You’ve probably heard about Vine by now, and if not… you’re missing out. I love this new app. It’s such a creative way to make videos and share them! Plus, since Twitter bought the app, when you tweet a Vine video, it plays directly in your tweet.

Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile (or just your foolong sandwich). Over the past few years we’ve seen a couple ways that social media has affected companies, and just two weeks ago, yet another company was challenged in a huge way.
Subway is known for it’s footlong sandwiches, but when Matt Corby of Australia bought his sandwich, it didn’t ‘measure up’ to standards. His ‘footlong’ sandwich was only 11″. Corby took a photo and posted it to Subway’s Facebook… and it made worldwide news. (No wonder Jared lost all that weight… he was only eating 11″ subs.)
