Brands have spent a lot of time, money and resources building up their social media presence. Now they are looking at how to monetize it in a way that’s recognized by the business.
Your behavior is packed with data that can be utilized to maximize your digital security. IBM researchers are looking at the unique behaviors of individuals to develop the next generation of privacy and protection. They predict that in five years, a “digital guardian” will protect you online. As a result, security will no longer be dependent on vulnerable modes of protection like passwords, but will be automatic and made stronger through us just being us. Check out the video here.

In the future will there be a “Digital Guardian?”
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.

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.
