To let advertisers create quick ads, photo-messaging app Snapchat has rolled out a new feature called “Instant Create” on its platform.

“Just select your objective (increase web visits, app installs, or app visits), enter your business website and finalise your targeting. Then you’re ready to publish!” the company wrote in a blog-post, explaining the three steps of the ad-making tool.


For small and medium businesses (SMBs) that lack budgets and resources, Snapchat’s “Instant Create” offers an easy-to-use tool for creating quick single-ad campaigns with minimal design requirements, web portal Marketing Land said on Thursday.

Once provided with a business URL, Instant Create would be able to pull in photos directly from your website to help create an ad.

For quick creatives, users would also have an option of using imported images or uploading new ones from their computers.

Currently, Instant Create only supports Snap Ads.

“Instant Create is available to all advertisers in our self-service Ads Manager. It removes friction from our self-serve tools by decreasing the time and creative investment required,” the company’s blog noted.

The tool would also offer marketers who have yet to advertise on Snapchat, a way to try out the platform without having to over invest in a comprehensive campaign. (IANS)

A Malayali wearing a two-piece Mundu set made of kasavu fabric

Every part of South India changes colour on Onam and Vishu when Malayalis begin their celebrations. They cannot be missed for they decorate themselves in subtle shades of gold and white, and dot the streets in their traditional attire.

The white kerala saree, known as kasavu, has a rather interesting history. It grew to prominence when the Portuguese reached India, and began trade. Gold was exchanged for spices, and women began to incorporate gold into their sarees. The white part of the kasavu is believed to be inspired by the Greco-Roman one-piece, also known as 'toga' or 'palmyrene'.In Ravi Verma's paintings, the Malayali woman is visibly very similar to the European contemporary when she is decked in her adornments.

Acupuncture being performed by an oreintal medicine practitioner

Along with Chinese Traditional Medicine, acupuncture emerged in Asia as a technique to cure people of their disease simply by inserting needles at certain points, where the disease is said to lie.

The practice of acupuncture is believed to have a shamanistic origin. Shamans are those who profess to commune with spirits, ghosts, and the dead. They believed that people were cursed for any number of reasons, and this curse manifested in the form of physical symptoms. All diseases were simply versions of the curse, and when the patient was injected or subjected to moxibustion, which is the burning of particular herbs at various points of the body, the curse left.
