Snapchat Spectacles: Newest Popular Must-Have Gadget

Snapchat Spectacles in black - review

 

While at an event for one of our clients, we met a PR team trying Snapchat Spectacles for the first time.  They come in a case and look different from typical fashion sunglasses.  You can almost tell there is a technological feel to the glasses.  They have holes to the side of each lens where the cameras are which create a “fishbowl” like image.

The sunglasses sync with your Snapchat allowing you to truly take the memory you “see” and store it.  You can take up to 10 second videos via your specs. The good news, by taking photos and videos with your Snapchat Spectacles, you won’t automatically post images nor videos to your snapchat, they will go to a holding folder (the Memories section).  Then you can choose which photos/videos you want to keep.  Once in the memories folder, you can edit photos just as you usually would adding stickers, filters, doodles and more before snapping them.

Digital Daily – Tip #10 – Linkedin Headers

Helpful tips and advice on a yellow office noteLinkedin is consistently growing and a must have for all career driven professionals.  As the site has grown, the ability to customize has also expanded.  If you haven’t noticed, go into your own profile and you will see a spot at the top to add a top header photo.  You may not think of Linkedin as a place to be “artistic” or colorful even.  This is your time to set your profile apart from the many others on the site.

Linkedin gives you some possible headers to choose from or to upload your own.  When you’re designing the header banner, make sure it is a jpeg, png, or gif that is less than 4 MB in size.  The dimensions are 1400 X 425.  One important part is the top part of your profile with your profile image is sitting over this header.  When you’re designing the header, leave space in the middle-bottom part as it will be covered by the profile.

This is the time for you to have a strong personal brand.  This represents you.  It can give you the exposure to help make a great first impression.
