Washington (USA): Following the blogging platform’s most recent action, Instagram’s efforts to rival TikTok are intensifying.

According to a screenshot shared on Twitter by Matt Navarra, Instagram has started experimenting with turning every video uploaded to the platform into a reel to increase its reach on Facebook and Instagram.

“We are testing this feature as part of our efforts to simplify and improve the video experience on Instagram,” a Meta spokesperson said.

In August 2020, Instagram Reels debuted in the United States. Reels’ short video format received a ton of engagement.

According to the snapshot, “video posts are now shared as reels.” Instagram believes that by encouraging all videos to become Reels, the videos will have greater engagement, have access to video effects, and be able to add music and be remixed into new Reels.

The modification is being evaluated, and it is not known if it will last. It’s also unclear what will happen to Instagram videos already posted, and whether you’ll still be able to upload 10-minute videos (or up to 60 minutes on verified accounts), as reported by GSM Arena.

Adam Mosseri, Instagram’s CEO, said the platform was “no longer a photo-sharing app” about a year ago since it focused on “creators, video , retail and courier”. (ANI)

Want to up the transparency game on social media: Aprameya Radhakrishna, Koo https://metalhey.com/want-to-up-the-transparency-game-on-social-media-aprameya-radhakrishna-koo/ Mon, 27 Jun 2022 03:15:10 +0000 https://metalhey.com/want-to-up-the-transparency-game-on-social-media-aprameya-radhakrishna-koo/ After Elon Musk’s Twitter offering was reportedly suspended due to threats over lack of information about fake accounts, the issue of bot traffic on social platforms has once again taken center stage.

After Elon Musk’s Twitter offering was reportedly suspended due to threats over lack of information about fake accounts, the issue of bot traffic on social platforms has once again taken center stage. Twitter, for its part, claimed that fake Twitter accounts accounted for less than 5% of its users. Based on these developments, Koo, the Indian microblogging site, claims that it is working to provide a genuine alternative that addresses bot traffic issues.

Aprameya Radhakrishna, co-founder and CEO of Koo, told exchange4media that the more authentic a platform is, the more valuable it is to users, advertisers and the entire ecosystem.

“When you say something as a creator, you expect real people, real comments, and real emotions to interact with you. And when you’re not too sure whether the responses you’re getting are real or no, authentic or not, it becomes a problem,” says Radhakrishna.

Talking about the need for more transparency on social platforms, he added that Koo, as a platform, goes out of its way to ensure that it remains transparent about anything.

“We have introduced a voluntary self-verification process, which means that if you as a user care about the network you are part of and want others to know that you are a genuine person and a voice on the platform, so you go ahead and check it yourself. This enhances the game’s authenticity of the platform. And because of the number of people doing it, any time a creator or advertiser wants to reach that audience, a platform that demonstrates authenticity always gets a lot more value, not just perceptually, but on the actual value. Businesses that advertise on a real network will obviously get more visits,” he added.

When asked how brands react to Koo’s offers, Radhakrishna said that being At just two years old, the platform was still looking for user engagement and growth. “But we do it transparently and consistently. So everyone knows what we are building.

He also thinks that whenever Koo opens channels for businesses to come and advertise, it will be taken much more seriously than others.

When asked if India is on the cusp of giving the world its next big social platform, Koo’s founder said that given the pace of innovation, India-based tech offerings are set to capture the global imagination in times to come.

“India will build hundreds and thousands of apps, for the Indian use case. Few of these will capture the imagination of the world. In China, thousands of apps have been created over the course of the last decade, TikTok and Zoom have taken the imagination to the next level and the whole world is using them. Likewise in India, we’re going to build it within the Indian context. For example, in Koo, we’re building within the framework of the expression in local languages. Now there are several countries in the world where several local languages ​​are spoken, which will also apply to all these countries,” he added.

China’s withdrawal as host of the 2023 Asian Cup leaves netizens wondering, “Will these newly built stadiums become Covid quarantine hubs instead?” These are the ten stages which not be used for next year’s Asian Cup.

NOTThe news that China will no longer host the 2023 Asian Cup due to the Covid situation has left Chinese netizens wondering what will happen to the mega venues built specifically for the event.

