Amy Poehler is an entertainment giant who’s currently hosting Making It. From SNL to her relationship history, here’s everything about Amy.

From starring in classic sitcoms to hosting the reality crafting competition Making It, Amy Poehler is one of the busiest and most successful women in the entertainment industry. Although she began her career as a comedian, Amy has recently branched out into new terrain, the most unexpected of which is the Great British Baking Show-inspired Making It. From her early days at SNL to her innovative use of social media, here’s everything there is to know about Amy.

Amy was born in Newton, Massachusetts, on September 16, 1971. This means that Amy is a Virgo and will be turning 50 this fall. Amy’s parents Eileen and William Poehler were both schoolteachers. Amy’s mother Eileen was a feminist during the 1970s. Amy credits her mom for her rebellious nature. Amy graduated from high school in 1989 and went on to study media and communications at Boston College. While attending college, Amy joined her first improv comedy troupe. Amy’s experience in the comedy troupe inspired her to pursue comedy as her career after her graduation in 1993. Amy moved to Chicago to continue learning about improv comedy. While in Chicago, Amy joined comedy groups like Second City and became friends with other prominent comedians like the 30 Rock star, Tina Fey.

Amy’s career in comedy launched when she starred on Saturday Night Live in 2001. Amy was the second cast member and the first woman to be promoted from featured player to a full cast member in her debut season of the classic series. Amy is best known for her portrayal of Hillary Clinton and her time hosting Weekend Update. During her time at SNL, Amy was in a relationship with Arrested Development actor Will Arnett. The couple met at one of Amy’s comedy shows in 1996 but didn’t start dating until 2000. Amy and Will got married in August 2003. Amy and Will collaborated on projects such as Blades of Glory and Horton Hears a Who. Amy and Will also worked together while parenting their two sons, 12-year-old Archie and 10-year-old Abel. Amy and the Bojack Horseman actor announced their separation in 2012 and were divorce by April 2014.

Since the end of Parks and Recreation, Amy has continued to explore directing. Amy has two feature films, Wine Country and Moxie, and is currently directing a documentary about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

Amy produces and co-hosts Making It with former Parks and Recreation co-star, Nick Offerman. Amy’s comprehensive career spans not only entertainment but also social media. Although Amy doesn’t have her own Instagram, she is present on the photo-sharing app. In 2008, Amy and former SNL talent executive Meredith Walker co-founded Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls. This organization has the goal of curating an online space to unite and empower women. On Instagram, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls has 1 million followers and over 2,800 posts dedicated to women’s empowerment.

From mastering improv to redefining Instagram, Amy is a modern Renaissance woman. Before reaching her 50th birthday, Amy has created iconic comedy television, started a family, and empowered a generation of young women. Suffice to say, Amy is Making It.

Social networking websites launch features to encourage users to get boosters

Facebook Instagram and TikTok are launching new features to encourage people to get their coronavirus booster jabs.

From Friday, users will be able to update their profiles with frames or stickers to show that they have had their top-up jab or aim to when they become eligible.

It follows on from people previously being able to show they have had their first and second jabs on certain social networking websites and apps.

TikTok also held a “grab a jab” event in London earlier this year.

I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones

More than 16 million booster vaccines have now been given across the UK.

People who are aged 40 and above and received their second dose of their vaccine at least six months ago are currently eligible to have their booster.

A new campaign advert is also being launched on Friday, which shows how Covid-19 can build up in enclosed spaces and how to prevent that from happening.

Vaccines minister Maggie Throup said:  “Getting your booster is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself and your family this winter.

“It is fantastic to see some of the biggest household names further back the phenomenal vaccine rollout, allowing their users to proudly display that they have played their part in helping us build a wall of defence across the country.

“I urge everyone who is eligible – don’t delay, get your vaccine or top-up jab today to protect yourself and your loved ones.”

How many hashtags should you use to get the most ‘Likes’ on Instagram?

Hashtags are a key feature of Instagram posts. In fact, they have become an essential means of ensuring more ‘Likes’ on social media – so long as you choose them wisely.

But how many hashtags should you use to maximise your popularity on the social network? The answer might surprise you.

It’s a question that many Instagram users ask themselves: what’s the right number of hashtags to add to a post? To find out, the Later platform analysed 18 million Instagram posts, excluding videos, Reels and Stories.

Interestingly, Later’s results differ from Instagram’s own recommendations. According to Later’s analysis, using more hashtags helps get better results in terms of “reach”, or the percentage of users exposed to the post. By using 20 hashtags, Later observed an optimal average reach rate of just under 36%. Using 30 hashtags gets the next-best reach rate. With five hashtags, reach hits just under 24%.

And while a post’s reach is important, engagement is even more so. From “Likes” and comments to shares and follows – on average, 30 hashtags appears to result in better engagement rates: “When it comes to average engagement rate, using 30 Instagram hashtags per feed post results in the most likes and comments,” says Later’s research.

Yet, at the end of September 2021, Instagram advised its creators to use between three and five hashtags for their posts, while warning them against using too many. The social network advised that using 10 to 20 hashtags per post “will not help you get additional distribution”.

For Later, there could be other reasons behind Instagram’s recommendations: “As Instagram continues to expand their discoverability and SEO tools, it makes sense that they want users to experiment with fewer, more relevant hashtags – this could help them accurately categorise and recommend your posts in suggested content streams, like the Instagram Reels feed or the updated hashtag search tabs,” the website explains. – AFP Relaxnews
