Not everyone has the time and skill to generate a simple 2-3 minutes social video for Facebook or Instagram. Stitching your video clips and adding music can be all easy to achieve on iOS, but adding styled, custom text? It can be bloody difficult feat especially for a non-techie person who easily gets intimidated by video editing apps.

iOS' built-in video editing app iMovie doesn't make the cut either. Their “Add Text” overlay functionality is just plain boring, unusable. iMovie is decent enough in combining your clips with nice transitions and custom audio background but not in adding custom styled text.

The hunt for Canva for video

I had this interesting challenge last week where I needed to add a few texts to my travel videos. And me being a non-multimedia person, I'd rather do it straight on my iPhone and totally skip the headache of editing them with Adobe Premier or Quik, which for me are all complicated to use.

With that said, I had to check out and try nearly almost all video editing apps on iOS that allow me to add a text overlay for my videos. Some are very promising but one app that really stood out: Vont.

What is Vont?

Vont, currently available on iOS, lets you add highly customizable text overlays to videos. You have the flexibility to choose your own font or use Vont's font collections, change font sizes and colors. And the best part? It lets you insert multiple text overlays to any given video timeframe.

And the fun doesn't stop there. Vont also lets you add transitions to each text overlay, giving you full control how you want your text enters the viewport.

Here's Vont in action:

It's easy to imagine Vont as Canva for videos. First off, Vont interface is so neat and it's a delight to use, almost similar to Canva.

For the uninitiated, Canva is a must-have app that lets you create professional-looking photos and banners for all your social media needs. Its suite of pre-made layouts makes it easy to create graphics, cards, flyers, invitations, and posters straight from your iPhone or iPad.

The true strength of Canva lies in its ability to let anyone — with or without design experience — generate professional-looking visuals for their marketing needs.

Now, if you're looking for Canva for video alternative offering the same editing experience, then, you've got to check out Vont.

Whether you're using Instagram for business or not, writing a killer caption and well-optimized hashtags is a must. Ask any Instagram marketer it's second most tricky part immediately next to generating the visuals to post on Instagram.

A good caption should drive user engagements and virality, while a relevant set of hashtags ensures you have the most optimal reach to get the exposure you need. People discover interesting posts thru hashtags, and it's a good opportunity for your brand to get discovered and ultimately earn followers.

While the best way to come up with words to accompany your Instagram post is to write it yourself, it doesn't hurt to try and get some assistance from new breed of apps to do just that.

Excel Gets OCR Support, Lets You Snap Tables and Convert Into Editable Spreadsheet

In this post, we'll be featuring an Android and iOS app that should help you decide what captions to post next.

Caption AI - Your Smart Instagram Caption Assistant ()

Caption AI currently hosts 15,000 captions (and growing) grouped into easy to navigate categories. Running out of caption idea for your next Instagram post? Just launch the app, open an image to post and Caption AI will automatically detect what caption and hashtags to post based on your picture.

Not happy with the generated caption? Just tap on any of the categories like Nature, Fitness, Travel, and Caption AI automatically suggests a caption for you.

Of course the auto-generated captions aren't original. They're mostly coming from third-party sources that curate popular lines and quotes from notable people and writers. Perhaps in the next update the developer gives proper attribution to each line.

This Android app can also suggest the most popular hashtags relevant to your post. So next time you're stuck deciding what to post, check out this app.

Auto Caption - Get Caption Ideas for Instagram (, )

Another app that I am pretty much impressed is Auto Caption for iOS. The moment you open a photo to post, it automatically detects whether it's ocean, mountain or food. Auto Caption will then suggest a caption and hashtags based on what it sees.

It's pretty clever and helpful app ideally recommended for Instagram marketers or casual Instagrammers.

Wrapping it up

Again, the above-mentioned apps aren't for everyone. A more personalized and well-thought out captions will still do wonders in your Instagram marketing efforts. But if doing so takes you forever, then, maybe time to explore those apps?

In my previous post, I demonstrated how to skip long introduction part of any given video on YouTube. By specifying start time parameter, I demonstrated how to quickly jump to specific time, seconds or minutes while streaming your favourite YouTube video.

In this post, I'm going to show you another tip on how to grab, rip and download specific parts of YouTube video. Here you can save time and download only those specific portions you need by specifying start time and end time of any given video on YouTube and even other media sources such as Google Video, Sevenload, MySpace, Dailymotion (HQ), Vimeo (HQ), Metacafe, MyVideo, Veoh, many others.

Download Specific Parts, Portions of YouTube Video

Here's how to convert and download specific parts of YouTube video with Clip Converter:

  1. Visit Clip Converter official website.
  2. Paste your YouTube URL at 'Media URL' and press Continue.

  4. Press the 'Start' button at the bottom to start the conversion.
  5. This may take several minutes. After the conversion is finished you can download the converted file.

