15 Hidden Snapchat Hacks & Features You'll Wish You Knew About Sooner

15 Hidden Snapchat Hacks & Features You'll Wish You Knew About Sooner | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Snapchat, the one-to-one messaging app with more than 150 million daily active users, has earned a reputation for fast growth and innovation.


But despite its success, it isn't the most user-friendly app I've ever played around with. Many of its best features are so buried within the app that a lot of people don't even know they exist. In March 2016, Snapchat added even more features in their release of a new version, and some of these features have totally reshaped how people use the app in the first place.


For example, did you know that you can use Snapchat to make a live video call? Or that you can add emojis to your Snapchat videos -- and make it so they move and scale with specific objects? What about the trick where you can save data by turning the app on to "travel mode"?


There are a whole lot of cool things you can do with Snapchat that you may not have known about. But before we jump into them, it's important that you know the basics.


Already have the basics down? Read on for some more advanced tips and features.


Note: Before getting started, make sure you're operating on the latest version of Snapchat. At the time of posting, the latest version is 9.33.0.0....

60+ Ideas for How To Be A Creative Thought Leader – Cool PREZI Included! - The Future of Ink

60+ Ideas for How To Be A Creative Thought Leader – Cool PREZI Included! - The Future of Ink | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
Being recognized as a Creative Thought Leader in your niche takes you from being “just another expert to expert” to being someone who really stands out.

I can deliver marketing formulas (or what I call marketing prescriptions) all day long.  But it’s not enough to just “do marketing” – you want to make it engaging, educational, inspirational and personally compelling.

You can have incredible content but if no one pays attention, if you are lost in the crowd – it won’t help your message, your business or all those people you want to reach. You’ll be a “best kept secret.”  We don’t want that!

Surf Art: A brief history of surfing design & culture - The Creative Edge

Surf Art: A brief history of surfing design & culture - The Creative Edge | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

To understand the development of surf art, you need to understand the development of the surfboard—a paradigmatic design object in itself, with an amazing history in the 20th century.


The guys (mostly denizens of Californian and Hawaiian beaches) who developed the surfboard as we know it were often social outsiders. Behind the clean lines and perfectionism of their boards was a desire to create a lifestyle outside of the normal working man’s routine. So it’s no surprise that surfing design eventually blossomed into the hyper-expressive and offbeat style that we now know.


But let’s start at the beginning to see how this awesome story unfolded....

Conquer Keyword Research with These 10 Tools | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Is it really that important? Believe it or not, I speak with people all the time who never conduct keyword research. They don’t see the point in doing so and there are many reasons for this:


- They already know their two or three primary keywords.


- They don’t believe in the power of long-tail keywords.


- They are under the impression that it costs too much time and money.


If you continually utter these excuses, you’ll never conduct keyword research in the appropriate manner. Subsequently, your website will never reach its full potential.


In this post, I hope to show just how simple it can be to conquer keyword research. More specifically, I’m going to discuss 10 tools that can help you reach your goals....

Lessons from the plagiarism in Melania Trump's speech - without bullshit

Lessons from the plagiarism in Melania Trump's speech - without bullshit | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Parts of Melania Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention are strikingly similar to Michelle Obama’s speech from eight years ago. How does this happen? Plagiarism at this level is typically the result of sloppiness, not outright theft. If you don’t want this to happen to you, then you need to change how you work.


What Melania Trump said sounds awfully familiar.


In 2008, here’s what Michelle Obama said, in part (most of the highlights in these passages, which show the similar parts, are from a Wall Street Journal article about the plagiarism).


Like my family, they scrimped and saved so that he could have opportunities they never had themselves. And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.


And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation.


Because we want our children—and all children in this nation—to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them....

Two researchers are calling for rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA (ecstasy) to identify exactly how the drug promotes strong feelings of empathy, according to a Commentary in the journal Cell. Such research may help researchers develop new therapeutic compounds, particularly for autism and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

MDMA is described as an “empathogen,” a compound that promotes feelings of empathy and close positive social feelings in users. The drug is a strictly regulated Schedule I compound, a category reserved for substances with no accepted medical use and high abuse potential.

How to Use Snapchat: A Detailed Look Into HubSpot’s Snapchat Strategy

How to Use Snapchat: A Detailed Look Into HubSpot’s Snapchat Strategy | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

Snapchat is now known as a platform for individuals and brands -- one that allows users to create quick, lighthearted, and even educational video content without using valuable production resources. For brands, this means a new opportunity to show off their culture, share knowledge, and connect with their audience in a new and exciting way.


After reporting more than 100 million daily active users, and over 8 billion video views a day, we decided to give it a go: The official HubSpot Snapchat account launched in March 2016.

Don't feel guilty for keeping your eyes and ears open to what other creatives are doing, especially if it's the work they're most proud of: these pieces have the potential to take your own work to places where it's never been before!
