Social media is constantly changing. Each network has its own strategy and features, and it can be hard to keep up with the latest news. Never fear! We’ve got your monthly update, all in one place, so you can be prepared for what’s next in social media!
Here’s what you need to know about what’s next in social media from March 2014:
Starting the week of March 10, Facebook began rolling out a “streamlined” look for Business Pages on desktop. The new look will be easier for people to find information they really want as well as help Page admins access tools faster. The new redesign features an updated timeline layout, a new “This Week” feature that provides a snapshot of your Page’s activities for the week and easier ability to benchmark with Pages to Watch. Page admins have already reported seeing the option to switch or join the waitlist.
Pinterest’s New Gifts Feed
Good news for those wedding and event professionals who provide goods: Pinterest has announced that it’s introducing a new feed specifically for Product Pins, meaning that they’re tied directly to the retailer and you’re able to purchase them directly. While much of Pinterest is used purely for inspiration, this feed will only show items which can actually be bought (and are up-to-date). This feed will also include a price filter, making it function more like a retail site than a social network.
