30 Year Of GIFs: The GIFts That Keep On Giving
As you know by now, we at Truly Social love to add GIFs into our social feeds, to sprinkle them into our tweets, or even to have a good laugh at them in our group chats. Gifs are truly the GIFts that keep on giving - and now it’s our time to GIF back (Okay, okay, we’ll stop).
It’s 2017 and that means it’s the 30th year of the GIF! In honour of our favourite file format, we’re giving you a crash course on our blog in what the heck a GIF (jif?) is and how it has, and is, changing the world.
Happy 30th GIFs may you always be there for us!

"Ingrid Goes West", Social Media Star Meets Instagram Stalker... The Movie
Aubrey Plaza is going to make your social media nightmares come to life in her latest film Ingrid Goes West. In the film Aubrey Plaza is Ingrid Thorburn, a girl who becomes obsessed and stalks Instagram star Taylor Sloane (played by Elizabeth Olsen). We follow her as she becomes consumed with being apart of Taylor’s life for better or for worse. The film seems to be an excellent commentary on our social media-obsessed culture and Ingrid really embodies the dark side of that culture. HelloGiggles

Canadians Are Eager For Voice-Based Assistance
Consumers are already accustomed to turning to search when they need something, and the age of assistance is the natural next step. Canadians are increasingly interested in taking this next step with the help of voice activated assistants like Amazon’s Alexa & Echo or Google’s Google Home. As Canadians we want to use voice commands to help us with such search tasks as directions, food delivery, restaurant reservations, and making & managing shopping lists. As our devices become assistants rather than google searches focused on keywords, we’ll be asking those devices the same questions we would ask any expert friend. think with Google
Only time will show us what the future of voice assistants will look like
