Social platforms make us all creators

There have been some great releases recently from the social platforms which make us all into creators – but before you leap into testing them, consider why. Is it just a “be first” mentality, or have you come up with a great idea and you’re looking for the right medium & channel to execute it in? Hopefully, it’s the second, but if not, give us a call and we’ll come up with a great idea for you!

In the meantime, here are some of the latest creator tools you could experiment with:

A couple of weeks after Instagram announced Spark AR, we heard that Snapchat also has more options in their AR studio. There are lots of new options for lenses as well as some new locations to choose from.
