Snapchat was the original messenger app to ultimately utilise smartphone cameras for messaging purposes. However, Snapchat is now facing the threat that all ‘Early Adopters’ face; fending off the pressure from competition. Their hard to retain Millennial audience is beginning to grow impatient with the app’s redesigned interface and are quickly switching over to Snap’s leading competitor, Instagram.
Unlike other Early Adopters such as Myspace, MSN Messenger and Skype, Snapchat have used an effective risk management strategy to retain their audience; relying on innovation to remain relevant. With the well-received introduction of ‘Snap Maps’, Public Stories, Bitmoji Integration and Money Transferring capabilities, Millennials stuck by their old friend as they were excited to see the latest innovations.
Within three to six months, Business Magnate Elon Musk expects his brand ‘Tesla’ to become completely self-driven and even be able to complete a journey going coast to coast across the US. Musk even goes as far to claim that Tesla could have easily already done this but it would require ‘too much specialised code’ which would be ‘gaming’. Essentially meaning, the car would only be able to complete a single route coast to coast, with no other automotive functions.
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) claims there are 5 steps to creating a completely driverless vehicle, with the 5th stage being completely automatic driving.
Choosing the right social platforms is the most important step in creating an effective Social Media strategy. Carefully research and choose the platforms depending on their subscriber numbers and popularity within your specific target group, industry presence and potential growth in the future.
Facebook was still the most popular mainstream social media channel in 2017, however, if you’re targeting youngsters, you might find better results in engaging through Snapchat (41% Millennial audience) or Instagram (59% Millennial audience). The same rules apply for all demographics. For example, approximately 478 million women use Instagram; compared to just 322 million men. That’s almost a third more users!
Ever struggle to think of a creative idea? Go brew yourself a cuppa and think again; a new study indicates that the secret to a creative mind can be found in tea.
Tea drinking volunteers in the study immediately performed better than water drinking candidates in creative and cognitive exams. Initially, researchers believed the results to be down to the high dosage of caffeine and thiamine found in tea. However, these effects do not take place instantly and yet performance was rapidly boosted. The effect, in fact, is likely to be psychological.
Tea is likely to improve your mood and allow positivity to flow through your body. This, in turn, increases your brain’s cognitive ability. Think of it as the difference between going to work on a blue Monday or on a sunny Friday morning.
Generation Y (also called Millennials) are the largest demographic to pursue higher education, with over 45% of them joining a university before age 20. However, is this surge in university applications just because of a generational shift? Or are there some external factors that we should be looking at?
The largest educational demographic is also the most culturally diverse. In regards to racial ethnicity, there are more non-white Millennials as most were born during a period of heightened immigration.
There are less British born Millennials than any other generation, however when combined with foreign ethnicities, they are set to become the largest demographic.

At present, there are more than 300,000 Arabs residing in London, with more than half a million spread across Great Britain. These numbers increase during the summer months by up to a million and a half visitors from the Middle East, mainly from the Gulf.
As such, every summer the British press indulges itself in repetitive articles about the fabulous wealth of Arabs visiting London, with a focus on their luxury supercars that range in value of up to £2m.
But Arabs visiting London are here for a variety of reasons, ranging from heath treatment purposes to shopping, sightseeing, investments and education. Whilst some EU and US cities are laying out the red carpets for this niche market, London must also recognise the value of these potential consumers and should capitalise on the opportunity as they may boost the city’s economy.
GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – is a new EU regulation intending to combine and strengthen data protection within the EU. The regulation will come into effect 25th of May 2018, giving time to adapt to the changes. GDPR will replace the outdated Data Protection Directive which has many gaps in it as a result of the rapid advancement of technology since 1995, when the directive was made.
