Oktoberfest in Bethlehem is a Champion Fall Event

By Angelo Fattore, LVWL Intern

On a rainy overcast afternoon ArtsQuest’s Oktoberfest kicked into full gear, lederhosens and all. As the Yuengling began to flow so did the real competition start, a competition that would separate the winners from the losers, the Raven One to One Media Oktoberfest Celebrity Skill Challenge (ROTOMOCSC for short)!

Twitter Now Allows You to do More in 140 Characters

Whether you use Twitter to share information about your businesses’ upcoming events, show off your latest products, or even to broadcast live, you’ll now be able to do more with 140 characters.

The 140 character limit has been the hallmark of Twitter’s appeal, but also sometimes a downfall when you’re trying to share images, links, or replying to a decent amount of other accounts. Thankfully, Twitter recognized some of the drawback to being a bit too stringent on the 140 limit and has made a few changes.

Instagram’s New Updates Emulate Snapchat

Instagram will begin rolling out an update that will add some very Snapchat-like features in coming weeks.

Of course, Instagram isn’t saying publicly that they are copying one of Snapchat’s best features, but they are. And, hey, there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. Social media platforms have always borrowed ideas from each other in an effort to stay relevant. 

Facebook’s New Algorithm to Give Boost to “Best Friends” and Decrease to Pages

Facebook’s changes, whether they include algorithm updates or modifications to your news feed, always cause an initial bit of uproar until people forget about them.

Let’s face it, you’ll be a bit annoyed for awhile, but as long as you’re still able to easily share photos and moments and connect with your friends, most of these changes only result in Facebook page account administrators needing to work a bit harder to get their content noticed.