On Saturday May 14, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) released a statement stating that following lengthy discussions with the Chinese Football Association (CFA), it had been informed by the CFA that it would not be able to host the 2023 AFC Asian Cup. due to the circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event was scheduled to take place from June 16 to July 16, 2023 in ten Chinese cities: Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Chongqing, Chengdu, Xi’an, Dalian, Qingdao, Xiamen and Suzhou.

On Weibo, a popular article listed ten stadiums that have been renovated or newly built to host the 2023 Asian Cup, adding the alleged (mind-blowing) construction/renovation costs.

1. Xiamen Bailu Stadium: costs 3.5 billion [$515.5 million].
2. Qingdao Youth Football Stadium: costs 3.2 billion [$470 million].
3. Chongqing Longxing Stadium: costs 2.7 billion [$397.7 million].
4. Xi’an International Football Center: costs 2.395 billion [$352.7 million].
5. Dalian Suoyuwan Football Stadium: costs 1.88 billion [$277 million].
6. Chengdu Phoenix Hill Stadium: costs 1.865 billion [$274.7 million].
7. SAIC Motor Pudong Arena: costs 1.807 billion [$266 million].
8. Suzhou Kunshan Football Stadium: Costs 1.6 billion [$235.6 million].
9. Tianjin Binhai Football Stadium: the renovation cost 320 million [$47 million].
10. New Gongti Stadium in Beijing: the renovation cost 280 million [$41.2 million].

All of these stadiums were built or renovated for the Asian Cup on a tight schedule, as there was only a three-year lead time from design to completion of construction. In the summer of 2019, it was confirmed that China would host the Asian Cup.

Now that these venues will no longer be used for the Asian Cup, many netizens are wondering what will happen to them.

One of the most popular answers to this question was, “Maybe they should be turned into makeshift hospitals [fangcang].”

Fangcang, China’s makeshift “square cabin” hospitals, are seen as a key solution in China’s fight against the virus. With mass testing and local lockdowns, Fangcang has become an important phenomenon in China’s dynamic zero-Covid policy.

Since every city needs quarantine places to prepare for a possible local outbreak, many people half-joke that the sites would be more useful as Covid isolation points if they are not in use anyway for the Asian Cup.

“So many big stadiums, what a waste,” write some commentators, with others suggesting stadiums should be open for people to use and enjoy.

In response to China’s withdrawal as host of the 2023 Asian Cup, another popular comment said, “China has taken the lead in reaching Zero in major sporting events”, jokingly referring to the country’s Zero-Covid policy which is currently impacting all aspects of society.

For others, the announcement that China would not host the Asian Cup came as a shock. Not necessarily because of the cancellation of the event itself, but because it made them realize that China’s strict measures and the Zero-Covid policy should continue until 2023: “How is did we get there? I thought the country would open up after the general assembly,” one person wrote, referring to the National Communist Party Congress which is scheduled for fall 2022.

Another Weibo user wrote, “They finally said it. The Asian Cup will be hosted by another country because our strong country will continue to remain closed, the money spent on building all these venues is going to be wasted.

“The point many people missed is that the Asian Cup is no longer held in China because China refuses to hold the event in ‘fully open mode’ as requested by foreign countries,” wrote another commentator. Some people hailed the decision, calling it “courageous” for China to persist in handling the pandemic in its own way.

Others hope that all the money spent on the venues will not be wasted and that China can use these venues to host the World Cup in the future.

Below is the list of ten new venues where the Asian Cup will not take place.

1. Xiamen Bailu Stadium (厦门白鹭体育场)

Bailu Stadium in Xiamen is an impressive construction with a steel structure similar to Beijing’s Bird’s Nest and like most of the stadiums on this list, it was designed especially for the 2023 Asian Cup.

Scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022, the building not only offers a beautiful sea view, it is also fully multifunctional and has a floor area of ​​180,600 square meters and a capacity of 60,000 seats. It is the first professional football stadium in China that can change from a football field to a sports field. The inner and outer circles of the seating area can be moved around to transform the stadium.

