What it’s like to be Pornhub's social media manager

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 14:00

Managing a brand’s social media is tricky for anyone in 2019, and it’s even more challenging if you’re the social voice (and face) of Pornhub, the web’s most popular porn site. We spoke with Aria Nathaniel about the fine line she walks at the office each day.

Boasting a whopping 6 million followers on Instagram and 1.25 million on Twitter, Pornhub has amassed extensive reach on social media channels. By riffing on memes, trends, and current events — and interacting with readers — Pornhub stays relevant and continues to build an engaged community.

Most of that work is done by one woman — Pornhub's social media manager, Aria Nathaniel, who’s staying up to date not just on what Pornhub’s doing, but on the latest trends across the internet. Read more...

Late-game fart wreaks havoc on Philadelphia 76ers bench

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 13:41

The Philadelphia 76ers just learned that a high-pressure situation like the NBA Playoffs can cause the body to do weird things, like dropping stink bombs on the bench.

Midway through the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game between the 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets, TNT's camera cut to the bench for a glimpse of Philadelphia star Joel Embiid, who was out with a knee injury. But instead of finding Embiid and teammates deep in thought, the camera found a group of players reeling from what was probably one hell of a bad fart.

Zhaire Smith, on the far left, can be seen waving away the odious air before it reaches Embiid (gray blazer and white shirt) who can only pull the old shirt-as-gas-mask approach to protect himself.  Read more...

The top 15 'Scream' franchise kills, ranked

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 13:28

Excuse the morbidity of what I'm about to say — and if you hate slasher flicks and/or spoilers, you may want to stop reading now — but I love, love, love the Scream franchise. 

My feelings ring true for all slasher films — even if they're bad, which a lot of them are — but there's something extra-wonderful about the Scream movies. The cast, the fashion, the music, the unbridled dedication to reviving the genre ... it's the epitome of quintessential '90s campiness.

All four films thrive by playing tension-heavy guessing games that vary from who will die next to the identity of the serial killer dubbed Ghostface. Yet there are moments of tangible satire, introspection, and pop culture reflectiveness amid the bloody horror.  Read more...

Leslie Jones and Seth Meyers watch the 'Game of Thrones' premiere and it's delightful

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 12:58

There are fewer things more delightful than Leslie Jones' level of Game if Thrones super-fandom and now that the show is back, so are Jones' amazing reactions to the twists and turns of Westeros. 

Just like she did for Season 7, Jones joined Seth Meyers for his Late Night bit "Game of Jones" in which the pair are filmed watching the show and, once again, Jones doesn't disappoint. Within moments, she prompts Meyers to say, "Game of Thrones is confusing enough without you immediately saying you gotta get that ass."

Jones screams Arya's name and says things like, "You'd better never trust me with a dragon. They shoot fire and fly? That means I'm gonna do drive-bys every weekend, son!" But be sure to watch all the way to the end when Jones reacts to that Jamie Lannister-Bran Stark stare. Read more...

Stephen Colbert has a new theory about that bizarre Game of Thrones/"Game Over" photo Donald Trump tweeted after Attorney General William Barr's press conference ahead of the release of the Mueller Report. That cloud of vapor surrounding Trump is simply all "the smoke Barr just blew up his ass." Ouch. Also, ew.

Sorry iPhone X owners, but Pixel takes way better Aurora photos

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 11:00

It was dark and my feet were freezing, despite my winter boots and Alaska-themed wool socks. Up on a hillside, the city lights of Anchorage far below, I saw a milky sheen striped across the sky. Were those the Northern Lights I had been looking for? 

I turned my Pixel 2 sideways and tapped open the camera app. The screen was a pixelated black. I swiped to Night Sight. The display didn’t look any better. I pressed the crescent moon on Night Sight’s camera button and held still, as I'd been told. 

The milky sheen transformed into a bright green. The outline of a snow-spotted mountain emerged. My phone had captured more light from the Aurora Borealis than I could see with my own eyes.  Read more...

