There are so many changes and updates in the social media world, its hard to keep track of them all if you are busy with the day to day running of your business!

I’ve put together the most important updates that took place in September to keep you ahead of the curve in social media marketing for your business:

  • New Tools to Promote Facebook Events:  Facebook has added new features that help Pages promote their events and see how they’re performing. Pages will be able to create ads for desktop and mobile News Feed to boost awareness of events and drive responses. Previously, these were only shown in the right-hand column on desktop. This is how the new event ad will look on the mobile New Feed. Pretty cool and useful!

  • Facebook Updates News Feed: Facebook now shows more timely stories from friends and pages. With this new change, when a friend or page you are connected to posts about something that is currently a hot topic of conversation on Facebook, that post is more likely to appear higher up in news feed, so you can see it sooner:

  • Google Introduces Free Voice Calls From Hangouts: You can make free voice calls from Hangouts on Android, iOS and the web. It’s free to call other Hangouts users, it’s free to call numbers in the U.S. and Canada, and you can call internationally for “low rates”.  Skype…WATCH OUT!


  • Vine Introduces New Camera & Features: This new camera release gives you creative freedom to edit your videos,  import existing videos on your phone and turn them into Vines – all within the app!


  • SlideShare Introduces Animated GIF Feature: Make your slides a little more lively with ”GifDeck”, this new tool converts your SlideShare into an animated GIF, and you can embed the GIF in an email, blog post or post it to Twitter.  Nice!

That’s it for now.  I hope this helps you keep up to date and makes you more productive in your social media marketing for your business! Please feel free to share!
