Tyler’s (Instagram) Video of the Day

You can click on the image above to see my first Instagram Video featuring…Tyler, of course. This was post-walk and you can hear him licking working away to get a treat out of his smart toy.

As a big fan of Twitter’s Vine, I felt a bit conflicted about Facebook’s copycat move of offering videos on Instagram…but hey, that’s business and mobile video is (finally) gaining traction with the mainstream population. (Yup, this is where I plug client Hang w/.) So what did I think about Instagram Video? Well, three things:

1) I love the 13 filter options that can instantly enhance your video.
2) The image stabilization is great as it helps eliminate the shakiness in videos.
3) Compared to Vine’s 6 second maximum limit, 15 seconds for an Instagram video seems like an awfully long time. Then again, I felt a bit rushed with 6 seconds sometimes, so at least with Instagram Video, you can choose to shoot a video between 3 to 15 seconds long.

And if you’d like, you can find me on Instagram at @apresnewyork.

New Public Relations Client: 9SPR for Hang w/

While at XO Group Inc., I had the opportunity to work with a number of PR firms and publicists who often wanted us to feature their clients in upcoming TV segments and interviews. Katie Hammond of 9SPR is one of those publicists that I could always count on when calling in products for TheBump.com… and well, she recently hired me to specifically work on a new client called Hang w/!

So what’s Hang w/? Launched by MEDL Mobile, Hang w/ is the first-ever iPhone app to allow live real-time video to be sent from one phone to many, enabling people around the globe to connect, communicate and share experiences via live streaming broadcasts. At the end and beginning of each live broadcast, a short ad will show up, offering  celebrities and public figures an additional way to monetize their fan base. Any user can be a broadcaster and/or a follower, and they’ll also be able to send messages directly from the app to Facebook and Twitter as events happen live.

The Hang w/ app is available on iTunes and just launched yesterday. Yes, yesterday! Here’s a link to the press release that went out and a little preview video. So I hope you take a look at it and see if you’ll add it to your bag of social media platforms.
