Our Social Media re-hash blog came to an end. It’s had a good run, 2 years in fact, but with the close of 2016 it seemed the perfect opportunity to close the door on our blog too. You can find the majority of them here.

All in All will focus on the news your probably missed, the updates you probably didn’t know you should care about and finish with a little about what we read, watched and listened to.

Awards Season

The Golden Globes signalled the start of Awards season. Most people mentioned Trump. He reacted in his usual fashion and Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield kissed.

Oh and La, La, Land which is an absolute delight took loads of awards.

President Trump

Speaking of Trump. His inauguration took place and was quite unspectacular. We had so many questions:

1) Who are those people that played Thursday night?

2) Why didn’t Kanye West show up?

3) Is America now ‘Great’ again?

The days following however we’re tragic but you’ve probably seen, heard and are sick to death of all of that.

iPhone

The iPhone turned 10 and made us all think just where we’d be if it hadn’t moved the smartphone business along.

The Variety Bazaar

Late last year Glastonbury announced it would be moving in 5 years time, and rotating from there every 5 years. This week, they announced the new location festival would be called The Variety Bazaar.

“I got my Variety Bazaar tickets”

Doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it?

Avocados

Avocados we hear you say. Yes, Avocados. According to Amobee after Trump announced a potential tariff against Mexican goods, avocado Twitter mentions jumped 371%.

That’s around 33,000 tweets.

Facebook Stories / Instagram Live

Yes it is true. Facebook will release another update later this year – making another clone of Snapchat but this time for Facebook. Why? you might ask. Well, simply put Facebook are trying to bring back a younger demographic to the platform, after all video updates are the new status update.
