A new platform has been making the buzz these days, claiming that it will forever stay ad-free and never sell our personal information, but can we really trust Ello? Time will tell I presume.
In an age of information, social networks have long understood the value of the “big data” they collect from us, day after day. Some platforms, of course, use it to make our life better. Such is the case of LinkedIn who rolled out University rankings this week, based on the data collected from alumni.
Other businesses have understood that sometimes, the best way to have an impact, is to break the rules, use a platform in a way it was not made to be used. Check out our Instagram creative campaign of the week, I am sure you will like it!
