P1C Friday Finds Round-Up: 1st – 5th March 2021

P1C News

This week we welcomed Nicole Bowran as the newest member of the P1C family! She has joined us as a Social Media Manager and we’re very excited for her to get stuck into working on content for our wonderful clients.

Social Media


Craving the nostalgia of an analogue film camera, but not ready to give up the ease of digital? Meet Dispo, a new rival for Instagram that’s already the 4th most downloaded social app. Snaps taken on the app are ‘revealed’ the next day and cannot be edited, cropped or captioned just like when using an analogue camera. The app has been dubbed the ‘anti-Instagram’ and it’s certainly gaining traction.


Getting up to speed with other social media giants, Twitter is testing a new way to display tweets that link out to e-commerce product pages. Twitter will include a big “Shop” button and users will be able to integrate product details directly into the tweet itself, including the product name, shop name and product pricing. We’ll keep our eyes peeled to see how this one pans out.


WhatsApp has finally launched Desktop Calling allowing users to make free voice and video calls on a computer via the desktop app. Whilst this is a great move for the app, we can’t help feel that it’s a little too late given the already soaring popularity of Teams and Zoom, though I’m sure we could all do without being cut off our family catch ups after 40 minutes!

Ad Campaign


To aid charities that have been hit by the pandemic, two designers decided a spot of guerrilla campaigning would do the trick! The duo launched Think Food Banks and designed quirky illustrated stickers featuring phrases like ‘Be Nice, Buy Rice Twice’ (and our personal favourite ‘Don’t Forgetti, Donate Spaghetti!’) to remind people to pick up extra items for the food banks while shopping.

The Small Screen


Following a six-year break, BBC Three will be back on our TV screens as a regular channel after it moved online. The channel’s string of hit TV shows such as Fleabag, Normal People and Killing Eve has prompted calls for its resurrection as well as the existing market for young audiences on linear platforms. Will you be tuning in?

Tip Of The Week


If you’ve not started adding Instagram Guides to your social content, then it’s time you did! Guides are a great way to collate top tips, share step by step guides as well as promote products or services from your brand with shop links. The great thing about Guides is that you don’t need to create new content as you can use what you already have!
