How to fit 24 rooms in a 330 square feet apartment

Meet: The Domestic Transformer.

I came across a video of this very small (330 square ft) apartment. The owner of the place is the architect Gary Chang. He grew up in a tiny apartment himself which actually inspired him to create the flexible apartment.

The way it works looks actually pretty simple. By using sliding walls, fold-down tables and chairs he is able to transform his bedroom into a kitchen, his kitchen into a bathroom, his bathroom into a study and so on. In total, he can create 24 rooms in this small space!

4 Social Media highlights of 2010

Now that we’ve reached the end of the year I started thinking about which Social Media moments pop-up while going over the past year.

1. Old Spice Guy – great brand engagement

This for me is number one. Simply because the Old Spice Guy campaign was such a viral success and there were a lot of failed and successful spoofs!

One of the things I really liked about this campaign was the timing. They created 186 video responses in such a short time frame, that is was almost a real-time response. Another thing I think was good (and is also something where a lot of campaigns fail at) is the fact that they found the right balance. The video responses were directed to anyone that tweeted him, from famous people like Ashton Kutcher to John Doe. He even had some advice for the US president.

This made his followers even more eager to engage with him and as a result with the brand Old Spice.

I think we will be seeing more of these fast paced campaigns in the future.

Why I don’t LOVE HootSuite anymore

Ever since I discovered HootSuite, I started recommending it to anybody looking for a great Soclal Media management tool which could be shared by team members. I just loved the versatility and ease of use of the tool.

I especially used to recommend it to non-profit organizations that relied heavily on volunteers. HootSuite was the perfect tool for them to add volunteers as team members to their Social Media profile without having to share the main login details. And if a volunteer didn’t have time to be active on the Social Media platforms anymore they could easily remove that volunteer from the list.

I also loved the fact that you could add different social accounts (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, even a WordPress account!)

Facebook Messages: A privacy nightmare or the future of messaging?

Last Monday Facebook announced a new messaging system. They say its a new evolution of Messages.

The new service combines SMS, chat, e-mail and Messages. You decide how you want to talk to your friends. Which ever form of communication you choose, it can all be managed from your Facebook account. You can decide from who you would like to receive information as well. If you don’t want someone to be able to sent you information you can just block them.
