offer the experience as if you are actually in the store looking around in Virtual Reality but with the convenience of online shopping.

New towers are being installed across the United States as we speak in order to prepare for VR & AR technology that will be offering NEW 5G data speeds for our mobile phones and devices in 2019. 🤔

For those of you that may be asking, “What is VR & AR?”, virtual reality, enables you to swim in the ocean viewing sea-life as if you were deep sea diving, and augmented reality allows you to watch a jack-in-the-box pop out of your business card.

I am so excited! My mind is spinning with possibilities!😮
