Social Media Notes

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

There’s a ton of Facebook updates this week:

  • I mentioned this Facebook / Yelp competitor last week but it looks like since then – Yelp shares have fallen. “With 1.4 billion users and 40 million small business pages, the social network will be a force to contend with.”

And for non-Facebook social media news:

  • This is crazy – ‘Systemic Change Needed After Faulty New York Times’ Article.’ Basically the NYT admitting they need to use less anonymous sources, and also be better at fact-checking. Their reporters and editors all let slide a source statement saying San Bernandino shooters had posted publicly on social media about their jihadist support – when in fact they did not. But no one had thought to try and google or ask the source for evidence showing those public social media posts.
