Facebook Google and Yahoo News
This week was packed with news.
Let’s jump in…
Two new developments here.
Not as “New” but Facebook will be scaling back on the number of “ad products.” Some are sort of redundant. My guess is Facebook wants to make things a little easier for smaller advertisers.
It’s funny how they want to win over the “big brands” but it’s the little guys like us who will keep the lights on and the servers running in the long-run.
What else is new with Facebook?
Hashtags started as a twitter thing as a way to follow current information.
And I’m sure it will STILL be a “Twitter Thing.” This is Facebook’s way of getting in the “real-time conversation” game.
Introducing a G+ dashboard for businesses with an “owner-verified” G+ page.
The idea is to manage “all things Google” from this dashboard.
G+ is still struggling with engagement so perhaps this is a step in the right direction.
Yahoo is trying to get back “old Yahoo Mail users.”
Those with accounts who have not logged in – in the last year are considered in-active.
I received an email from Yahoo (to my Gmail account) that said… “We want you back!”
It will be interesting to see how well Yahoo uses email marketing to get more folks using their email service!
Enjoy your weekend!
