INSIDER RECOMMENDS: BEST STORIES OF THE WEEK

This past week, the Disney family of websites featured an especially inspiring array of original artwork, flashy merchandise, and fantastic photography throughout the stories they posted. Read on to see some of our favorite examples:

Mousterpieces Mona Lisa
Oh My Disney
Yet again, Oh My Disney delivers a big smile and a clever wink with a series of works of Disney-inspired art that they’ve appropriately deemed Mousterpieces. And those of you who think riffing on the classics is a bit cerebral for weekend browsing, fear not. For you we present this amazing animated gallery, Disney Dance
Moves Are The Best Moves, complete with its own soundtrack!


Dooney and Bourke Mickey and Minnie Mouse Bag
Disney Store
This weekend only, the Disney Store is offering 10% off of their popular line of Dooney & Bourke bags. They have a variety of good looking prints to choose from, each featuring funky text treatments, classic Disney characters, or retro park attractions from decades past.

Halloween on the High Seas with Disney Cruise Line
Babble
It might still be August, but Babble’s bloggers are already thinking fall–and even winter. They’ve got a great breakdown of what to expect of Disney Cruise Line’s “Halloween on the High Seas” and “Very Merrytime Cruises,” which you can look forward to later this year.

Facebook Starts Letting Teens Post Publicly

Like a cautious parent,Facebook is giving teen users new freedom despite risks. For the first time, users under 18 can post publicly. The logic is that other sites don’t restrict kids, teens are getting more web savvy, and young celebrities want a voice. This could let minors publicly share things they’ll regret, so they must manually opt in to public sharing and confirm they understand the risks. Somewhat disingenuously, Facebook frames its blog post about the change as being about adding more protection for teens. It starts off saying that now when people age 13 to 17 sign up, their posts to the News Feed are defaulted to “friends only” instead of “friends of friends (fof)” as they were before. That is important because many people don’t change their default settings, and if you have thousands of friends with thousands of friends, the fof setting would share your posts to more than a million people.

But the real question is what effect are these product enhancements having on the bottom line – which in the case of Instagram is measured in user growth. And the answers seems to be that it’s working. The app just announced that they have grown to over 600 million monthly active users. This is almost 10% of the world population – and 100 million more than the company had 6 months ago when they announced a milestone of 500M monthly actives. As a comparison, it took about 9 months to get from 400M to 500M monthly actives – so their growth is still accelerating, even with such a large user base.
While the growth over the past 6 months was still broad-based, the company noted that they were doing p…
