As vertical video becomes more popular, there is an increasing demand to be able to embed those videos on webpages.

Here is how to add those videos to your Squarespace website in all their vertical glory!
Everyone is going crazy for video right now. But don’t forget this one simple fact: Facebook videos autoplay with the sound turned off. This means that someone has to tap the video to hear the sound. So what if they’re browsing on the bus, or while watching TV, or at the library, or while they’re not supposed to be on Facebook? Chances are slim to none they’re going to turn the sound on. What if they are hard of hearing? You’ve now lost all of these viewers because there isn’t anything engaging about a silent talking head.

Here are the steps to make sure you never miss another Facebook Live from your favourite page.
Ever wonder how search engine results are compiled or what you need to do to appear higher in those results? Google recently added the ability to “Post” to your Google Listing and the combined power of the image and keyword-rich text is a recipe for success for local businesses wanting to climb the search ranks.
If you want to keep your personal identity completely separate from your business, then this post is not for you. If you think you’re only going to use your personal profile to promote your business, then this post is not for you either and you should definitely check out this webinar to see why that’s a bad idea.
If you are looking for a way to make sure people know what you for a living and provide them plenty of ways to see what you can do for them, then read on!
You take all of your photos on your iPhone, but you want to edit them before you post, and the editing apps on your phone just aren’t up to snuff or you just prefer to work from your laptop or desktop. Maybe you’ve lost your cable. Or maybe you can’t figure out Photos.
Today is your lucky day. Today I’m going to show you how to get the photos from your iPhone without having to sync your devices, fill up your Dropbox/Drive account, or send yourself a dozen emails with the photos attached.
Up until a week ago, in order to do a screenshare on Facebook Live you had to use third party software like OBS - Open Broadcaster Software (free but steep learning curve) or Be.Live (easy to use but expensive). I was super pumped when Facebook announced that they had added built-in screensharing functionality to Facebook Live! Here is how it works.
