The Social Network has been getting rave reviews all around the world (if you want to read a massive, intellectual but quite excellent summary, check out Generation Why? by Zadie Smith). Our crack team of movie experts can confirm that it is indeed a tour de force, a triumph, a gripping social media-related romp—and, after heading along to Val Morgan's 3D ad showcase last week, we can also confirm that the 3D ads shown before the movie were pretty damn good too. We've got a couple of double passes to give away to this rather engrossing tale of mystery, intrigue, skullduggery, powerful nerds and the modern human condition, so put up your most banal Facebook status update on the comment wall and to the most banal will go the spoils.

But in the past few years, the definition of the role has expanded to YouTubers, Instagrammers, bloggers and vloggers, and brands have been jumping on the bandwagon to be mentioned in newsfeeds. However, with the online space comes a new set of challenges from selecting an influencer to measuring results. We chat to Fuse content and brand experience director Holly Lindsey about choosing the right influencer for the brand, understanding the grey areas and generating organic engagement.