2. Qingdao Youth Football Stadium (青岛青春足球场)

Qingdao Youth Football Stadium, a high-level football stadium with a capacity of 50,000, is the first major professional football stadium in Shandong Province.

The stadium, located in the city’s Chengyang district, began construction in 2020, and the entire stadium with an area of ​​163,395 square meters is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

3. Chongqing Longxing Stadium (重庆龙兴体育场)

Like most of the other stadiums on this list, Chongqing Longxing Stadium started construction in 2020, and the 60,000 capacity football stadium is expected to be completed in December 2022.

The design of the stadium is based on a twirling flame, intended to convey the hot image of Chongqing (the hotpot city) and the burning passion of Asian Cup football. Aerial photos released by state media in March 2022 show that construction of the roof and decorations has reached the final stages.

4. Xi’an International Football Center (西安国际足球中心)

The Xi’an International Football Center is a project by Zaha Hadid, which is the same architectural firm to design prestigious buildings in China such as the Beijing Daxing International Airport or the Galaxy SOHO.

On their site, they write that the football center, the construction of which began in 2020, is a 60,000-seater stadium in the new district of Xi’ans Fengdong. Besides the arena, the stadium will also provide recreational spaces for the city.

5. Dalian Suoyuwan Football Stadium (大连梭鱼湾足球场)

Located on Dalian Bay, this is a spectacular new 63,000-seater stadium which was obviously set to host the AFC Asian Cup in 2023 and be home to Dalian Professional Football Club.

An animation of the Dalian Football Stadium design can be viewed here.

6. Chengdu Phoenix Hill Stadium (成都凤凰山体育场)

Chengdu Phoenix Hill Stadium consists of a 60,000-seat stadium and an 18,000-seat standard arena. The large open-cable dome structure is said to be the first of its kind in China.

Besides football, the site will also be able to host other major tournaments, including ice hockey, badminton, table tennis, handball and gymnastics.

7. SAIC Motor Pudong Arena (上汽浦东足球场)

Shanghai Pudong Football Stadium, currently named SAIC Motor Pudong Arena, was supposed to be one of the stadiums used for the AFC Asian Cup, but it was not necessarily built for this purpose.

The 33,765-seater stadium, which is supposed to remind you of a Chinese porcelain bowl, is home to football association Shanghai Port FC and was the first club-designated dedicated football stadium in China. Its construction, started in 2018, was completed at the end of 2020.

8. Suzhou Kunshan Football Stadium (苏州昆山足球场)

Suzhou Kunshan Football Stadium is Jiangsu’s first professional football stadium. With a total construction area of ​​135,000 square meters, the stadium can accommodate around 45,000 spectators.

The design of the building is inspired by the traditional Chinese “folding fan”. Other photos of the place can be seen here.

9. Tianjin Binhai Football Stadium (天津滨海足球场)

The TEDA Football Stadium in Tianjin has been completely renovated and upgraded to host the 2023 Asian Cup. The stadium, built in 2004, originally accommodated 37,450 people. Renovations to the original stadium began this year and the construction work was expected to take around six months.

ten . Beijing New Gongti Stadium (新北京工体)

The former Beijing Workers’ Stadium or Gongti was closed in 2020 to be renovated and reopened in December 2022, in time for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup. The Pekingese reported on the venue’s renovation process, with the stadium’s capacity increasing to 68,000, with the venue benefiting from an all-new roof structure.

Twitter launches long-form ‘Notes’ blog option, attached to tweets https://metalhey.com/twitter-launches-long-form-notes-blog-option-attached-to-tweets/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 20:18:29 +0000 https://metalhey.com/twitter-launches-long-form-notes-blog-option-attached-to-tweets/ It’s been in testing for a while, and today Twitter finally launched its new ‘Notes’ option on selected user profiles, which provides an easy and integrated way to attach longer text elements to your tweets.

It’s been in testing for a while, and today Twitter finally launched its new ‘Notes’ option on selected user profiles, which provides an easy and integrated way to attach longer text elements to your tweets.

As you can see in this example, the Notes user interface is pretty basic, with all the regular elements of a blog post composer, including the ability to include header images, insert images and links in the text, and a simplified option for adding tweets.

