The Mobile Media Lab focuses on Instagram. In fact, its founders were some of Instagram's earliest adopters: they started the NYC Instagram Meetup Group in March 2011 and were placed on Instagram's Suggested User List shortly thereafter. They turned their passion into The Mobile Media Lab in March of 2012 in order to shape the way brands interact with influencers and their audiences on Instagram. By leveraging personal relationships with hundreds of Instagrammers around the world, their unique approach connects clients with the right Instagrammers for their campaigns. They are the first creative agency to focus on Instagram and have been shaping the way brands advertise with influencers and their audiences on Instagram for nearly 4 years. "Instagram is definitely the hottest influencer platform going today", said Jim Louderback, Managing Partner at The Louderback Group and a Member of the Company's Board of Advisors.   

In other web application and social media developments and happenings:  Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) is tweaking its timeline. The social media site will let people turn on a setting that lets popular tweets related to people you follow show up first in your timeline, followed by the real-time feed most people on Twitter are used to. The new option works similarly to Facebook's (NASDAQ: FB) News Feed in that it uses an algorithm to serve up posts likely to be of interest to you. Facebook has also been making changes to its algorithm recently to try to increase visibility for the posts users want to see most. The new Twitter timeline option is a significant change for the microblogging service, although its existing "while you were away" feature also highlights tweets from the recent past.  Read the full article on CBSNews.com
