Pijon Sends Care Packages To Your College-Age Kids To Keep Them “Happy And Healthy”

Pijon
From the team behind SpaceSplitterPijon is a subscription service for college care packages. The service touts itself as delivering the perfect packages for students. It’s also an effortless way for parents to stay connected with their kids during the school year.
“About 4 months ago we made the decision to re-envision our future around the mission of keeping college students happy and healthy while enabling families to stay connected,” co-founder and CEO Rob Caucci told me. “We believed there was an opportunity to provide care givers with a direct sales channel that would allow them to send their long-distance dependents the non-perishable grocery products and ‘essentials’ they consume each month,” he continued.
Pijon delivers a package of five or six products every month, including snacks, beauty products and accessories. It will cost parents between $25 and $29 a month depending on the length of their subscriptions.
When asked about competitors such as Co-Ed Supply, Caucci talked about Pijon’s delivery network. “We’ve made it a point to nail down exclusive distribution partnerships with on-campus culinary service providers, off-campus housing companies, and even directly with college administrations,” he said. “It gives us exclusive access to an aggregate network of 80,000+ students,” he continued.
Finally, Pijon gives 5 percent of all profits to Project Night Night, a charity that delivers care packages to homeless children. The New York-based company is already generating revenue and will certainly attract more customers as we get closer to a new school year.
Students will certainly enjoy receiving a package of… stuff every month. But Pijon should really shine among parents. Pay $29 a month and forget about your kid. Easy, no?

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 considering there are 1.15 billion people on Facebook already, and its growth has…

Instagram surges past 700M users, fueled by algorithmic feed

Instagram has gone through a whirlwind of changes the past few months. Between bookmarks, likable comments, live video, tags, zoom, drafts, Stories and of course the controversial algorithmic feed – no one can argue that the Facebook-owned photo sharing app hasn’t been innovating at a rapid pace. 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…
