We know the calendar says Tuesday, but it seems like Friday thanks to what feels like a week’s worth of exciting news today in the digital world. A roundup of some of our favorite headlines over the past 24 hours:
- It’s official: Instagram is now available for Android. We’ve got several ‘Droiders amongst us, and so far, so good - check out this owl-inspired shot by yours truly. I actually use both a Droid and and iPhone, and while the Droid version is currently lacking some features such as Tilt/Shift and Flickr integration, for the most part, Droid users can enjoy the same filter, tagging, and other social sharing options as iPhone users. Just be patient during the download process!
- China’s two largest microblog sites, Sina’s Weibo.com and Tencent’s t.qq.com, resumed normal service today following a three-day ban on posting comments and an outcry of complaints around censorship. Interesting story to keep an eye on if you’re a global brand.
- Tugg.com is still in beta but we love where it’s headed. If you haven’t heard about it, and you’re in indie film freak and supporter like we are, read up: - this new social platform puts the power in your hands to bring small budget documentaries like Morgan Spurlock’s “Comic Con IV: A Fan’s Hope” and Phillip Montgomery’s “#ReGENERATION” to your local theater.
