Every year, there is a new darling of the digital world coming out of South By Southwest (SXSW). This year was no different, with the brand new live-streaming app Meerkat taking its place as the clear darling of the digital influencers at SXSW 2015.

A recent poll, carried out in January of this year, found that most adults have concerns regarding their online data. 71% (of 1,012 adults surveyed) stated that they wanted their online communications to remain private unless they gave prior consent. However, 43% stated that they wanted their private accounts to be deleted following their death, unless they had given prior consent for someone else to access them.
So, you thought emojis were just a millennial fad? Well, think again. Emojis allow advertisers to portray real-world expressions and feelings in one simple image, enabling them to easily add sentiment and emotions into their ad, without the use of words.