You don't need to download entire full length video on YouTube and edit it using video-editing software out there when you just want specific parts of the video. Clip Converter comes with revolutionary functionality that are missing on most online video converters/downloaders out there.

Alternative to ClipConverter

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could have instant lyrics while viewing YouTube music videos?

It’s now possible with a browser extension called YouTube Instant Lyrics by Rob W. Aside from YouTube, it’s also good news for music streamers using Grooveshark and Spotify.

It works so simply. When you open a YouTube video page, the lyrics panel shows itself by adding a small screen. Since most YouTube music videos display accurate information about the song’s name and artist, this available data is used to directly request the lyrics from one of several sources. If not, a search is done based on the video title.

Automatically Search, Display Lyrics of the Current Song for Grooveshark, Spotify and YouTube

The added screen can be dragged, resized, toggled, or closed. Should no lyrics be found at any of the given sources, a link to Google will be given instead. A search box is provided for those who want to search for lyrics for a different song.

(A draggable & resizable panel with lyrics next to a YouTube music video)



On Spotify and Grooveshark, lyrics are searched and displayed when a new song is played. Aside from Google, the Bing search engine is sometimes used to look up the correct URL.

The YouTube Instant Lyrics extension works well on browser platforms for Google Chrome extension and Firefox add-on. The extension also works for Safari, Opera, and Internet Explorer.

Sources for the lyrics include popular sites such as lyrics.wikia.com, lyrics.com, metrolyrics.com, lyricstime.com, lyricsmode.com, lyricsmania.com, darklyrics.com, and musica.com.

Now here’s a new web app that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “This message will self-destruct in five seconds…” However, some may argue that the concept is not new since “self-destructing” (more likely, self-deleting, in case you’re getting scared) is already being utilized by Burn Note and SnapChat.

The concept of self-deletion is limited to Twitter only. With the new web app, Efemr, your tweets are automatically deleted after a pre-selected amount of time. However, unlike the aforementioned two sites, tweets are often seen and read by a wider audience.

Efemr Automatically Deletes Your Tweets After Given Date and Time (link)

After granting access to your Twitter account, Efemr and you can choose a hashtag time limit to your Twitter messages. For instance, choosing #10 represents 10 minutes. Longer visibility can be done with #1h (1 hour), and so on.

According to the Efemr website, the app is advertised as a tool “to protect your e-reputation and making your Twitter activity more fleeting.” While burn note and snap chat can claim this, it might be harder for Efemr to do so since people normally are fast in re-tweeting or having screenshots of the original message, and in a few minutes, it’s making its circulation rounds.

For Twitter users, using Efemr to cover your tracks is not such a good idea. What it’s probably good for is cleaning up your tweets so you’re not left with months (or years) old messages that you forget to delete. Otherwise, it doesn’t take much effort to use the app so it’s worth giving Efemr a shot, if just to experience something new.

Talk about geeky fun.

Technology is now getting to be more fun and hilarious without being a geek yourself.

PBS Newshour has recently created a new tool (more of a new toy application) that lets users make personal political advertisements easily. It is a great way to get a laugh out of your friends and relatives who will view your political ad. You can even create a dumb political video with you as the villain of the ad.

Make Your Own Political Ad With Your Facebook Data (link)

Whatever political ad you decide to make, whether character, small-town, credential, metro-America, biographical, or attack type, it will be fun and easy to make. All you need to do is to go to https://www.pbs.org/newshour/adlibs/, log in to your Facebook account, and just follow the instructions on the PBS Newshour site. It is that easy.

PBS Newshour

While doing all this, you can even stop at various sections of the video of your choice and insert any Facebook posts or photos you want to insert. You definitely control the ad’s template all throughout.

On the learning side, you get to see just how political ads are made and the rigid guidelines these ads follow. As it turns out, the application does not allow you to make attack ads against anybody on Facebook except yourself.

Previously on this blog we have talked about Loudlee, yet another YouTube-powered web service that provides a whole new option to discover and listen to your favorite music online. Loudlee works by allowing you to search existing playlists on YouTube, and play them on a custom Loudlee player.

Loudlee is already impressive. But here's the problem: you've got to add tracks by batch, and there's no way for you to save your custom playlist, which apparently is a kind of trouble when you decide to leave the site.

Thankfully, there's such a good new web app called VeedList that seemed to fill the void of Loudlee.

Back in the good ‘ol days, Scribd and Slideshare allowed you to host your PowerPoint photo presentations. These sites were very popular at that time. The problem is, you can’t use these sites to create new slideshows from the beginning.

