Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPperfectpair

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.

Some things are just better together. This weekend, the goal is to take photos and videos that capture duos that complement and enhance each other, as in this featured photo from Mark Abramson (@markabramsonphoto). Here are some tips to get you started:

  • A hammock and a book, coffee and bagels, two best friends — some things just naturally go together. As you go about your weekend, take photos of some of your own perfect pairs.
  • Not every match is so simple! Keep an eye out for more surprising duos — much like this pedestrian and matching billboard — that might be hidden in plain sight.
  • Once you’ve found an interesting pairing, how can you use camera tools to further enhance the match? Try taking a #Boomerang of two running buddies or a video of a dog and cat strolling through your backyard.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPperfectpair hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Dancer Angelnae Randalle’s Passion and Persistence

To learn more about Angelnae, follow @angel_dancer_1 on Instagram.

“The more the better.” This is Angelnae Randalle’s (@angel_dancer_1) stance when it comes to practice. On average, the 14-year-old, who currently lives in Michigan, rehearses 24 to 30 hours a week — and that number only goes up when a competition or convention is on the horizon. You might be surprised to learn that Angelnae started dancing just three years ago; her grandmother signed her up for her first class and passed away shortly thereafter. “She was my biggest supporter,” says Angelnae. “I think she is very proud of me.”

Despite Stage 4 Breast Cancer, Brittney Beadle Thrives

This post is in honor of #BreastCancerAwareness month, observed in October in the US.

Brittney Beadle (@brittneybeadle) does not put off anything for tomorrow. “Do it now,” she advises. “Live in the moment and enjoy your life.” In May 2015, Brittney was diagnosed with metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer, at the age of 18. “I felt I was alone,” Brittney says. “There are some young women in their 20s who I found, but still no one who was “my age” young, with breast cancer.” By sharing her journey, she hopes to help others in a similar position. “Whenever I have to go through a new treatment that’s really hard — like when I had radiation to my brain — I think, ‘OK. Yes, this sucks. I have to do this. But you know what? I get to live.’”

Wise Words from 13-Year-old Leia Immanuel

This post is in celebration of #NationalBodyConfidenceDay in the US.

Comfortable, secure, confident in your own skin — this is what body positivity means to Leia Immanuel (@artdr3am). For the past three years, Leia has dealt with hormonal acne. “I used to try and cover it all up with makeup,” says the eighth-grade student from New York. “Slowly, I began to accept that my acne is natural. I’ve grown more comfortable in my skin and body, and it’s changed the way I’ve seen people and the world.” Her advice to others? “Self-confidence comes differently for everyone. Being confident in your skin takes time and learning. Stay true to yourself and most importantly, keep an open mind. People are different, and when you accept that, you can accept your differences.”

Go Inside a 100 Percent Sustainable Farm in Australia

Today is #WorldFoodDay, a day dedicated to action and awareness for those who are without food security.

From the golden pellets of sprouted grain they feed their chickens to the ingredients that make it to their kitchen table for supper, nearly every bite of food Kirsten Bradley and her family eats is grown on their 100 percent sustainable farm, Milkwood (@milkwood_permaculture). “Homegrown food tends to be very delicious,” says Kirsten, who lives in Victoria, Australia. But Milkwood is much more than a family farm growing great flavors; it’s also a school where people can learn how to build sustainable farm systems. Kirsten and an extended community of educators offer courses on everything from natural beekeeping and mushroom cultivation to biointensive growing, an organic vegetable growing method designed to maximize harvest in small spaces.

Soon it’ll be growing season in Australia, so Kirsten’s family is busy planting tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings and making sure the bees pollinate their fruit trees in hopes of a big summer bounty. And then? They wait. “Growing of food is not an instant process, and it needs patience and perseverance,” she says. “But watching people bloom out of consumerism into makers and doers is really quite beautiful.”

The Story Behind Artist Coco Dávez’s Signature Style

Discover more stories from the Spanish-speaking community on @instagrames.

(This interview was conducted in Spanish.)

Artist Coco Dávez’s (@cocodavez) “faceless faces” give pop culture icons a new feel. “I started with a portrait of Patti Smith. I was going to throw it away, but before doing that, I had so much paint left over that I did a brushstroke on the face to fill in all of that,” says the artist from Madrid of discovering her signature style. “A lightbulb went off.”

When she was 21, Coco went to live in London with the intention of studying photography, but painting still called to her. Her inspiration? “Artists from the 20th century like Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder and David Hockney.”

It’s a Sweet Life and a Team Effort for Baked by Melissa

It’s #NationalDessertDay, and we’re celebrating with a NYC-based company that bakes up bite-sized sweet treats. Follow @bakedbymelissa) to learn more.

Melissa Ben-Ishay transformed her passion into her livelihood — but it only happened after she came up against some tough times. “In the summer of 2008, I was fired from my job in advertising,” says the 33-year-old from New York City. “Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I went home and I baked four batches of cupcakes (s’more, peanut butter cup, cookie dough and tie-dye).” The very next day, her best friend’s sister shared the treats at the public relations agency where she worked, and the right connections were made. “The rest is history!” says Melissa, who is the president and chief product officer of @bakedbymelissa). The company currently has 13 retail locations in the US plus a nationwide shipping operation.

“There is no better way to learn than through experience and by surrounding yourself with people who have skills that you don’t,” says Melissa of her team. “The opportunity to collaborate with hardworking, passionate, like-minded people is the best part of my job.”

Now You Can Order Food with Facebook

Facebook - Vie, 10/13/2017 - 15:00

By Alex Himel, VP of Local

Ordering food for takeout or delivery is supposed to be simple. That’s the point. But somehow it’s gotten complicated. First you need to decide what to eat, then you have to sift through a bunch of options and services.

