ABC Abandons Ship For Amazon
The chairman at the ABC let it slip in a speech this week that they would be using Amazon as a model for their new streaming service. Though they pointedly did not mention other services like Netflix, “Mr Milne said ‘we are adding a very significant on-demand service – the beginnings of which can be seen with iView and  ABC Listen’.” We wonder, will other major traditional broadcasters like the ABC be following suit soon?
We'd love for ABC content to just get adopted onto current networks, we're having trouble keeping track of all the streaming content platforms already!

Fantastic Failures
As the second instalment of Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them was announced today, it came with as much excitement as it did rage. Fans of JK Rowling’s series are livid that Johnny Depp will be playing Gellert Grindelwald, even as it was proven true that he did indeed physically abuse his former wife, Amber Heard. As Rowling frequently promotes feminist views online and in her books, many fans are angered that in the face of rising action against sexual assault and abuse in Hollywood, somehow this was overlooked.

Quiz Craze Starts With Lies
Wondering where the social media quiz craze is going next? We recommend keeping an eye on Facebook’s youngest (now former) employee Michael Sayman. The whiz kid has joined Google’s team and created an app called Lies, an addictive trivia game that will quiz you on how well you know your friends. We can already see Facebook-owned ’tbh’ becoming less and less relevant.
When will we get a #WholesomeQuiz app though?

Facebook Launches Creator App
 Featuring a Live Creative Kit to enhance the Facebook Live experience for influencers, Facebook’s creator-focused app launched today. Though it was promised at VidCon in June, the app is really an update of the 2014 Mentions Application (which strangely, still exists in the app store), but instead is available to any iOS user, with Android coming soon.
But wait... is Facebook becoming relevant for young people again?

A Fresh Take On 30 Under 30s
Honestly, we’re not all rockstars. If you’re getting a little overwhelmed with the accomplishments of Forbe’s 30 under 30 crowd, we highly recommend a look at this more satisfying take on the classic list. 
It's okay to run four companies before you turn 30, but it's also okay to quit yoga classes and order pizza two nights a week.
