Social links I thought were interesting

Hi all, I am trying to write a bit more and make it a habit. I thought I’d start easy with something I already do — a list of social links I found interesting over the last week with a little commentary of my own.

So here goes, some of these are a bit older because I was away for two weeks so do forgive me. Without further ado:

  • YouTube is seeing a slowdown, of sorts as companies see better content discovery on Facebook and Snapchat > http://on.wsj.com/2agEzYf > But with any slowdown, comes opportunity. YouTube is still the second biggest search engine after it’s parent, Google.
  • Europe, it’s the topic of 2016. Everyone loves a bit of Europe. Here are some big trends on social content across Europe > http://bit.ly/2aJNzDH > Mobile video, exclusive first looks, branded series and influencer marketing are the key take outs, it’s like 2009 all over again, ahh 2009 glory days.
  • Facebook Live is what Facebook want us all to use but it’s constantly changing, here are some new features > http://bit.ly/2awrXxU
  • Influencers, biggest racket in social going right now, Twitter have signed up 17 top food influencers to post exclusive content on Twitter (instead of Instagram, the true home of #foodporn) https://twitter.com/TwitterAds/status/756173568329650176
  • On Twitter, it has had a less than good set of financials, can Google just buy it already and make it a non-profit and be done with it please? > http://cnb.cx/2atONVK
  • On Twitter again, they continue to invest in sports highlights, this time with Sky Sports — it will show exclusive PL highlights in real time ish: http://bit.ly/2alSdu4
  • FIFA 17 announced the new cover on Snapchat: http://bit.ly/2awsHD8 > The Snapchat hype is real, I believe.
  • Nice House of Cards reactive content, taking CNN’s video and copying it but with a House of Cards slant: https://twitter.com/HouseofCards/status/758059209053405184

Oh and finally, is it too soon? Some excellent cosplay here on Game of Thrones at comic-con (I think?). See you same time, same place, next week.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
