The Winner Of The Atomos Ninja Star Contest Is…

Jared Polin December 21, 2014 Comments Off

Last week I posted the seven finalists of the Atomos Ninja Star Contest. Now it’s time to announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and prizes.

I must tell you Atomos was extremely happy with the entries so much so that they may want to work with the winner to create a unique video for one of their other products. They also decided to toss in some extra prizes so each of the finalists could win something.

This goes to show you once again that if you put yourself out there there is a chance something good may come of it.

I want to pass along a HUGE THANK YOU to Atomos for sponsoring this contest and giving away such cool prizes. For more information on Atomos and the Ninja Start please click here.

RANT – The GREAT Instagram Purge

Jared Polin December 19, 2014 Comments Off

A major RANT was in order after the Instagram CULL of Dec 18th 2014. This is not an angry RANT about me losing roughly 1000 followers, it’s a RANT about all the people up in arms about losing so many.

Before I get into more detail, if you were not aware of what was going on, Instagram has started to delete and remove spam bots and fake accounts. This means for anyone who purchased fake users they would see a substantial drop in their following.

I am happy Instagram culled these fake accounts but a lot of people who “had” a large following are complaining strongly to Instagram to add back their lost numbers. Are you kidding me, add back fake numbers, cut the bs and get over the vanity fake numbers.

My issue is with people who have built businesses around fake numbers. They have gained a “large” following and I say large the way I did because they are fake bots and they start to get business based off of those numbers. The problem is advertisers simply look at the number of followers someone has which should not be the only thing you look at. You have to look at interactions. If someone has 500k subs and gets a small number of actual interactions there’s an issue. You may see likes but if you don’t see real comments you know theres an issue.