Once posted, the notes will appear as a Twitter card, linking users to the full post – here’s an example shared by Matt Navarra:

Tap on it and you are redirected to the full text:

Beta Twitter Notes

Note titles are limited to 100 characters, and the body of a note can be up to 2,500 words, giving you a lot more room for your longer content in the app.

And unlike tweets, note writers will be able to edit their notes after they’re posted, with an “Edited” tag added to the top of the note.

What seems so simple – an “edited” label. Imagine that on real tweets.

Finally, Notes will also have unique URLs that users can navigate to from outside the Twitter platform, “whether or not they’re logged into Twitter, and even if they don’t have a Twitter account.” . This will facilitate wider sharing activity and might make it a more valuable long form option.

Potentially.

Twitter is trying to integrate its own blog-like platform for years, in order to meet the needs of users who end up tweeting either long tweet threads or adding text screenshots to their tweets.

Indeed, in 2016, when Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Explain that this company was looking at potential options to allow longer messages in tweets (which ultimately resulted in the extending tweet length to 280 characters) he used a screenshot of the text to communicate his logic.

add sound native Threads option has provided additional capacity on this front, while Twitter has also newsletter platform purchased Review Last yearwhich it now invites users to try if they want to post longer text updates.

Notes will expand on the same – but it remains to be seen whether users really want or need to post longer content like this directly to Twitter itself, or whether they’d be better off redirecting users to their own websites and WordPress. blogs, where they can collect visitor data, serve ads, and more, in an item they control.

I mean, it’s clear that sometimes there’s a need for longer content options on Twitter – but will writers really want to post directly to Twitter, given that most have probably already established their audiences via Twitter? other tools?

Apple’s ATT update has also made more people consider first-party data and the value of creating a direct connection, independent of social platforms and digital providers, and in that sense, Twitter Notes seems a bit outdated or inappropriate.

But still, it could provide new promotional opportunities – and it will also be interesting to see if Twitter users themselves want to read longer native tweet blog posts, which will be the real story at the end.

Right now, though, Twitter says Notes won’t see an algorithmic improvement and won’t get any sort of priority over regular tweets. So the value doesn’t seem huge, but hopefully Twitter will share usage data soon.

The Twitter Notes option will be made available to a select group of writers, as chosen by Twitter, to begin with.

Social media slams Rahul Dravid for Rishabh Pant comments https://metalhey.com/social-media-slams-rahul-dravid-for-rishabh-pant-comments/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 06:04:06 +0000 https://metalhey.com/social-media-slams-rahul-dravid-for-rishabh-pant-comments/ Fans have been furious with Indian coach Rahul Dravid’s comments on Rishabh Pant’s chances of taking part in the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.

Fans have been furious with Indian coach Rahul Dravid’s comments on Rishabh Pant’s chances of taking part in the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. The 24-year-old who captained the Men in Blue in the recently concluded T20I series against South Africa looked thoroughly uncomfortable with the bat in all five home matches. Due to his poor batting performance, Rishabh Pant was heavily criticized by both fans and former cricketers. Some of India’s cricketing legends including Sunil Gavaskar, Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan have even questioned his place in India’s T20I team. Irfan Pathan has gone so far as to claim his non-inclusion in the national team for the T20 World Cup Down Under. But Rahul Dravid backed Rishabh Pant to deliver the goods for India and said there was no threat to his place in the team.

“In the process (of playing an offensive game) he can go wrong in a few games, but he remains an integral part of our batting team with the power he has, and the fact that he is left-handed is important for us. in the middle he played good shots,” Rahul Dravid said on Sunday.

“Personally, he would have liked to score a few more points but that does not concern him. He is certainly a very big part of our plans for the next few months, ”added the former batsman who has more than 13,000 Tests under his belt. .

Rahul Dravid, however, has drawn ire from Indian fans for expressing his support for Rishabh Pant as they believe having the southpaw in India’s squad for the T20 World Cup does not bode well. .

“That’s why India won’t win the world cup. We need more fit players in T20 and in good shape. Well suited pants in test or ODI, not T20. World Cup is not something something you play to develop players is something you play to win. We need a coach who knows how to win,” one fan tweeted.

