A day in the life of the Pixel8 new guy...
My name is Jacob and I’m the fresh blood at Pixel8, I’m fifteen years old and am currently studying my first year of GCSE, oh the joys… anyway I am here on my work experience and second day in I’m starting to learn the ropes, meet new people and find out that the cupboard with the hobnobs in is the community cupboard, meaning I had a nice second lunch of hobnobs, after my first lunch of a bacon double cheeseburger XL from Burger King, which probably wasn’t far off the size of my head!

Pixel8 Work Experience Diary: Day Five
Day FiveIt’s the final day with Pixel8 and the last blog. I’m half-tempted to phone my school demanding they give me next week off so I can stay for an extra week because I don’t really want to leave. I think I’m rather going to miss being the work experience ‘gal’.

Pixel8 Work Experience Diary: Day Three
You probably know the drill by now, but if you don't...Gemma has joined us for work experience this week and has been keeping a daily diary via the blog, so here's the 3rd installment... I breezed into the office nice and early this morning and then it dawned on me that I now only have two more days left until I leave Pixel8 and return to my normal school day life and I don’t relish the idea of it. Today I have been looking at more spreadsheets, finding more contact numbers for the company and also using a spreadsheet for analytics.

Facebook controversy over ‘emotional manipulation’
A current topical story relates to Facebook experimenting with how social media can affect user’s moods. Over the course of one week in January 2012 they manipulated 700,000 user’s feeds; for some they reduced the amount of negative pots that they saw when scrolling through their news feeds and for others they reduced the amount of positive posts user’s would see.

Pixel8 Work Experience Diary: Day Two
Our work experience gal Gemma recounts her second day working at Pixel8 HQ. Here's what she had to say:My work for the day started as soon as I walked into the office this morning. I was given the task to write a couple of blog posts for the Pixel8 blog, and after all my research yesterday and in-depth conversation with my sister on the daily commute, I had ideas already forming. Having written two more blogs and polished them you’ll be able to read them here soon.
