The Deeper Meaning of Emojis: What You Need to Know on How Social Media is Changing Communication - The Buffer Blog | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The Oxford English Dictionary’s word of the year for 2015 was in fact not a word. It was the ‘Face with Tears of Joy’ emoji. This one >

10 Hilarious Posts From Advertising's Funniest Instagrammer

10 Hilarious Posts From Advertising's Funniest Instagrammer | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
You might think Instagram is all about photography. Not so, says David Kolbusz.


"Instagram is a writer's medium," the creative director declares at the top of his feed. And he makes a good case for that with his posts—a hodgepodge of everyday shots brought to life with hilariously twisted, ranty, profanity-laced captions. 


Kolbusz frequently tees off on society's ills, harboring a particular distaste for idiotic technological "advancements." (Recent recurring targets include selfie sticks and hoverboards.) But some of the best posts are almost like short stories, as Kolbusz invents a whole ludicrous backstory to the image presented. Check out a handful of our favorite posts below....

Here's what Instagram can be if you're creative.

A new Chrome extension completely filters Donald Trump off your internet

A new Chrome extension completely filters Donald Trump off your internet | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Donald Trump can be entirely banned from the internet using a Chrome extension.

The software analyses websites for the use of his name and stops access to any website that contains it.

Its creator says that the tool hasn’t just been created to filter out the often incendiary pronouncements of the presidential candidate — but in the hope of broadening the debate, too.

"I hope folks will take this opportunity to learn more about the wide field of candidates out there," Rob Spectre, who created the Trump Filter, told CNN. The extension could allow people to actually learn about the issues that are at stake in the race to be the Republican candidate for president, he said....

Most useful app of 2016 already!

Friday Funnies #192 Nun Grading Papers

Friday Funnies #192 Nun Grading Papers | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

As you know I get most of my jokes for Friday Funnies in my inbox. Today’s Friday Funnies isn’t so much a joke as it’s the funny things that some kids came up with at a Catholic elementary school test.


Can you imagine a nun sitting at her desk grading these papers , all the while trying to keep a straight face and maintain her composure!


Pay special attention to the wording and spelling . If you know the Bible even a little, you'll find this hilarious!


It comes from a Catholic elementary school test. Kids were asked questions about the Old and New Testament.


The following 25 statements about the Bible were written by children. They have not been retouched or corrected. Incorrect spelling has been left in....

Writers and bloggers take note. Friday Funnies indeed.

The 25 Funniest Brand Twitter Accounts You Should Be Following

The 25 Funniest Brand Twitter Accounts You Should Be Following | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

In 140 characters or less, brands on Twitter have given themselves a bad name. It's not exactly hard to understand why—from a series of Twitter missteps, to overused, lazy jokes or their persistent desire from some brands to insert themselves in conversations they don't belong in.


Why even bother following a brand's Twitter account?


Every so often a brand gets it right. Some demonstrate quick thinking during real-time events, as seen by Oreo's famous dunk in the dark Super Bowl tweet. Others use quick wit to win people over, think Arby's Grammy tweet pointing out the resemblance between its own logo and Pharrell's hat.

Then there are brands such as Totinos and DiGiorno Pizza that crack absurb and silly jokes at unexpected times to garner laughs and followers. Totinos tallies 77,400 Twitter followers, while DiGiorno has racked up 93,100. Take a look at funniest brand accounts in the video above that may even have the power lighten up that dark, brand-hating soul of yours....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Some very funny brand Tweeters here. Enjoy!