“But he has to start playing like a mature cricketer now, he’s played a lot of games now, enough cake for him in the white ball, Rutu looks like he’s not ready for the international stage, I don’t saw only one performance of him playing for India,” another wrote on the microblogging platform.

“23 Avg 124 SR after 47 games, which amounts to 17 Avg. 110 SR if we remove WI. Unreal support… only if other players had the same privilege,” said a third.

On the other hand, former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra has suggested that Rishabh Pant might miss the flight to Australia because his T20I form is not as good as other wicket-keepers in the team.

“From day one we knew he (Pant) was going to be popular. He came on day one and then was dropped as he was initially falling apart. Then he came back and made a name for himself. I’m sure he will be disappointed with the kind of T20 numbers he had.

“The question this person asked was ‘can the Indian team play T20 cricket without Pant? Yes why not. The T20 World Cup is very far away. There is no stamp that says Pant will surely play the T20 World Cup. He can also hurt himself. But there are many games in between. We will have ten T20Is and then the Asian Cup,” Ashish Nehra said on Cricbuzz.

“One good thing about Pant is that he plays all three formats. Others only play T20I, and if they don’t do well in those limited occasions, they will be in trouble. You have Ishan Kishan , Sanju Samson. You also have Dinesh Karthik,” Nehra added.

Meanwhile, former India fast bowler Irfan Pathan and former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar have urged the national team management to try Rishabh Pant as an opener.

“We’ve been talking about offside (problem) for a long time now. But when does this happen? When the field opens. Can we use Rishabh Pant in the power play where the bowlers cannot give enough width? Yes, there will be challenge because the ball will swing early, but then Rishabh Pant is a quality hitter. He scored nearly 3,500 international runs in his short career. So I’m thinking in that direction. It may not be now, but it may be in the future,” said Irfan Pathan.

“I’ve been thinking about it for 3 years. If you look at Sachin Tendulkar’s career, he reached his first century in his 75th or 76th innings when he was asked to open the innings against New Zealand after beating largely in the middle order. At the moment, the Indian team is considering a left-right combination.

How does social media fit into medicine and healthcare? The question persists in debates between experts and institutions, but virtually all agree that there are equal advantages and disadvantages to consider with the connection. Nearly 9 in 10 doctors and nurses said they had social media accounts as recently as 2017.

Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok and many more offer a unique set of opportunities for scientists and caregivers interested in representing their field online. But as with any form of health messaging, a clear purpose and informed strategy are absolutely necessary.

In an interview with HCP Live At the Society for Dermatology Physician’s Associates (SDPA) 2022 Annual Meeting last week, Savanna Perry, PA-C, creator of The PA Platform and Physician Assistant at Evans Dermatology, discussed her meeting session on strengthening social presence as a health professional.

Perry first became interested in building an online audience when she took up blogging early in her AP career. Eventually, his consulting business The PA Platform took off, and Perry expanded his marketing and education efforts to social media. She learned to “integrate my profession and what I do in dermatology” into content for people interested in pursuing a career in her field.

Today, the PA platform has around 55,000 followers on its Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube accounts.

“I think getting started is the hardest part, because it’s really hard to know which platform to start with, what you need to post, how to do it,” Perry said. “There are a lot of steps to go through and everyone wants to get to work. My biggest advice to anyone… is just to be consistent and persistent.

While Perry considers the platform a great marketing tool for her consulting work, she stressed the need for dermatology specialists and physician assistants to consider their specific practice-specific account creation goals. .

“Does it bring in patients, does it build a brand, does it influence?” she explained. “There are many different paths you can take – and you can combine them – but you need to know which direction and what you’re headed for in order to know what kind of content to create.”

Among fellow PAs, Perry noted that building and promoting an online platform can be beneficial in a field that offers less stability than other medical professions. From practice to practice, providing a strong social media presence is “essentially a marketable skill.”

Acknowledging the changing algorithms and content preferences of social media platforms, Perry said there has been a significant push for more educational content and information sharing from medical expert accounts. Coupled with a high-profile field like dermatology, as well as an increased prioritization of telemedicine following the COVID-19 pandemic, specialists in the field could do well serving as a trusted expert online.

