How to get the most out of social media

How to get the most out of social media

Is your Instagram feed feeling slow? Nothing exciting to tweet on twitter? Are you bored with the limitations that social media imposes on you? Well now you can break free with these wonderful websites:

Picattoo

Have you ever taken a really good Instagram photo? Like a really good one. Like a really good selfie that you thought to yourself, “Hmmm, I wish I could get this tatted.” Well now you can!

A Dutch photography company Ink361 launched Picattoo to fill that empty hole in your heart. They discovered a surplus demand for Instagram tattoos. I didn’t even realize I needed this until I heard of it. Now I want an entire arm sleeve of my photos. Thank God for the Dutch.

For only $14.99, you can get 12 tattoos created from 12 different photos and international shipping is free. What a steal! The tattoos last about a week and are laser printed in color onto temporary tattoo paper.

Readers, I know what ya’ll are thinking: “A product this perfect, what’s the catch?” Well, the photos absolutely have to be from your profile, so your friend’s artsy sunset or sunrise photo or their adorable puppy can’t be sent to you. But I say it’s still worth it.

Poettweet

Who says that being a poet is tough? With Poettweet, you can become a modern day Yeats with your daily tweets.

If you’re low on inspiration and coffee isn’t quite giving you the juice you need, hop on Poettweet and get inspired. If you need a poem for English class, what better source of content than you’re own twitter feed?

São Paulo’s Barco Contemporary Culture Center created Poettweet that digs up data from your Twitter history and compiles your random 140-character thoughts into a beautiful poem.

The process is simple: enter your Twitter handle, select a poem style (sonnet, rondel, or indriso), wait one poetic moment, and in an instant you’re a world-class bohemian Homer.

And there you have it, two ways to play with your social media profiles. Not the websites we deserve, but the ones that we need.
