Should credit unions use Instagram stories?

first_img 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Over a month ago, Instagram released some new functionality called “Stories.” Some of you may have heard of this already, some of you may not know what I’m talking about at all (and that’s totally okay!).  Basically, Instagram wanted to deliver similar functionality to their platform as Snapchat, such as cute filters and text overlay for videos and photos.Similar to Snapchat, Instagram Stories are only available to your followers for 24 hours, and then they are deleted from Instagram.  To view Stories of accounts you follow, look at the top of your Instagram feed for “circles” and then select one you would like to view.  Instagram then scrolls through Stories automatically (one after the other) for the accounts you follow until it reaches the end of the Stories for that moment in time.Should Credit Unions Use Instagram Stories?Some of you may be surprised by what I’m about to say, but let me just tell you the truth. We love Instagram, but we are not fans of Stories! So don’t make the mistake of adopting Stories to use for your Credit Union, and here are three reasons why:1.

Cornell ranks NY counties on vulnerability to coronavirus, why health officials aren’t worried

first_imgNear the top of the list were Delaware County at number six and Broome County at number seven. “That is a pretty significant portion of our population that is over 80,” said Holochak. “So, we do know they are more at risk. They are part of the population we are putting most of our efforts in.” Following shortly down the lines of 62 counties, Chenango came in at 13 and Tioga at 30. (WBNG) — After Cornell University released a study of the most vulnerable counties in New York, 12 News caught up with local health officials on why some Southern Tier areas ranked so high. Meanwhile, Broome County Public Health Director, Rebecca Kaufman, says the county’s ranking is also due to the older population as well as people grouped in larger facilities such as nursing homes. She says in response to this and other data they are looking at, they have specifically been working with the county to assist the elderly population. “A lot of the group living facilities or senior living facilities will work with the emergency operations center in both planning and procurement of PPE,” said Kaufman.center_img More information on this study can be found on Cornell University’s website. Neighboring counties ranked lower on the list, such as Tompkins County at 52. Kylie Holochak from the Tioga County Health Department says she’s not alarmed by the ranking, adding that more than five percent of the county’s population is people over 80 years old. Holochak says in Tioga County, officials have seen an increase in family households, especially ones with three generations in one home. She advises anyone who tests positive and lives at home to isolate in a part of the home and dedicate a bathroom solely to the individual who is sick.last_img read more

Former CIA Analyst: Intelligence Agencies on High Alert After ISIS Leader’s Death

first_imgPresident Trump’s Sunday morning announcement that Islamic State leader Al-Baghdadi is dead raises the question about the future of ISIS.According to local former CIA analyst Lisa Ruth, U.S. intelligence agencies are on high alert following the news.She says of Al-Baghdadi, “He’s completely ruthless. He’s the one who started the beheadings and burning people alive.” Al-Baghdadi led the group since 2014. President Trump told the nation in a televised address that Al-Baghdadi was killed in a U.S. raid in Syria.Ruth adds, “His death is very important symbolically. It does mean ISIS is no longer what it was.” On the other hand, “Frankly, the risk potential right now over the next several months is fairly high because ISIS is in a position where they’re going to want to prove that they remain relevant.”last_img read more
