- Metered space: Those year-end roundups are a great way to scan trends on relatively new social media sites. Here are Instagram's top posts and trends from 2013.
- Reserved space: If you're posting original photos on Pinterest, you'll want to add a watermark with your copyright. Here's how.
- Not parked for long: New data from Netflix shows that half of its viewers finish an entire season of a TV show within one week. (They're all the ones pining for the return of House of Cards right now, she said from personal experience.)
- Fighting over the one space: If YouTube were a TV channel, ts revenues would strike fear in the hearts of the networks. It's another way to get a sense of just how dominant and persistent the online video trend has become.

Now you can see the emerging agenda for one of them, the Speechwriters & Business Communicators Conference happening in Oxford, UK, in April. Don't miss the master class pre-conference session, either.
- I'm parking elsewhere: This food blogger has given up on her Facebook page because FB's driving fewer and fewer views. I'm seeing a similar problem for those of us who aren't big brands. What would you do?
- Move a little to the left: Twitter is supposedly gearing up to let you edit tweets. You heard me. Business Insider looks at the implications for brands.