“We’re a visual specialty, and it’s just not as exciting to show someone’s blood pressure improving,” Perry said. “Everyone has skin, but they don’t always understand their skin. There are so many products and information thrown at us all the time, and some of them just aren’t right. “

Perry cited research she included in her SDPA session that highlighted the number of patients who rely on social media content to make healthcare decisions, as well as data suggesting that misinformation spreads about 6 times faster on the Internet than in other media. More than just a professional and personal interest, medical professionals using social media can provide a needed service to lost patients.

“These patients go online to find providers and information, but they’re more likely to find incorrect information,” Perry said. “I think it is part of our responsibility as medical professionals to publish evidence-based medicine and accurate information with links and sources so that these patients feel more confident in the information they find.”

In a relatively short period of human history, social media has managed to have quite a significant impact. From the dawn of the first social media site called Six Degrees in 1997, to the rise in popularity of blogging sites closer to the 200s, social media as a whole has come a long, long way. And not all of the impact it has had has been on the positive end of the spectrum, which begs the question, can the powers of social media be used for good rather than evil? And the answer is yes, but it’s like walking a tightrope, so the only way to be successful is to keep an eye on the prize and not fall into the negative traps of social media.

So, to answer the question, “Can social media be your best friend?” people should first consider what the original intention of social media was and try as best they can to let that guide their decision-making.

What is the power of social networks?

Simply put, the purpose of social media in its early days was to connect people, help them communicate easily and also facilitate business growth by allowing them to reach their desired audience. And the power of social media lies in the fact that people can take advantage of these platforms, which have a very wide reach, to expand their circle of influence and engage directly with the people they want to talk to, easily and effectively.

How do you properly harness the power of social media and make it your friend?

1. Focus on creating and curating content

People tend to get hooked on numbers early on, when in fact what should be the focus when trying to build a business is actually content creation and the aesthetics of the flow, etc. The content that is published should be visually appealing, have a story and also have takeaways. This ensures that the audience and the people consuming the content walk away with something, be it a good feeling, new learning, etc.

2. Know your audience

It’s every business owner’s job to know their target audience. When someone starts a business, one of the first questions they should ask themselves is who am I talking to or for whom am I creating this and what need does it meet? Based on this, they can then focus on all the demographics that will allow them to understand how to build their social media strategy, based on their audience, their needs, and what they are looking for.

3. Develop a strategy

It is also useful to think of tools that could help the company and divide it in the growth phase. If the first phase is to let the public know the brand, the next phase can be to study the competitors and determine how to capture more market share for growth, etc.

4. Collaborate

While healthy competition keeps people on their toes, you should never be shy about collaborating. In today’s world, much can be achieved and accomplished by avoiding toxic competition and choosing to seek out like-minded people and collaborate with them for mutual benefit.

5. Engage with your audience as well as others

It’s also wise to remember that you can’t and shouldn’t create content, distribute it and forget about it. Some of the most successful celebrities and social media brands make it a point to not only engage with their audience on their own content, but to go the extra mile and engage with the pages they follow as well. Followers love to feel like they’re heard and listened to and other Pages also love getting the attention of their contemporaries.

6. Network

Searching for people and building a network is essential to spreading something. The greater the reach, the higher the likelihood of finding someone who can help take the business to the next level. As the old bible verse says, “Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you”

7. Mix

While building the business/brand is the priority, there should always be a mix of authentic value-added content and brand-focused promotional content. The least successful pages on social media are always the ones that blast their followers with promotional post after promotional post relentlessly.

8. Don’t compare or obsess

The downside of social media that everyone should be aware of is that it becomes very easy to fall into the trap of comparing yourself to each other. The useful thing to remember is that everyone is on their own path and has their own struggles that might not be made public on social media, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Also, obsessively tracking your growth is something everyone does, but always remember; there are many metrics to gauge and measure success, and follower count is just one of them

If followed, these steps (some simple and some much more difficult) will help decode how anyone can make social media their best friend and use their powers for good.
