Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

Hi, I'm Russ Alman, and I'm the primary social media manager for the Wenatchee World. I, along with my business partner, Dominick Bonny, curate most of what goes on in the World's social cyberspace. I thought you might be wondering who this "Russ A." guy is that responds to your comments and questions, and since it was my turn to write a column for Your Digital World this week, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to introduce myself.   

Share A Live Window to the World with Periscope

Imagine you're taking a hike up Saddlerock on a clear, crisp morning. The sun is peeking over the horizon and the vista is just gorgeous. But instead of taking a video, saving it, and uploading it to Facebook or Twitter later, you want to share it in real time, LIVE?

New app adds spin to videos

Instagram, the social media network that focuses on quickly posting pictures and short videos from your smartphone, has been adding new supplemental apps to improve your posting experience. A few months back, they added Layout, which allows you to easily make collages of multiple pictures and post them as a single image on Instagram and elsewhere, and Hyperlapse (iOS only), which allows you create time lapse videos.

As the social media manager for The Wenatchee World, I’d like to add my perspective.
