A Week in Social Media | 06/16 – 06/20

We spend our lives online: spotting trends, seeing what’s new and being inspired by cutting-edge creative from around the world. That means we all leave our studio a little more knowledgeable about our industry (and what’s happening in the wilds of the interwebs) each Friday night. Now, we’d like to share those with you.

Here’s all you need to know from last week in social.

PLATFORMS & TECH

  • Rejoice! Twitter now allows animated gifs. (Well, they aren’t really gifs, they’re mp4 video files, but close enough.) Let’s get loopy.
  • Facebook announced Slingshot, a Snapchat-like private messenger that requires a reply to “unlock” the received message.
  • Twitch added a new feature that lets YouTube users know when they are streaming live.

APPS & RETAIL

  • Amazon introduced the $199 Fire Phone featuring a 3D screen, head sensors and the ability to ID over 100 million objects in real time. Upside includes the ability to add movies/music/books to your collection in a simple and seamless way. Downside includes an unprecedented amount of access to personal data by a “big data” company. We’ll be staying tuned to see which message wins out.
OTHER NEWS YOU NEED TO KNOW FROM SOCIAL

  • A Stockton man’s mugshot lit up Twitter and inspired today’s #FelonCrushFriday. Because, standards.
  • Delta Airlines congratulated the US World Cup team on a win over Ghana with a tweet that featured a giraffe representing Ghana.  Except there are no giraffe in Ghana. Oops.
  • In surprise viral video hits of the week, the “First Moon Party” takes the cake.

Kathryn Perez-Fraga is Vice President, Social Media at Heavenspot, working with brands including Netflix, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros on what’s next in social. Follow her on Twitter @katpf.

Creating with Adobe Ideas

This image of Zapata, the famous Mexican Revolutionary, was created in Adobe’s touch app, Adobe Ideas. Creatives will find the app itself revolutionary in that we can now create high quality vector artwork on the go. My own illustration work typically starts with a photograph, so I was basically at the mercy of my desktop machine, wacom tablet and available hi-res photography. Achieving a hand drawn look was usually something that occurred after I’d spent countless hours with the pen tool, quickly tracing out shape after shape. Sure, this can be called “drawing”, but it always needed the ironic quotation marks, since the act of creating vector illustrations was nothing like drawing in the traditional sense. Even the idea of drawing with other tools, say the Blob brush, still felt removed as my hand only lived in my peripheral vision as I stared at the screen.

Are Video Games Art?

MoMA recently acquired 12 video games for a new branch of the museum’s permanent collection. The addition of video games to an art museum conjures the ongoing discourse on… what is art? Just yesterday, an editor I respect defined art for his publication as ‘something with no function, that evokes emotion’. In most contexts that makes sense… but there are grey areas… fashion, video games, documentary film, architecture, to name a few. Liel Leibovitz at New Republic said, “put bluntly, ”no.” Video games aren’t art because they are, quite thoroughly, something else: code.” He cites the case of Pac-Man v. Puckman, a knock off game by a company named Artic in from 1982 that cited the Title 17 of the US code of copyright protection that applied to “original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression.”
