Olly Campbell sponsored by BeBirbal wins the London3Peaks

Posted Friday, October 10th, 2014

How does running up 2000 steps of 3 London skyscrapers sound to you? Pretty crazy no? Well Olly Campbell decided he was going to take on the London3peaks challenge which included 3 skyscrapers, 2000 steps and a 5K run and what’s more incredible is that he won it in an unbelievable 36 minutes and 2 seconds.

Olly Campbell who has been sponsored by BeBirbal in other ultra-marathon runners is quickly becoming a running machine, running 70 miles a week in training and competing in the UK’s biggest ultra marathons. BeBirbal is very excited to be part of his journey and we look forward to more events

 


Has Snapchat murdered Facebook?

Posted Friday, October 3rd, 2014

I watched a video yesterday from Casey Neistat who is an awesome YouTube film creator and an avid user of Snapchat

He put this video together yesterday: Snapchat murdered Facebook

It’s a massive thumbs up to Snapchat and makes Facebook look like the old grandpa that just isn’t is as cool as it used to be. I agree it’s not as cool as it was but here’s why I think it will avoid any brutal Goodfella’s type murder from Snapchat

  • The age of the users: it’s clear from Casey’s video that the snapchat generation are very young and in this example mostly girls (that’s likely the result of Jerome’s influence!). It nonetheless demonstrates that whilst Snapchat has an avid following, they’re young and this is backed up by having a 50% smartphone penetration in the US in the age range 18-24 year olds. However, Facebook is still the leading social media app among 18-34 year olds with a smart phone penetration of 75.6%. Yes Snapchat is making ground on Facebook and Facebook needs an injection of the cool factor but despite the threat to its dominance people won’t leave Facebook yet, there’s too many of their friends on it, too much activity, too many groups, messages and pages that they interact with.

 

  • They’re different platforms: once upon a time there was only room for one sherif in town whether it be Friendster, MySpace or Facebook but that’s changed. There’s room for more than one these days as more people have flocked to social networks and are happy to use different apps for different functions. People don’t want or expect one app to do all things, they’ll go to Instagram for filters, Pinterest for nice pictures and vine for short snappy videos. Each serve their purpose and Snapchat whilst fun for pictures and videos won’t offer all the functionality that Facebook does and nor should it and so there’s no immediate reason to delete your Facebook account yet

 

  • Video on mobile: this one’s close to home as I’m in the final stages of developing BeBirbal (Twitter: @bebirbal) and I totally agree that video hasn’t been provided to the public in the best way yet. However, with two-thirds of mobile data expected to be video by 2017 I feel as though there will be an influx of video apps that will try to be the solution. Is Snapchat the answer? It’s great for the time being but something tells me there’ll be an array of options coming soon. And would Snapchat’s stories be enough to leave Facebook, probably not, but it’s where I go for real-time video and then return to Facebook to continue scrolling through my news feed.

These are just my thoughts, you might have a different opinion which I’d love to hear. I’m a massive fan of Casey’s (I watched every video he’d uploaded to YouTube in one sitting when I discovered him and check Snapchat to see his stories) but I just thought I’d add my thought on this video

Have a great day!

 

 


The new iPhone 6 and video: how it effects BeBirbal

Posted Thursday, September 11th, 2014

So what have we learnt tonight about the iPhone 6 and the improvement to video?

From the apple.com site just published:
The iSight camera doesn’t only take great photos. It lets you shoot stunning 1080p HD video at 60 fps, capture more dramatic slo-mo video, and for the first time, create time-lapse videos. Continuous autofocus provides constant focus as you capture your footage. And cinematic video stabilization keeps your shots steady, even when you’re not.

What does this do for BeBirbal?
Simply, it improves video recording for users to capture moments and share. Secondly, time-lapse functionality will encourage people to record more video which will again generate more content. Any improvements in user experience and increased technology will no doubt make people excited to make their own short videos and with any new content they’ll want to share it.

We’re excited about the new video improvements and how the quality and fun of BeBirbal’s content will improve. Will time-lapse make you record more videos?
