Facebook Tests Pinterest-Style Feature Called ‘Collections’

Watch out, Pinterest. Facebook may be dishing out a little bit of competition. In case you were a little bit off the grid because of the Columbus Day holiday, on Monday the social network began testing a new feature called ‘Collections,’ which allows marketers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products. According to TechCrunch, these posts save and share products to a “Wishlist” on Facebook users’ profiles, and feature a “Buy” button that users can click on to make purchases offsite. Facebook is testing the feature with 7 retail partners — Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus, Smith Optics, and Fab.com.

A Strange Trip

Today kicks off the 1 DEFA Film Poster a Day project. A project that I’ve had on the back burner for sometime – 10+ years to be exact.

The collection was acquired from a film fanatic in Dresden who I’m sure spent most of his DDR years in the projection booth. Fortunately for me, he somehow managed to save one poster from every film of the course of his DEFA career.

Beginning today, yes you’ve guessed it, I’ll begin posting one DEFA Film Poster a day – at least that’s my intention. So enjoy and engage. As always Retweet and Share across your social channels.