Audi's connected car feature barely helped me catch more green lights

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 11:00
Audi's Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory (GLOSA) feature $199 for 6 months; $499 for 18 months; First 6 months free. View Product The Good Easy to toggle on and it seamlessly shows up on your display • Can pace you through most of the connected intersections • The green light icon feels like an Easter egg that magically shows up The Bad Inconsistent and unreliable • Doesn't work in busier • denser areas • Limited availability even within connected cities The Bottom Line It's an unnecessary feature that doesn't add much to the driving experience. If you drive a lot it could be helpful, but don't pay for the Connect Prime membership just for the GLOSA. The red light information is much more useful. ⚡ Mashable Score 3.25 😎 Cool Factor 4.0 📘Learning Curve 4.0 💪Performance 3.0 💵 Bang for the Buck 2.0 Read more...More about Reviews, Review, Audi, Connected Car, and Vehicle To Infrastructure

Netflix's 'Someone Great' is aggressively fine

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 10:00

Not every Netflix movie can be great, even if you invoke greatness in the titleSomeone Great, which feels like a rom-com but technically isn't, has a crackling cast and snappy dialogue, but it lacks the x-factor of the sparkling original films among which it tries to stand.

Someone Great tells the story of Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) on the day after she breaks up with Nate (Lakeith Stanfield), her boyfriend of nine years. Jenny urges her best friends Blair (Brittany Snow) and Erin (DeWanda Wise) to bunk work and join her for a day of drinking, drugs, and a big ol' concert.

Hulu's 'Ramy' is a revolutionary millennial dramedy

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 09:00

Hulu's new original dramedy Ramy is the latest in a surge of television shows about millennials coming to terms with their identity. It's difficult not to compare it with counterparts like  Insecure, Fleabag, Atlanta, Master of None, Dear White People, all of which are masterful in capturing the farrago of human emotions through nuanced humor and deep reflection.

But Ramy distinguishes itself through the revolutionary lens of its creator and star, Ramy Youssef. He brings his experiences growing up as an Egyptian-American Muslim in New Jersey to the show without holding anything back.  Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 09:00

Over two decades after his passing, Bob Ross lives on in posthumous glory as *the* definitive art teacher for a generation of aspiring artists.

Whatever the case, Bob Ross made painting seem easy and accessible. And his legacy lives on in the slew of step-by-step instructional videos that exist to this day, which have together transformed the act of creating art from a rarified act worthy of would-be Michaelangelos and Picassos to a pleasurable hobby anyone can enjoy.

It boasts six courses instructed by Colin Bradley, a pro artist with more than 35 years of experience, who clearly takes a shine to the step-by-step instructional technique made popular by Bob Ross.

Snag these eco-friendly, rechargeable batteries while they're on sale

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 09:00

Think back for a second and attempt to gauge the number of single-use batteries you've used up your entire life. You probably used a whole lot of them for cassette players, gaming consoles, remotes, and controllers. And if you were to consolidate each battery you've ever used and thrown away, you'll probably be able to fill an entire kiddie pool.

We're not trying to guilt trip you (we promise), but we'd just like reiterate how wasteful single-use batteries are. Instead of hassling yourself with buying battery packs from dollar stores and switching them out after only a few uses, use these eco-friendly batteries and a recharging station instead.

Teen YouTubers who faked a pregnancy apologize — and offer bad sex ed advice

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/19/2019 - 00:49

Two teenage YouTubers were the subject of concern this week after they announced they were expecting a baby and had gotten "married" in Las Vegas. After dragging their followers through a four-part, monetized series, they revealed that it was just a "prank" and issued a very YouTuber non-apology for coming off as insensitive.  

Danielle Cohn, who goes by Dani, is 15 years old. Her boyfriend and fellow influencer, Mikey Tua, is 16. After dropping cryptic hints throughout the weekend, Mikey posted a hidden camera video of the couple telling their families that Dani was pregnant. 

They raised eyebrows when the two posted a later video of their "wedding" in Las Vegas — which Dani's mother clarified in a statement to BuzzFeed as only the two making a "promise" since Dani is too young to be legally married, even with parental consent. In the third installment, they visited a questionable doctor's office for an "ultrasound" to find out the sex of the hypothetical baby and listen to Mikey's father lecture them on responsibilities.  Read more...
