Pinterest Traffic Secrets, Logo Trust, & Instagram in Facebook's Creator Dashboard...This Is THE LATEST!

So, something weird happened this weekend -- twice.

First, I was watching Saturday's SNL with Adam Sandler hosting (Fun fact: it was his first time on the show since he was fired as a cast member 24 years ago) and I caught a typo in one of the skits: 

SNL-typoRomano or Ramano?

Now, I've been an avid viewer of SNL my entire life and I've never seen them make an error like that before, so I was understandably surprised. I mean, it might have been part of the gag, but for the sake of my story, let's pretend it wasn't. haha.

Then, this morning I see news break that, in Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, fans spotted a Starbucks cup sitting on a table in one of the scenes:

Yikes. Talk about blooper, right?

Honestly, both of these mistakes made me smile.

And no, it wasn't some heartless schadenfreude on my part, but rather, a sense of camaraderie and comfort; comfort in knowing that even the big guys make mistakes. 

SNL and HBO/Game of Thrones are institutions. They arguably have some of the greatest talents working for them and, look, even they slipped up.

The bottomline is no one is perfect. All we can do as human beings is our best and to try to stay ahead of the game. Here's some of what's going on to help this week:

The relationship of Facebook and Instagram is getting more serious. Not only has Instagram moved into Facebook's Creator Dashboard, but they mixed their CD collections (erm -- I mean analytics).
