App, Social Media

Lindsay Lohan has announced and launched her first gaming app. The Price of Fame is one of many apps the actress is releasing. OKGo’s Andy Ross programmed the celebrity cultured game which debuted at number 10 in the app store.

Similar to Kim Kardashian Hollywood the game is based on creating your own celebrity and increasing your fan base. Keeping it more simpler than Kim’s app this game focuses more on swiping and selecting comical possessions and entourage members along the way.

Kim Kardashian Hollywood was a great success accumulating $200 million. The app is often updated to keep fans occupied and engaged, her momager and sisters were recently added into the virtual scene.

Enough chit chat. Here is the trailer for The Price of Fame…

Let’s Talk About Taylor and Tumblr

Social Media, Taylor Swift, Tumblr

T-Swizzle. T-Dawg. TayTay. Taylor Swift. This pop star has been a busy bee lately in preparation for her new album 1989 (due Oct. 27).

We could talk about about Shake It Off and her feud with Katy Perry. But no.

LET’S GET REAL & TALK ABOUT TAYLOR’S TUMBLR

She likes to re-blog goofball gifs and vines of herself, as well as posting pics of Meredith Swift (her precious cat, who has her own twitter account..that Hannah Spears follows.. which is Britney’s dog.. where is this going?!)

This on going post often brings a lol to the tumblr community, but what’s really great is that BECKY DID NOT DIE! Yes, Taylor got into the joke this week sporting her snazzy top.

Kirsten Dunst In A Short Selfie Film

Kirsten Dunst, Social Media, Technology

Kirsten Dunst stars in a short film based on how celebrities are approached in a selfie culture world.

The film gives an alternative perspective on how a celebrity feels when approached by a fan. It also portrays how the relationship between fans and their idols have evolved, mainly due to social media.

The film shows the lack of interest in communicating with the star, yet eager to pose for selfies and post them online. Kinda makes you feel sorry for poor Dunst.

Check out the film below!! (& remember to take care of your celebrities people!)

Up Your Selfie Game

App, Social Media, Technology

Every time you blink, three people around the world have taken a selfie. (I made that up, just go with it).

Getting the perfect selfie can be a struggle. How many times do you have to take 40 snaps to delete them all ? From the lighting, to the angle, to the filter you pick, taking a selfie is turning into a serious form of art.

Hopefully this post will give you guidance and inspiration to achieve your selfie dreams.

You need to stand out from the crowd. Don’t be basic and just hold your phone to take a selfie. No. Make an investment. Make a statement. Purchase a selfie stick, BECAUSE YOUR ARM JUST IS NOT LONG ENOUGH (no offence).

Selfie-Stick

If you really want to up your selfie game and have true respect from your peers, you must acquire the selfie hairbrush. It is a brush. It is a case. IT IS A WAY OF LIFE. It also comes in three colours, which is a triple win situation!

The only natural lighting the selfie world accepts is at the golden hour. So filters are a must. Don’t be afraid of a filter sandwich because sometimes a stack of filters make the perfect picture.

Selfies-GIFS

Instagram obviously has a great source of filters, and there are plenty more apps in the app store to enhance your photos such as:

SpaceEffect (Free)
Snapseed (Free)
Litely (Free with paid add-ons)
Afterlight ($0.99)

Good luck selfie kings and queens.

JIBO: The Future Family Robot.

Social Media, Technology

JIBO is the latest successful product which is in development thanks to an Indiegogo campaign. Over $1million has been raised in anticipation for a product that will change homes.

So what or who is JIBO ? JIBO is a robot with the intelligence and capability to take part in family life.

The robot is designed as a social provider to participate in delivering messages, capturing pictures, reading stories and much more. JIBO can be seen as a personal assistant in the home, which is easy to communicate with (and looks cute).

JIBO is like an iPad robot with a better personality than Siri, and is targeted to be released in 2015.

The Indiegogo campaign is still open with many perks to choose from, and as the product is still in development stages more features are likely to boost the robot to success.

#CandidlyNicole From Web Series to TV

Nicole Richie, Social Media, TV, Twitter

Nicole Richie is back! (Not that she really went anywhere, but just go with it).

m

Nicole earned her reality star status in The Simple Life. If you haven’t seen the show, seek help. No really. The Simple Life was 2003’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians, staring former BFF Paris Hilton.

What we learnt from The Simple Life today, is that Nicole Richie is a living meme/gif. So who wouldn’t want to watch the sassy star back on our screens?!

Nicole began her web series #CandidlyNicole in 2013 and the lols began.

Hosted by AOL, the mini series ran 20 episodes of the style star based on her irreverent twitter feed. And in true Nicole fashion she tackled each show with her witty unfiltered sense of humour.

tumblr_msgyz9INT41rp25b8o1_400

The Socialmedialite explored many subjects from tramp stamps to fashion advice. Many of the episodes also featured her close friends and family members, including the legendary Lionel.

With great success, #CandidlyNicole is upgrading from an internet series to a television show (yey). Check out the trailer below.

The show is set to air Thursday, July 17th, on VH1.

Megan Fox Joins Instagram

Instagram, Megan Fox, Social Media

Megan Fox lasted 5 days on Twitter. But has now entered the filtered realm of selfies (hopefully for longer).

Now gaze at her photo and all her prettiness.

With a quoted photograph and a ‘I woke up like this’ selfie, I would say she is already starting to fit in well.

There are a bunch of fake accounts out there, but she is living under the random username of: the_native_tiger
