🛫 Discovering Holiday Destinations


🛫 Discovering Holiday Destinations

There’s no shortage of user-generated content (UGC) on #SocialMedia that keeps friends and family updated and allows users to save a snapshot of their experiences; two thirds post about their holiday on social media, with 4 in 10 posting while on the holiday.

This has a huge impact on vacationers’ decisions. Consumers are actually more likely to discover #travel destinations through content their peers share on social media – whether that’s photos/videos (37%) or recommendations (32%) – than branded travel ads (24%).

🎞 Video Get More Interactions than Images


The more followers an #Instagram business page has, the more likely it is to include video in its mix of post types, according to a study from Quintly. As part of its report, Quintly analyzed more than 8.9 million posts during the Q1-Q3 2018 period from more than 44,400 profiles ranging in size from 0-1k followers to more than 10 million followers.

The analysis yielded an interesting benchmark: the vast majority (72.6%) of posts from these various pages were Image posts. In fact, posts were more than 4 times as likely to be Images as Videos (16.7% share), and almost 7 times more likely to be Images as Carousel posts (10.7% share).

However, the finding that 1 in 6 posts are Videos masks some intriguing differences by profile size. When sorting the results on post type distribution by page size, the analysis found a near-linear correlation between size and likelihood of using Videos. In other words, the larger the follower number, the more likely the page to use videos as part of the post mix, and the less likely to use Images.

Why are you living fake?


People would rather live a fake life than proudly embrace the true life within them-Unknown.

I look at youths and how crazy they are going just to live the life a celebrity or a friend is living. We forget that each and everyone of us was wonderfully and uniquely created. Each one of us was born with a gift and each one of us should embrace those difference for the world to prosper.

I was born a queit and a jovial person depending on the occasion. I was born with a passion for English and a reader too. You were born to be something else. Just imagine an introvert trying to lead an extroverted kind of lifestyle,wouldn’t that person look a little weird?

Why do we lie to our friends about the kind of people we are. What do we get from being fake? We lie from the things we posses, where we hangout, the kind of meals we take to even the kind of clothes we put on. Many of us are leading other people’s life. Will I ever be complete if I start leading the life of my favourite actor or celebrity? Of course no.

We crave for likes and followers on instagram, Facebook and even on Twitter. Be online on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10pm 🕙 and you’ll understand how far youths are willing to go to get followers. We’re forced to retweet, like and comment not because we are willing but because we know by the end of the day I shall have reached 2k followers. These forms the foundation of our talks and discussions be it at work or school the following day. We are longing to brag to our friends about how powerful we are becoming. Well… Take a step back. Is that really being powerful? How is that going to make you lead the life of your dream. Imagine if the same energy was to be channelled towards our goals in life, our real desires or the things that are truly important to us. Which kind of world would we create.

Still on instagram and the things that inspire us. Which kind of pictures do we post? Definitely everyone posts their best but imagine getting a negative comment on the very picture you so highly esteem. Won’t you feel like the whole world is abruptly cracking? If you really believed your picture was good then why do you allow a negative comment get into you.

Fakeness will never make our life any better than it is. A man can only reach his or her full potential if he embraces his true self. Faking where you stay, where you studied, the stuff you own, the feelings deep inside your heart or even your thinking isn’t going to make us better. The first step to full realisation is to live our real life, that kind of life you live in the comfy of your bed. And if you’re getting confused about who you really are, then look at yourself and the thoughts you lead when alone. What makes me really me? -a kung-fu panda movie quote. That’s the question you ought to ask yourself and live that answer out loud. Shine! But remember not to settle for mediocrity or a life way below your potential.