There is also Prezi, Zoho, Microsoft Office web apps, and even Google Docs that are advanced resources you can utilize to create online presentations. However, none of these allows you to create simple slideshows as quickly and easily.

So you have a good collection of videos on YouTube, and realized that a link must be added to every single video uploaded on YouTube (as part of your promotion effort) so users can quickly head over to your site right after or during video playback.

The dreaded timeline feature of Facebook is upon us, and is inevitable.

 Facebook has decided to make the timeline feature mandatory across all its users. Problem is, at once in our lives, we’ve made a pretty bad decision of posting status updates that can make or break our application from a job or can destroy our current relationship. Facebook has no built-in feature that will allow us to delete our previous posts from a certain year.

There was once an Android application called Exfoliate, that they said, kept Mark up all night figuring how to combat the application that automatically deletes things for you. But Facebook has made moves and now the application is not available.

 Here, we present you a “brute-force” alternative that will help you “automate” the cleaning up process of your timeline. This may not be a full automation of the process but will definitely do you a favor.

TOOLS NEEDED:

- A web browser that supports iMacros (e.g. Firefox, Chrome)
- iMacros add-on for your chosen browser
- A little patience
- Common Sense

In this tutorial, we will use the Mozilla Firefox browser.

PROCEDURE:

Step 1 Launch Mozilla Firefox.

Step 2 Download and install iMacros for FireFox.


Just click on the Add to Firefox link and follow on screen instruction to complete installation. After installation, allow it to restart your browser.

Step 3 When Firefox has restarted, go to your Facebook timeline page and start managing your timeline.

To do this thoroughly, I suggest we do it by month instead of by year.

Step 4 On the rightmost part of your timeline page, you will see the timeline. Click on the year you want to start, for this tutorial, I chose the year 2009. Clicking on the year 2009 will expand it with months.

Step 5 Right-click on the month you want to start with and select Open in New Tab.
Close you current tab and let’s start the actual process.

*Note: This will delete every post without giving you the ability to choose which post it deletes or skips.
On our next tab, we will see something like this.
Step 6 Let’s now activate iMacros. Locate the iMacros icon on your browser.


It’s the small icon to the left of the address bar. Click on it to activate the tool.

Once activated you will see this.


Step 7 Right click on the #Currenr.iim and select Edit Macro.

This window will pop-up. Current script may be different in your case.
Step 8 Select all and delete everything written in there and replace it with this.

VERSION BUILD=7401110 RECORDER=FX
REFRESH
TAG POS=1 TYPE=I ATTR=CLASS:mrsimgsp_78bswxsx_580af6
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:DeletePost...
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:BUTTON ATTR=NAME:ok&&VALUE:DeletePost

After doing so, click on save.

Click on the one you saved and click Play. You can also look at he Repeat Macro portion and select the number of times you want the process to execute.

Enjoy.

iMacros: Mass Delete Previous Status, Wall Posts On Facebook By Year/Month

Just recently Facebook was again stormed by another dreadful attack. The coordinated spamming attack that lashed out Facebook this time is no more ordinary: pornographic and violent images have infiltrated news feeds and have gone viral across the web.

Clickjacking was the method used by notorious hackers responsible for the attack; they provide you with fake and eye-popping links (often coming from a trusted friend) which if clicked, advanced scripting gets executed within your browser, causing the spam link to spread even farther.

Check If Your AntiVirus Is Working Using Only Your NotePad

If you've been victimized by this extremely unpleasant attack, it's recommended that you change your account password as soon as possible, and don't bother to click on eye-catching links posted by your Facebook friend especially if you're in doubt.


Facebook seems to have struggled too much in eliminating this sort of attack. But you too can help thwart these attacks and make Facebook cooler again. Here's 5 Security Tips Steps On How To Stop, Prevent Facebook Spam from farther propagating on Facebook.

Slow internet connection, system's failure and power interruption are three major reasons of failed video uploads on YouTube. And sure you don't want to start the upload all over again on YouTube, yes?

Learn How To Load YouTube Video Fast

Good news is YouTube has just revamped its video uploading facility which now supports resumable video uploads of up to 15 minutes in length. Starting today, YouTube will automatically jump back to the point where your video upload was last interrupted. This truly is a great news especially for people who upload YouTube videos from a shared network or in an open wi-fi where internet connection can be terribly slow.

For this resumable video upload of YouTube to work, your video should no more than 15 minutes in length. You may also need to switch to advanced browser such as Firefox 4 or higher, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer for this video resumption to work.

YouTube Now Supports Resumable Video Uploads

The problem: you have uploaded a very long video presentation on YouTube and all of a sudden you discovered that something's wrong with the audio or the video doesn't have a music background at all.

