Instagram, is known for being a “photo sharing platform”. That really isn’t what it is any more. More and more people are seeking to find other platforms. In this post, I am going to talk about the recent video and more.

A Message from the IG Head:

“We’re no longer a photo sharing platform”

Hello everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my Medium blog! Today I am going to talk about Google Poly. Google Poly is a 3d model website by Google. Poly is sadly closing on June 30th, 2021. I am literally writing this post on the 30th to check out the website what is joining the Google Graveyard.

The Models:

I first want to check out some of the 3d models, so you can see what this site had to offer. Take a look at this for example, an incredible moving 3d model of an island.

Hey Everyone! I am back here on Medium for another post! My computer is running sooo slowly right now… I am exporting a video and my graphics card is at max capacity! 😬 I am hoping my computer won’t crash.

Today I want to talk about an issue that has been getting worse in the past few weeks. I’ve seen YouTubers talk about it, bloggers talk about, it and seen it first hand EVERYWHERE. It is a huge problem across the web. What is it? It is comment bots.

Overview:

Okay, if you aren’t aware, comment bots leave comments like…


100!!! Thank you so much, you helped me make it to 100 follows on Instagram! In this post, I wanted to talk about the little perk that Instagram gives you for hitting this milestone!

Okay so, I want to mention that this is a feature for business accounts. These accounts aren’t hard to get and give you little extras like this. Now, how do you access this magical tab, you may ask? You should see a little button called insights on your profile…


Hey everyone! Today I am going to tell you what happened at I/O this week! Feel free to skip around in the post (each new section is in bold). Okay, let’s get started!

The Blob Opera:

Okay, so I logged into Google I/O a tiny bit late and right in the middle of this super random blob opera. If you didn’t see this part of I/O, you have absolutely no clue what I am talking about, so let me explain.

What is the blob opera:

Basically, it is an AI powered website that you can use to make music. Yes…


Well, well, well… It is time! In a post that I did about the Galaxy Unpacked event, I had some questions about Samsung softwares. Basically, I wanted to see if the new software features would come to the previous gen Galaxybooks! Guess what?! They came! Today I am going to show you all the software, how you can get them on a previous gen Galaxybook (in my case, the flex alpha), and see how good they are!

How to Get These on Your Galaxybook:

Getting these on your galaxybook should be easy; You can go to the Microsoft Store and…


Hello everyone! Google is updating their algorithm in some pretty major ways and in this post, I wanted to talk about how you can update your site and what to expect. As always, if you enjoy today’s post, be sure to applaud it and if you want to see more posts like this one, a follow would be absolutely wonderful! Now, let’s get right into it.

Okay, so you may be wondering… what important things are in this update?

  • Web Vitals:

Web Vitals are parts of your site like the CLS (cumulative layout shift). The CLS is what…


Snapseed, one of two photo editors from Google. Back in 2012, Google bought this photo editing software and since then the software seems to have gotten just a handful of “updates”. The change log on most of the updates normally just says bug fixes and in the past few years there have not been many changes to the editor itself.

Meanwhile, over on Google Photos, the editor has been changed a ton in 2020 and this year with a new video editor and new photo features. …


The four new Galaxy Books just launched and, a lot has changed, more people are talking about them, and some pretty dope features were added.

Hello Everyone!

Google just released an awesome new video editor for Google Photos! Well, it will probably have been out for just under a week by the time this post comes out. In this post I wanted to show what it can do and try to edit a video using it. Hope that you enjoy!
