Social Media Notes

Here’s this week’s round-up of social media (& sometimes tech) news. Come back weekly for what I hope to be a fun & informative blog post on social stories that caught my eye throughout the week! 

  • The 3rd Annual Edmonton International Cat Festival is THIS WEEK! It takes place Saturday, May 28, and is the only event of its kind in Canada, donating 100% of proceeds to local cat rescues (this year donations will support the Edmonton Humane Society, Little Cats Lost, and Zoe’s Animal Rescue!) Pre-purr-chase your tickets here! (At the door, it’s $20 per person – kids 12 and under are free).
  • Apparently Snapchat is developing an algorithm (like Facebook’s news feed), a way to make the platform more attractive for brands.
  • Here are 44 stats about Twitter including 83% of the world’s leaders on Twitter, 79% of accounts are actually outside the U.S., 92% of companies tweet more than once a day, the ‘tears of joy’ emoji is the most tweeted emoji, with 14.5 billion tweets.
