Optimize your Instagram profile link with URL forwarding
Whether you’re a blogger, a small business, or just have an exceptional fondness of selfies; Instagram is a powerful marketing tool that most of us (excluding John Rupp) are familiar with. However, it comes with one drawback—you can only have one link in your entire Instagram profile.

Why Shia LaBeouf needs a .LIVE domain ASAP
Earlier this week, Shia LaBeouf had the online world in a flurry once more with his latest stunt: Live streaming himself riding an elevator at Oxford College—for 24 hours straight.
This is not the first of Shia LeBouf’s live stream spectacles. Earlier this year, he took part in #ALLMYMOVIES, in which he spent three days straight watching every movie he’d ever had a role in for 24 hours a day while a camera live streamed his reaction to millions of online viewers.
While these live streaming extravaganzas may be in a league of their own, it’s hard to deny that live streaming is gaining momentum online. Live streaming services like Periscope, Twitch, Ustream, and more are bringing in thousands of avid live streamers and millions of viewers who are interested in these broadcasts.
