What does IGTV mean?

IGTV means Insta gram Television

IGTV is actually an app of Insta that makes it possible to watch videos of 60 minutes. So it’s actually a kind of YouTube from the creators of Insta gram. You can also view the IGTV content via the normal Insta app. At the beginning there will be no ads to be seen within IGTV, this because there must first be a love for the platform, and then scare ads off soon of course. How that will be in the future is unclear, but the creators of the video will still want to be paid for their effort, so somewhere money will have to come today. Because everything is meant to be viewed on your phone, and because you usually have it in your hand, the videos will all be vertical (see also VVS). When you open the app, it immediately starts playing videos.

What does Failwhale mean?

Failwhale is the Twitter error page

Twitter was regularly offline in the past by a too large amount of users who would like to use the service at the same time. The page you saw then was a whale that was lifted by birds from the water: This is the Failwhale. Meanwhile, many improvements have been made to the platform, but it still occurs that the servers are out (especially during upgrades or major events). The Failwhale has become a household name and is also often used if another site doesn't do it anymore. Failwhale images from Flickr

What is Foursquare?

Foursquare is a location based Twitter

With FourSquare, users can share tips from location. It is about tips of the form: in this restaurant they have good food, in this café it is always too busy on Sunday afternoon, etc. Users of FourSquare get points for the tips, and also points for check-in at a location. Check-in is meant to indicate: I am now present at this location. The idea here is firstly that you can see your friends. So it is a website (with applications for your mobile phone) with three goals:

  1. Mobile Friends Viewfinder
  2. Tips for a city
  3. Game

The game element is thus in the points, and for certain actions you get a badge (this may be frequent check-in on a day, often leaving a tip, adding new locations, etc.). In this way the game element is thus as many points as possible, but also collect as many badges as possible. In America it is already normal, but Dutch companies are now playing in this. If you are mayor of a location, you can get free things. Check out the Snack square website to see the Dutch participants.
