New Delhi, Sep 10, 2017: Indian weddings getting streamed online has become a trend now. So it is common to get updates on social media on couples striking a filmy pose in a choreographed pre-wedding video in some exotic location. But it’s not easy to plan a social media savvy wedding, say experts.

Sanaa Vohra, Founder and CEO of The Wedding Brigade, which is a destination for wedding needs, and wedding jewellery expert Kartik Nayyar, Founder of OSR Jewellers that are into making semi-precious jewellery, have a few suggestions:

* Have a hashtag: Cliched as it may sound; having a customized hashtag lends a touch of personalization to an otherwise regular wedding. From something that is meaningful to the couple, a play on their initials or a cute personal joke, a hashtag can be anything you want it to be.

Include it in your decor, make it a part of a photo booth, put it in the invites and save the date and get your friends and family to use them for all wedding related pictures and conversations. It’s an easy day to find wedding photos posted by guests in one place on Instagram too.

* Customize the ceremony: Instagram and the likes are flooded with pictures and videos from the wedding and sometimes it becomes hard to distinguish one from another. While ceremonies inherently are ritualistic and follow a pattern, add some fun elements to the celebration to make it your own.

A sweet entry by the bride and groom, a thoughtful toast by the best friends or a fun game between the families make for great memories and great videos.

* Decor drama: Nothing spells social media better than beautiful decor but great decoration doesn’t have to mean expensive flowers flown from another country. Give your venues a personal touch with elements that bring out your relationship and your personality.

Using photos of the couple in an innovative way, having sweet centrepieces with personal stories or including elements like a message tree for people to leave marriage advice and notes are some great ways to use decor to make a statement.

* Include everyone: While couples tend to hire the best photographers for getting the perfect shots to be framed in their living room, real time shots for immediate uploading is left on the reliable shoulders of friends and cousins. Make sure all the moments that matter are captured and posted for posterity, including memories your photographer may not capture, such as a sweet moment between your aunt and uncle.

* Have fun: Whether you’re planning a large scale extravaganza or a private intimate affair, whether you’re getting married in a palace or a beach or at a temple, remember to enjoy yourself and not get too caught up in achieving Pinterest perfection! (IANS)

Facebook has made an initial commitment of $130 million to build a global oversight board that will ensure good governance and accountability across its services and platforms.

The initial funding will cover operational costs such as office space, staff and travel expenses and should allow the board to operate for at least its first two full terms, approximately six years, Brent Harris, Director of Governance and Global Affairs at Facebook, said in a statement.

The board will submit a yearly budget to the trust for approval and disbursement of funds.

Annual reports from the board and trust will help to document the health and effectiveness of the board, including its stewardship of these resources.

Facebook intends to continue funding the board’s operations in the future, and these reports will be used to assess the need for additional, substantive and long-term funding.

Last November, Mark Zuckerberg wrote about his vision for what content governance should look like for Facebook.

Facebook said it has established the independent Oversight Board Trust to ensure the board can safeguard its ability to make independent decisions and recommendations.

“The board will have its own staff, independent from Facebook. To start, we expect this staff to include a director, case managers and dedicated staff members (or contracted services) who can support things such as the board’s communications, legal, human resources and research needs,” said Harris.

In addition, said Facebook, it will continue to work with outside experts to source and review candidates for board membership, including those who’ve been recommended through the public portal, which we opened in September.

“We are eager to see the Oversight Board take shape and start hearing cases next year,” said Facebook. (IANS)
