"While Instagram’s community of 150 million monthly active users was a fraction of the size of Facebook’s, and even smaller than Twitter’s, the digital marketing organization found that interaction rates for posts made by the 249 prestige brands studied were some 15 times higher than those on Facebook.”

DHCS XVII was a smashing success thanks to all of our esteemed speakers.

Indie first-person platformer which requires basic modular programming skills to help navigate through the levels - video embedded below:
Glitchspace is a first person programming game that’s centred around a visual programming mechanic.
Set in a cyberspace world, you are trying to find a place known as Glitchspace - a by-product of cyberspace and its various glitches. A world that would allow for infinite possibilities, and access across all systems in cyberspace through exploitation.
Through problem solving, it’s up to you how you approach the in-game challenges; find glitches in the cyberspace world, and exploit them in various different ways, allowing for a emergent play experience.
Glitchspace is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and was developed with the Oculus Rift in mind. (Although the Rift is not necessary to play).
The game is currently available in Alpha release - you can find out more from it’s developers here
It also has a Steam Greenlight page here

More Oscars wrap up!
The Oscars on Tumblr: Leo, the dresses, history, and of course, gifs
In case you are one of the few and the brave who actually manages to completely unplug some weekends, we thought we’d let you know that the 86th Annual Academy Awards aired last night. (The above gif is from one of the top posts about the Oscars on Tumblr.)
Absolutely the most popular Oscars-related post was an infographic cataloguing the dresses worn by every Best Actress winner in Oscar history— plus the designer, where available.
The remaining popular Oscar posts show what else is close to Tumblr’s heart: Leonardo DiCaprio’s continued quest to win an Oscar, the best picture nominees in both regular and Lego versions, Oscar BINGO, and history.
The Oscars thank you for your hospitality, Tumblr, and they’ll be back again next year.
More than half of Kickstarter’s $1 billion in pledges was donated in the past 12 months.
