Seven Ways to Up Your Spring Break Social Media Game

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Let’s be honest. No matter where you go on vacation, every possible photo op has been done to death. If you’re looking to set yourself apart from the crowd creatively, you’re going to need to include some new tactics into your repertoire. Here are seven ways to set your social media game on fire during your next vacation.

1.) Elevate your photography, literally.

One way to set your vacation photos apart from the crowd is to take to the skies with a drone. Drone photography will open up an entirely new way to see the sights of your destination, and also make for a pretty unique selfie opportunity. The current generation of drones is easier than ever to fly, so with minimal practice, you can be adding some killer aerial shots to your vacation feed. Take a look at how using a drone captured a much more dramatic view of our rooftop solar panels:

How Much do you Use your Smartphone?

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

This morning, AT&T announced new data plans for Smartphone users. There are two options, the DataPlus plan and the DataPro plan. Existing customers have the option to stick with their current data plan or switch to the new lower-cost plans.

The new plan options will cost customers less than the “unlimited” plans they are currently a part of, as long as they don’t go over the allowed data use per month. Exceeding the data allowance per month will incur a charge per gigabyte or per 200 megabytes depending on the plan they use.

The DataPlus plan allows 200 megabytes of data, AT&T uses the example that 200 megabytes is enough to send and receive 1,000 emails with no attachments, 150 emails with attachments, view 400 Web pages, post 50 times on a social media site, and watch 20 minutes of streaming video. The DataPlus plan will cost $15 a month. If participants in the DataPlus plan exceed their allotted data usage, AT&T will automatically add an additional 200 megabytes at $15, directly to your bill.

The DataPro plan gives subscribers 2 gigabytes of data usage for $25 per month. AT&T explains 2 gigabytes is equivalent to sending and receiving 10,000 emails without attachments, send and receive 1,500 emails with attachments, view 4,000 Web pages, post 500 photos to social media sites, and watch 200 minutes of streaming video. If a customer exceeds the 2 gigabytes of data usage, an additional gigabyte will be automatically added to you bill for $10.

Are you concerned about overages on the new data plan options? Well, AT&T helps you manage your account by showing current and past usage at