This happened to me one time, and the process of replicating those defective videos was truly tiresome. I had to download the video from my YouTube account, do the audio modification and finally re-upload the video back to YouTube.

Download Portions, Specific Parts Of Any YouTube Video

Such long frustrating process is not only a waste of time but sure can be a good ground why YouTube may ban you anytime from using the service. Remember that YouTube discourage you to upload same copy of videos -- that's a spam. So, how can you change or replace the audio background of YouTube videos without having to download them?

Whether you're dealing with simple video tutorial or complex video walkthroughs, here is a smart way out on how to quickly change, replace the audio background of already uploaded video on YouTube.

AudioSwap Lets You Change Music Background Of Any YouTube Video On The Fly

Here’s how to change audio background of already uploaded video on YouTube:

Step 2 Choose the video where you want to add the background music. Click “Edit” dropdown and choose “Audioswap”.

Ever wanted to know who deleted you on Facebook? Ever wondered why the number of your Facebook friends has changed? Want to get notified when someone removes you as friend on Facebook? Facebookers who're curious (and hurt) about those who took time removing you as friend on Facebook can now take advantage of a handful of tools that tell you whether someone unfriends you on Facebook.

At first, I thought of it as a scam. Who would ever thought this is possible when Facebook has this restrictive policy especially when it comes to privacy thing? But again I was wrong; it is actually possible to find out who unfriended or removed you as friend on Facebook, and am going to show you how:

Find Out Who Deleted, Unfriended You On Facebook

The first method that we're going to use is Unfriend Finder, a browser extension designed for major web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera. Unfriend Finder, as what the name goes, tracks your friend's list and notifies you for any irregularities or "unfriends" made by your friends.

For Mozilla Firefox Users:

If you're using Firefox, you need to install Greasemonkey first, it's a Firefox add-on, to make Unfriend Finder work for you. By the time you have Greasemonkey installed, download Unfriend Finder for Firefox. Once Unfriend Finder is installed, close the tab with Facebook, or/and open a new tab and go to Facebook.com. You should be welcomed with the introduction to Unfriend Friend, where it will take you through the necessary steps, and tips you need to get started.

For Google Chrome Users:

For non-Firefox users like Chrome, the process should be fairly simple. Just search for Unfriend Finder in Google Web Store or you can download Unfriend Finder for Chrome here. Once installed, go to Facebook.com and you should get the same welcome screen.

NOTE: Be sure to uninstall all previous extensions of Unfriend Finder to make it work.

"Who Deleted Me?" also is worth a try. This is a free service that notifies you via email whenever a friend removes you as friend on Facebook. The only downside for this is that email notification is delivered weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. And "unfriends" made prior to the installation/integration of "Who Deleted Me?" are not recorded.

How To: Find Who Deleted, Removed You As Friend On Facebook

Prompted by the recent launch of video chat service of Google+, social networking giant Facebook fired back by rolling out another exciting service -- the video chat.

Powered by Skype, the new video chat service of Facebook lets you video call your friends in realtime, just like what you normally do on Skype. And the best part about it is that you can leave video messages to your offline friends, and have your friends read through your video message at later time.

The new Facebook video chat is currently available in India. So if you're in India, find time to check the service out and see for yourself how video chat of Facebook really works. For those who're outside India, let me just give you a quick view about the service by pointing out the most important things you need to know, as follows:
  • Of course, you and your Facebook friends will be needing a functional microphone and webcam to see and hear each other in real time. If your friends don't have webcams but have a working microphone, you can still hear them but no way to see them talking.
  • The first time you make a video call to your friend or your Facebook friend tries to video chat you right the first time, you'll be asked to complete the video chat setup. To start the setup process, just call a friend by simply clicking the video icon at the top of your chat window. From there you should be able to see "Set Up" button, click on it and follow the instructions on how to set up video calling on Facebook.
  • By the time you've successfully setup the Facebook video chat, the call you've started above with your friend should connect automatically. If nothing happens, call again by clicking the video icon at the top of your chat window.
  • To make a call, just visit friend's profile and click on the "Call" button in the top right corner
  • When a friend answers your call, you may have to wait a moment for your call to connect before the video chat begins.
  • Dates of each successful call you make and receive are saved within your ongoing conversation history in Facebook Messages.
  • Only confirmed friends can call you.
  • As with Skype, you can specify whether or not you're available for video chat. To set your video chat availability status, click the settings icon in the right corner of the chat list and check/uncheck "Available to Chat"
  • You can block a friend or group of friends from calling or chatting with you
  • Facebook video chat is currently not supported on Linux-based computers.