Today, we’re taking the time out of finding what you want to eat by officially launching the ability to order food for pick-up or delivery, directly on Facebook. People already go to Facebook to figure out what to eat by reading about nearby restaurants, and seeing what their friends say about them. So, we’re making it even easier.

Facebook combines options from a number of food ordering services like EatStreet, Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow and Olo, as well as restaurants like Jack in the Box, Five Guys, Papa John’s, and Panera, so you don’t have to search through multiple places to find what you’re looking for. From local spots to national chains, Facebook connects you with old favorites and new discoveries in just a few taps. You can even check out what your friends have to say about a restaurant before you order your food.

You can browse restaurants nearby by visiting the Order Food section in the Explore menu. On this page, you can browse food options and select Start Order when you’ve found what you’re looking for. If the restaurant you want to order from offers takeout or delivery with multiple services, you can select which service you’d like to use. For example, if you have an account with Delivery.com, you can easily order with your existing login. If you don’t have an account with that service, you can quickly and easily sign up, without leaving the Facebook app.

We’ve been testing this since last year, and after responding to feedback and adding more partners, we’re rolling out everywhere in the US on iOS, Android and desktop.

People will be able to browse restaurants near them that take orders via Delivery.com, DoorDash, ChowNow, Zuppler, EatStreet, Slice, and Olo, as well as directly from restaurants including Papa John’s, Wingstop, Panera, Jack in the BoxTGI Friday’s, Denny’s, El Pollo Loco, Chipotle, Five Guys and Jimmy John’s.

Becoming Stronger Through Alopecia with Shalice Ader

To see more from Shalice’s daily life in Oahu, follow @heyshalice on Instagram.

“Just be yourself” is a defining motto for 18-year-old Shalice Ader (@heyshalice), who was diagnosed with alopecia when she was less than 2 years old. “That motto has stuck with me and motivates me every day,” says Shalice, who has lost most of her body hair to the autoimmune disease. “And I want to share that message with my followers — the only way you can love yourself is to be yourself.”

After wearing a wig for most of her years growing up in Oahu, Hawaii, Shalice decided she didn’t want to hide her baldness anymore. “It was tough because I became insecure,” she explains. But by removing wigs from her daily life, Shalice opened up and gained confidence. “I think my alopecia has made me stronger. If I didn’t have it, I would not be the person I am today.”

Meet Dallas Clayton, One of the #KindComments Muralists

We’re partnering with artists from the Instagram community, like Dallas, to turn city walls around the world into colorful murals, inspiring #KindComments. Visit a wall, take a photo or video and share #KindComments to make someone’s day. If you can’t check out a mural in person, participate by using one of the new kindness-themed heart-shaped stickers in Instagram Stories. These are also created by members of our global community.

“I write kids’ books, because it’s a thing that very few people do in the world,” says Dallas Clayton (@dallasclayton). “It’s very much like telling someone that you sell rainbows or produce magic from your fingertips.” Today, Dallas’ aesthetic and stories go beyond the pages of books and get translated to different surfaces. Even murals. “I love to go to a place, take something that’s drab and add a little bit of color to it collectively with good people who want to share in an experience,” says Dallas, who prefers to let the walls speak to him — rather than go into the process with a set plan or crew. “I just want it to be participatory. I don’t even want to be the one painting the thing. I want everyone to be painting the thing, and I want everyone to know that they could paint the thing. There’s an elementary school down the street from you right now that doesn’t have a mural in it that you can go paint for totally free and stoke out a thousand kids.”

Hard Questions: A Live Interview With Sheryl Sandberg

Facebook - Jue, 10/12/2017 - 00:30

By Elliot Schrage, Vice President of Policy and Communications

Since its launch last June, Hard Questions has explored difficult topics that matter to Facebook’s global community — explicitly and openly confronting our handling of terrorism, hate speech and Russian ads on the platform.

Your response to Hard Questions inspired us to open a new channel that we hope will produce greater insights into the challenges facing Facebook and other technology companies.

This week we begin a series of interviews with the digital news site Axios. Our goal is to push ourselves toward even greater transparency and to participate in tough  questioning by an independent, highly credible news organization with public policy and technology expertise. Axios editors and reporters will fully control the questions and resulting coverage.

The kickoff is a wide-ranging interview with our Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg by Axios co-founder Mike Allen on October 12 at 9AM ET. You can watch it here and on Facebook Live.

In the coming months, Facebook executives will sit for interviews with Axios reporters and editors on some of the most crucial issues in social media. We’ll also be working with other news outlets and independent groups wanting access to our executives.

In all of this our goal is to open ourselves to hard questions, to be candid about our thinking and to invite constructive criticism and discussion. We hope to make better, more informed decisions with and for our communities worldwide and we hope you’ll participate.

Read more about our new blog series Hard Questions. We want your input on what other topics we should address — and what we could be doing better. Please send suggestions to hardquestions@fb.com.

Exploring with 17-Year-Old Photographer Fabio Zingg

To see more of Fabio’s photography, follow @_fabiozingg on Instagram.

(This interview was conducted in German.)

Boredom brought Fabio Zingg (@_fabiozingg) to photography. Two years ago, when he was restless on a family vacation, the now 17-year-old from Busswil, Switzerland, picked up a camera for the first time. During the week, he’s a commercial banking apprentice but when the weekend rolls around, he always has his camera in tow. “It is always a new adventure, and I am always impressed with how beautiful nature is,” says Fabio, who is particularly fascinated with playing with range. “The larger a mountain appears and the smaller the person is, the more it becomes clear how small we truly are.”
