👍👎 YES or NO: Have you downloaded the new   #THREADS   app? 〰️ ​📸Last week,   #Facebook   launched Threads from   @instagram  . It's a new "camera-first messaging app" to help keep you connected with your closest friends on Instagram. 〰️ ​📲There's an "  #AutoStatus  " feature to keep your closest connections updated on your status as you move through the day. If you're concerned about privacy and location-tracking you may want to turn this feature off, but Instagram notes that the app itself was designed with privacy in mind. Here are three things to know about Auto statuses, as shown in the app: ​〰️ ​1️⃣ Only people on your close friends list can see your statuses ​〰️ ​2️⃣ Threads won't show the address or the name of a place in an auto status. Auto statuses will only show the type of place, like "at the movies" or "at home." ​〰️ ​3️⃣ Threads will know and update your status based on your location, movement, battery level, and network connection even when you're not using the app. 〰️ 🏞️Threads is based on simplified photo, video, message, status, and story sharing with your closest Instagram connections. As Instagram notes, "You are in control of who can reach you on Threads, and you can customize the experience around the people who matter most.⁣⁣⁣" The new app ​is available on both   #iOS   and   #Android  . ​​〰️ ​🤔What are your thoughts? Will you use it, or is it just another app that will collect virtual dust on your phone?

📣Have you heard that   #Instagram   is hiding photo LIKE counts in 7 different countries now? . 🌏The test started in 🇨🇦Canada and has now expanded to 🇮🇪Ireland 🇮🇹Italy 🇯🇵Japan 🇧🇷Brazil 🇦🇺Australia and 🇳🇿New Zealand. It hasn't rolled out to the United States yet...but I think it could be a welcome change! . 👀You can still see post likes on your own account, but audience members will no longer be able to see how many people have liked your photos! . ✨I've been talking about QUALITY vs. QUANTITY for awhile now, and this test/change by Instagram fits into that conversation. OF COURSE you want your content to resonate well with your audience, but attracting the RIGHT audience who regularly engages is better than having a HUGE audience that hardly even looks at your feed photos. The same can be said for post likes. How many of those well-liked photos are likes from spam accounts vs. real people? Now those fake likes won't matter as much to the outsiders looking in. . ❌Hiding likes may take some pressure off to be the most popular   @instagram   account on the block, and could even lessen anxiety for those who have a   #socialmedia   addiction or anxiety stemming from social media use. Your worth will no longer be measured in post likes visible to the world, instead the analytics will be for you to see and use as you see fit to keep on developing better content. . 👉What do you think? Will hiding post likes be a challenge for marketers and brands, or will it allow for more authentic content and less pressure on Instagram? I'd LOVE to hear  your thoughts so drop a comment and chime in! . . . 🎯   #mediamelanietips     #smm     #socialmediamarketing     #marketingdigital     #instagramtips     #instamarketing     #digital     #iot     #pressure     #anxiety     #mentalhealth     #socialmediausage     #instagramtips     #qualityvsquantity     #authenticity     #branding     #contentcreator     #content     #marketer     #mompreneur     #styledstocksociety     #ladyboss     #bossbabe     #slaytheday     #strategy     #marketingstrategy     #socialmediatips

👋WHY HELLO THERE,   #JULY  ! . 📅If you're looking for some   #content   inspo for the month, here are a few ideas to get your   #creative   juices flowing... . 🍉  #Summertime   is in full swing, so use it as a theme when creating   #socialmedia   posts, blogs, and email blasts. Don't be afraid to post an   #outofoffice   type of pic to show how you're slaying the whole   #worklifebalance   thing (if that fits with your brand)! . 🇺🇸  #JulyFourth   is a few days away. Express yourself with a creative fireworks or flag graphic made with   @canva  , or find a patriotic pic to post at   #Unsplash   or   #Pexels  --both are great sources for royalty-free photos. . 😍  #WorldEmojiDay   is July 17; get wild with the emojis and share some of your most-used in a post or story. . 🍦Post a shout-out to your favorite   #icecream   brand or local parlor anytime this month--it's   #NationalIceCreamMonth  , and   #NationalIceCreamDay   is on July 21! Tie it into summer to stick with a theme! If you're the boss, throw an 🍨ICE CREAM PARTY🎉to chalk up a win with your employees AND your social media followers. Photos of happy employees resonate well with everyone (and photos with faces can get up to 30% more engagement). . 🍴Eat al fresco and tag with   #NationalPicnicMonth   to share a summer food experience (if food is your thing). . 🐶Got a mutt at your home or dog-friendly office? Celebrate   #NationalMuttDay   on July 31 with an appreciation post for the mixed-breed furry family member in your life. . 🍁Looking ahead to   #fall   already? Start teasing new products or services now to get a jump on the next season. Try to have content outlined for AT LEAST the next month (or two) so you can plan ahead and get all of the pieces in place. . 📲What will you be posting about this month for yourself, business or brand? Feel free to TAG   @mediamelanie   so I can see what you're all up to during the month of July! . . . 🎯  #mediamelanietips     #smm     #socialmediamarketing     #inspo     #blogger     #socialmediatips     #marketingdigital     #content     #contentideas     #socialstrategy     #femaleentrepreneur     #girlboss     #ladyboss     #summergram

👁️‍🗨️Did you catch my last post?

