Meet Grandma Betty, The Internet’s Most Popular Grandma Ever | Orange rhymes with... | Scoop.it
I just love Grandma Betty who has become a worldwide Internet sensation. She is just so inspirational. Her grandson started her an Instagram social media account to document her last days, as she’s battling cancer. Before they realised, she became an Internet star. People are inspired by her charisma, positive outlook towards life and fun…
Jon Koob's insight:

InstaGrandma? Man social media is so powerful. The speed that people can help each other is so amazing. This woman was diagnosed with cancer, and now she has thousands and thousands of instagram followers that giver her love and inspiration-that may help her live a little bit longer. Beautiful.

Larry Page: Where's Google going next? - YouTube

Onstage at TED2014, Charlie Rose interviews Google CEO Larry Page about his far-off vision for the company. It includes aerial bikeways and internet balloons...
Jon Koob's insight:

Google's initial goal was to organize the world's information in a convenient way. Are they still doing that? Even their CEO, Larry Page, isn't quite sure. 


This is a great insight to Google and what their plans for the future are. If you thought Google Glass was cool, just wait until some of their new products and visions roll out. 


It's truly incredible that our generation is a part of the greatest technological stages of advancement in the history of mankind. People are going to look back on the late 90s and first decades of the 2000s as an ultimately revolutionary time in history. It's absolutely fascinating to think about.

Wren: Fall 2014 Video Fashion Week

Wren: Fall 2014 Video Fashion Week | Orange rhymes with... | Scoop.it
Ready-to-Wear concept film shorts from Video Fashion Week.
Jon Koob's insight:

This video is incredible. I came across it while doing a little digging in the fashion industry for a client today. Style.com put it together in an effort for Video Fashion Week.


20 strangers are brought together, and paired up-then they're asked to kiss one another. Some of the kisses are filled with so much damn passion and it's incredible that they were all strangers. Some of the kisses looked like they were between aged lovers. 


There's something really special about this video, and I hope you get something out of it.


*also the black and white filter along with the music add a nice touch

Confessions of Big Brand Social Media Managers - Digiday

A few social media managers set the record straight about the misconceptions versus the reality of being a social media manager today.
Jon Koob's insight:

"What do you actually do?" 


^^^the question I get the most about my job


It's something every social media manager has to undergo-which is honestly fair. The position hasn't even been around for the better part of a decade. The more and more people are online (whether it's their computers, phones, or tablets), the more companies are going to be wanting reliable social media managers who actually know what they're doing. 


I'm very fortunate that I work for a social media company in which everyone values each other's position.

How And Where To Buy Social Followers For Peanuts (And Totally Waste Your Money) [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter

How And Where To Buy Social Followers For Peanuts (And Totally Waste Your Money) [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter | Orange rhymes with... | Scoop.it

Want a million followers on Twitter?

Sure, who doesn’t, right? Good news! They can be yours for the absolute bargain price of $1,750. So, spend 50 times that amount, and you can instantly become the number one most-followed person on Twitter.

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, plenty. First of all, you’d be pouring your money down the toilet. There are plenty of third party services that will provide you with bucket loads of followers at a low, low price, but all of them – every single one – are a colossal waste of time. Because, for that oh-so-attractive price, all you get following you are bots, spammers, inactive accounts and, in some cases, other people like you. You know, the sort of folks who try to buy Twitter followers on the cheap.


Via Mau, John van den Brink
Jon Koob's insight:

Unbelievable Twitter infographic here. Being involved with Twitter pretty heavily for a while now, "fake followers" have always been a relevant idea to me. The way people do it, how much they cost, why people do it, etc. etc. I've never been a fan. 


But what do you know, some of the most relevant social media profiles in the world have fake followers, and a lot of them. The entire graphic is informational. Great thing to look at.

Kim Kardashian Might Have a Real Rival in Jen Selter

Kim Kardashian Might Have a Real Rival in Jen Selter | Orange rhymes with... | Scoop.it
The Instagram star (and her enviable rear end) just signed a multi-year endorsement deal.
Jon Koob's insight:

We've all seen it recently, the #FitFam #CrossTraining-like hashtags that have been taking over Instagram and Twitter. A new generation of extremely work out/gym active figures are popping up all over the place. But can they make money from the large followings they have?


The answer is yes. Exhibit A: Jen Selter


Selter popped up withing the last year with a LOT of Instagram and Twitter success. Most known for her butt, Selter has millions of Instagram followers and even started her own thing: Seltering (squatting in/on/in between crazy places in public). 


She just landed a huge contract. Which is the crazy part. Look for more things like this to happen.

Jon Koob's insight:

Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love gave one of my favorite performances from any actor-ever. Yes I know that's quite the statement (especially coming from me; okay just watch the movie and stop judging). This is a great piece though about how important knowing someone's story is. Also, knowing a businesses' story.

Well, someone had to win right? Amazing what Esurance did, and pretty genius. Over 5 MILLION people tweeted the hashtag #esurancesave30, raising all sorts of chaos throughout the Twittersphere. 


Fake accounts popped up all over claiming to "help people's chances" if they RT'd/Followed their account. It's safe to say all of the gullible people who did that really were idiots. 


John from Northern California tweeted ONCE. Now him, his wife, and baby on the way, are 1.5 million dollars richer.

Jonah Hill’s Shockingly Small 'Wolf of Wall Street' Payday

Jonah Hill’s Shockingly Small 'Wolf of Wall Street' Payday | Orange rhymes with... | Scoop.it
Donnie Azoff, the sidekick and confidante of amoral financial guru Jordan Belfort in "The Wolf of Wall Street," brings home million-dollar paychecks. But the check given to the actor who played him didn't have quite as many zeroes.
Jon Koob's insight:

This is actually kind of shocking. How could Jonah Hill not be getting paid at least a couple hundred thousands of dollars to be in such a film!? Obviously Leonardo is going to get the big bucks, but ONLY $60k for Jonah!? 


It's just really awesome that he took such a pay cut (for an actor like himself, obviously $60k is still a lot of money. The movie was awesome and if you haven't seen it yet, you need to. Worth the 3 hours of time. Yes, 3 hours.
