Are you a Fox or a Hedgehog?| Truly Social with Tara
A few years ago while reading Nate Silver’s book The Signal and the Noise, Tara fell in love with the analogy of The Fox and the Hedgehog. So much, in fact, that when she set out to finally get that sleeve tattoo she had always dreamed of, the fox became a central character. In this week’s video, Tara talks about why…and why the fox represents a core philosophy of becoming Truly Social. Watch the full video on YouTube.

Always Pinspiring
We often forget about Pinterest as an enormous driver of traffic - especially when it comes to fashion, beauty, and design. Data published by Pinterest last week shows that a stunning 40% of Pinners have actually purchased something they found on the site in the past 6 months. Consider this 40% against the dismal 0.9% of click-throughs on banner ads. Read the full analysis on the Pinterest blog.
Pinterest has developed into being the source for lust-worthy images with real conversion power.

Tesla Updates For Irma
A software update gave any Tesla cars in the wake of Hurricane Irma a battery boost, in the hopes of making it easier for those who were leaving the area to get out of harm’s way. This was a major help, especially considering the gas shortages in the Southeastern United States due to the large numbers of evacuations. Unfortunately, the update will only last until September 16th, leaving many to wonder why the upgraded software is only available to those willing to pay thousands of dollars.
This no doubt helped out a lot of Tesla owners during one of the US' largest ever evacuations.

Day-um!
Miss Texas took her opportunity to share her opinion on President Donald Trump’s response to the violence last month in Charlottesville, Virginia on live television during the Miss America pageant yesterday. Without missing a beat, Margana Wood used her 20 seconds on the mic to say what people have been thinking for weeks. Watch the full video on Twitter
It takes some real strength and guts to do what she did. Go Miss Texas!

Best Production of Bad News
Chief meteorologist for WKRG, Alan Sealls has been nominated by Reddit users as the “best weather man ever” for this articulate and educational forecast update on Hurricane Irma. The 4-minute long YouTube video by WKRG has reached over 4.5 million views (becoming the #3 trending video on the platform) not to mention Reddit’s #1 post. The internet certainly does reward good work
We learned more about weather from Alan Sealls than years of Science class.

Oktoberfest-Proof Your Feet
Oktoberfest is a historic holiday for beer-lovers, and to commemorate the celebration Adidas has created the München. With 6 million liters of beer being sloshed around during the annual festival, opportunities for spillage and other unpleasantries are plentiful, and so the München is designed with DPBR coating. DPBR stands for durable puke and beer repellent, of course. Watch the full launch video here.
It will be a happy and spill-free Oktoberfest for all this year!