🖼️Let’s talk feed aesthetic. When someone visits your   @Instagram   profile, do all of the posts convey a certain look, color, or composition? Are you using the same   #filter   for all of your posts? Do all of the posts make sense from a “big picture” standpoint? . 🎀Curating a branded look makes your feed appear more professional, helps to tell your story, and it just looks better when all of the photos fit into your overall content aesthetic. . 👀If you take a peek at the   @MediaMelanie   feed, you’ll notice a general color scheme -- mostly pink and turquoise. Sometimes I stray from it (not often), and when I do I still aim to have the image fit in with the theme of my feed and brand. I tell a story that relates to social media and entrepreneurship. . 💻I also keep a similar aesthetic on my website and other social media profiles to stay on-brand with my overall digital presence. . 👉🏼You’ve spent time scrolling on Instagram and have seen many feeds that inspire you to step-up your game, and then others, not-so-much. As with life, there will always be some better and some worse than yours. For a winning feed, stay true to yourself and brand while producing fresh, creative, engaging content that tells a visual story. . 🦄This photo is from the   #Unicorn   Entrepreneur collection by   @styledstocksociety  . I like to use   #styledstock   to enhance my online brand, and there are so many different collections available.

🎯   #MediaMelanieTips  : Nobody likes a fake! Unfortunately, many brands and influencers have continued to buy likes and followers. This activity gives a false sense of actual audience counts and   #engagement   and directly misleads “actual" followers--the people you SHOULD care about most. . ❌   @Instagram   is continuing its crackdown on fake followers and likes gained through third-party apps.   @SocialMediaToday   reported that Instagram has added new back-end   #code   with warning messages, one of which reads: . 📲“You may have shared your username and password with an app offering likes or followers. Using these apps goes against our %s, and continuing to do so may result in your account being further impacted.” . 🤷‍♀️ Don't be surprised to see this warning if you’ve shared login credentials with any third-party app designed to add followers and likes. . ✨I’ve always said and will continue to say that it’s quality, not quantity when it comes to social media. I’m happy to see the policing efforts continue to help combat the fakeness that runs rampant on Instagram. . 🗣️DO NOT BUY LIKES OR FOLLOWERS. Not only are you adding to the problem and misleading those who are actually interested in your product or brand, but there is the risk of getting your account shutdown if non-compliance continues. Is all of the hard work you’ve done in the digital world worth losing it all? . 👀If   #influencermarketing   is a tactic you’ve been looking into, be sure to properly vet them. Take a close look at the followers. Do they have profile photos? Are they ghost accounts with no content? Are the profiles in a different language? Are the comments under the most-liked photos legitimate, or are they clearly spammy? Do your research before signing-on with any influencer, big or small! . ☠️As I said at the start of this post-NOBODY LIKES A FAKE... . . .   #smm     #socialmedia     #socialmediatips     #socialmediamarketing     #branding     #fake     #thirdparty      #apps     #digitalmarketing     #business     #marketingtips     #consultant     #influencers     #sandiegosocialmedia     #smallbiz     #contentmarketing     #leadership     #entrepreneurship     #smallbusiness     #marketing     #ladyboss     #girlboss     #slaying     #marketingdigital     #entrepreneur

🗣️Repeat after me:   #SELFCARE   IS NOT SELFISH! . ✨I've been posting about this a lot in 2019, as I've embarked on a meaningful path to self-care and continue to   #prioritize   it. . 😌Taking care of our minds, bodies & relationships (w/ourselves & others) is so important. Unfortunately, it can fall to the wayside when times get tough, schedules get busy and stress starts to manifest. . 🚧 The most difficult hurdle for me is the guilt. First is the internal guilt for taking more time to do things that I value and make me feel good, because that time COULD be spent on other activities (working, playground, cleaning...). Then there's the PERCEIVED guilt I feel from other people who make me feel "selfish" or are maybe jealous because they aren't able to make self-care or planning   #meaningfulmoments   or   #journeys   a priority (this part may not ACTUALLY exist...but I still feel it). . ✌️I'm working on letting guilt go and accepting that it's (more than) OKAY to take care of myself in positive ways-it helps me be my best self for others. I haven't been consistent in this area but have stepped-up my game a lot this year. We only get one life, so I'm making each moment count. . 🍍I posted this pic because I'm taking my self-care to the next level and taking myself on   #vacation   to   #HAWAII   next month! One of my   #besties  ,   @cbrstar  , is coming with and it will be wonderful. . ✈️Due to delayed   @southwestair   flights last   #summer  , I got $1,000 in vouchers which paid for my ticket! The   @airbnb   we booked looks incredible ➕ we'll visit my childhood friend,   @joshua  .7946, who grew up in my hometown, lived here in   #SanDiego   and now lives on   #Oahu  . If we're lucky he'll take us out on a ⛵-fingers crossed! . 🍹This will be the   #SummerofMelanie  . FOLLOW the hashtag to stay up on my   #adventures  ! . 🎉I'm also turning 39 in June, so part of the trip is to celebrate the last year in my 30s. . 👉Comment w/1️⃣ thing you've done recently to   #indulge   in self-care.
