Facebook changes its News Feed

Facebook is changing the design of its News Feed to look more like that of its mobile and tablet app. This is meant to make the page sleeker and easier to use. It will also make advertising more prominent. I haven’t noticed this roll out as yet. I think it’s another instance when they slowly release it across the globe so one to watch out for.

Instagram has hit 100 million users

Despite the changes to its terms of service late last year, Instagram has hit 100 million members, just 2 and a half years after its launch in 2010.

Google+ has changed its look

Google+ is updating profiles to include a tab for local reviews and bigger cover photos. As a result, we will need to review any of our profiles to develop new sized profile pictures.

WordPress releases business accounts

This is a paid service ($299 per month) which includes live support, unlimited profile themes, unlimited storage, more advanced design tools and a custom web address. This may be worth considering for any new blogs we set up.

LinkedIn has reached 1 billion endorsements

Apparently, LinkedIn has seen recommendations double since the launch of endorsements. Also members are adding further skills to their profiles as a result – potentially making them more useful for recruiters.
