Terrible Stock Photo Gets Meme'd, Goes Viral
You’ve probably seen it all over your newsfeed: the photo of a man walking next to a woman with his head turned around, starring at another woman that just passed by. Meme Documentation Tumblr has traced the popular meme image to photographer Antonio Guillem, who has worked for several years creating stock photos. The good-natured photographer finds the popularity curious, though he has seen little profit from its fame. Read the full interview on Wired.

Snap Reveals Key to Content
What’s Tara’s take on the Snapchat announcement to get in on the scripted content game? “Netflix and Amazon have done a bang-up job of leading the way to creating original series that are native to digital platforms. They’ve taken the best of traditional TV (big names, great stories) and digital culture (on-demand, data and insights, context agnostic, etc) and taken a HUGE bite out of cable TV’s stronghold. Perhaps Apple and Snapchat and Facebook and Disney and everyone else who is jumping on this bandwagon are going to also kill it. But I’m starting to wonder if this trend has jumped the shark. Do we really need more ‘premium content’?”

YouTube Gets A Makeover
The world’s favourite video-based search engine has undergone a makeover today. The Verge walked users through the new display, which clearly nodded at owner Google’s design aesthetic, favouring more white/grey than red on their pages, and prioritizing content space over navigation bars. Our favourite? The new logo, which features their signature Play button as a separate component. Dig deeper into the redesign process here.

Is this upgrade moving WhatsApp towards a hybrid of iMessaging and Facebook Messenger?
