    I’ve been putting together a lot of different updates on Facebook and Google lately. Also, Yahoo! seems to be moving and dumping things too.

    I am interested in seeing how the video stuff pans out for Instagram and how much it will effect Vine.

    Hey Kim, what are you doing to me?

    I just finish sweating with the changes with FB and now you send me Instagram… wow, I was talking with my niece (she is 7) and she was explaining to me how to use Instagram… and I had to say… lets do it another time since I could get anything and NOW here you are talking about it in such deep way.

    WOWOWOWEOW… where this end?

    Anyway, I better start learning about it and keep up or will be left behind at a stage where it will be hard to catch up.

    Thanks again for all you do Kim.
    All the best in every way.

    Thanks for all of this Kim – I tried to check out the Twitter Analytics before, but I didn’t know it takes time to load the information, so I’ll check it out again.

    Hi Kim,

    Yes lots of changes this week. It is fantastic to have Twitter Analytics , another feature for a social media platform that is very popular here in Ireland.
