And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.Forget those rainy days for a moment and let’s go back to September. The month of changes and modifications, some people are back at work or school again, some may be going to another city or school, others are still on vacation. What about social media, was it still on vacation or did it took some great changes? Let’s have a look:
#1 – Say it with GIFs in DM’s
New Instagram update! At the end of September, Instagram introduced GIF stickers in Direct messages. GIFs have become an acceptable form of communication and make it so easy to express yourself in countless visual and funny ways. Now you can text your friends any GIF you want in Instagram Direct. You just need to tap the GIF button and choose the one you like. If you can’t choose and are being spontaneous, you can type ‘random’ and it will send a random surprising GIF.
#2 – #DieselHateCouture
Diesel has launched a brand new collection, known as Ha(u)te Couture. This whole new FW18 collection is based on a fashion campaign against online abuse. The collection is featured by stars like Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, actors from the Netflix show ‘13 Reasons Why’ and many others. All celebrities have customise their own pieces and are literally wearing the worst comments they have ever received and experienced on social media.
‘Haters gonna hate? Ok. We got haters. You got haters. Everybody does.
Do we care? No we don’t. We actually….wear.
Discover the Diesel Haute Couture Collection because the more hate you wear, the less you care.’
#3 – Arctic Monkeys for charity
Arctic Monkeys are already back for a few months but in September they announced on their Instagram a charity action. They have teamed up with Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity to auction 12 limited edition framed prints. All these prints are signed by the band and taken by photographer Zackery Michael. He toured with band during their sixth album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino‘, so these shots are all unique captured moments along the way. Hopefully this inspires other people to also do something for charity.
Well done Arctic Monkeys!

#4 – Levi’s voting campaign
Levi’s has teamed up with Rock The Vote for a new campaign. They support this nonprofit organization because this one is dedicated to building the political power of young people by encouraging them to vote, use their voice and campaign for issues that impact their generation. This is exactly what Levi’s wants to encourage with this campaign, helping people to use their voice. Responding to large upcoming events is a very smart thing to do as a brand. Like Levi’s does in this case, responding on the the midterm elections which are right around the corner.
‘Voting looks good on everyone
It’s your voice. It’s your vote. Use it.’
