The debate - Unfriend or Unfollow? It’s happening on Facebook. After a long wait, you will soon be able to unfollow friends whose updates you’d like to remove from your newsfeed. The new feature will replace the “Hide All” button, freeing your Facebook newsfeed of the unwanted or meaningless rants by your friends. The “Unfollow Button” will be available to desktop users in the coming weeks and on Facebook’s mobile apps for iOS and Android next year.

Yesterday Singapore Airlines announced plans to upgrade its existing First Class suites and seats designed by BMW Group. Not that they needed upgrading, but it goes to show, Singapore Airlines sets the bar high when it comes to its level of style, service and professionalism. The upgraded design will offer mood-enhancing ambiance with lavish lounge-like interiors that not only spell out luxury, but also ensure added levels of privacy, comfort and increased storage space. Couple this with SQ’s unparalleled service, and you have the perfect setting for those dreaded long-haul flights.

Bringing Instagram to Life with @joselourenco

With small pieces of cardboard and a dash of acrylic paint, Portuguese artist José Lourenço (@joselourenco) is bringing the Instagram app to life.

Nine weeks ago, José posted his first play on Instagram symbology—a simple screenshot of the comment, like and follow notification that he captioned “two hearts.” He liked that first post so much that he started thinking of ways to bring Instagram design elements into three dimensions. With the introduction of Photos of You, the idea really took flight. José created custom Photos of You labels for the clouds, houses, trees and even giraffes.

For José, these posts add a new angle to the way he shares the world around him. “With the symbols I can create new universes and recreate elements of world history like Atlantis and The Thinker.” He is always looking for the right scene to match his designs: “The symbols are all designed at scale for the scene I photograph or video and are very light and easy to carry around. Yes, I carry the symbols with me all the time!” To see more of José’s creations, be sure to follow him @joselourenco on Instagram.
