Ever noticed your news feed and stories lately? People are going crazy with the new Snapchat filters that’s taking social media by storm.

We’ve always known Snapchat to dish out cool and funny camera filters but this batch is one for the books.

People all over the globe – from celebrities to parents (who use the filters on their babies) – have used these filters to either poke fun at themselves or others, or to see and compare their faces with their siblings, friends, or significant other. Because the new filters are very much relatable to everyone.

Here are the few Snapchat filters that people are enjoying lately.

It is that time of the year again. The end of March marks as one of those days when the world unites to take care of Mother Earth and bring forth issues about the environment for Earth Hour. That one event that dedicates an entire hour in turning the lights off to minimize electricity use and, thus, carbon footprints.

For others, they go the extra mile by not just turning off their lights, but other appliances as well such as their computers, television sets, and cooling or heating systems. Anything to consume as less power as possible.

This could be a downer for some, especially to those who have lots of tasks and activities which are dependent on electricity. But are these activities really necessary? Or can’t we really pause or take a break from them even for just an hour?

This Earth Hour, we at Rocket Social would like to give you ideas on what you can do during an hour with less-to-no electricity. Who knows? You would enjoy this hour more than you thought you would. So stretch out those legs, feel the comfort of your environment, and enjoy the night with just the power of fun and enjoyment.

tiktok marketing

The social media industry has always been challenging when it comes to online marketing. There’s always something new that comes up and you’re never so sure if you want to spend time and effort in investing marketing forces there. Something comes up and dies down most of the time, right? And what’s left in the end are your usual staples: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

When a new social media platform called TikTok came out, you might have asked: should I consider this for an online marketing effort? TikTok is a short video social media platform. Yes, just like what Vine was.

When Vine officially signed off, people are looking for that short video format that they all love. Funny, witty, 6-second videos drove people’s creativity at a whole new different level. Somebody just needed to step in, and TikTok came to the rescue.

However, the entry of this new social media platform has now sparked debates in the online marketing world. Some online marketers are now considering what they call as TikTok marketing. But would this be worth it in the long run? Would it be there for the long haul? Or would it just disappear like all the others?
