Media execs say that IGTV isn't as sophisticated as YouTube or Facebook when it comes to surfacing content — but are still bullish on the platform for reaching a lucrative audience. IGTV doesn't have ads yet but brands' channels can still appear next to questionable content.

A Guide To Brooklyn Beckham's Dainty, Dad-Inspired Tattoos

This story was originally published on April 2, 2017.David Beckham has quite an extensive body art collection — one that spans more than 40 tattoos starting from his neck all the way down to his legs.

Blogger Lyn Slater Is Sick Of Being Singled Out For Her Age

We're thinking it was perhaps posted prematurely and then pulled. Either that or we can't navigate Instagram. 50-50 shot. But! We did c...
