Social media roundup: April 2012

Similar to the weather in much of the UK, there’s been a veritable downpour in the world of social media news recently. Except in Scotland, where it’s been overcast and breezy. I don’t know what that means in relation to social media, but here we go anyways:

Social media roundup: March & Easter

This Easter social media roundup is eggactly what you need to catch up on the social media news and tips from the last month-and-a-bit. See what I did there? I used the word egg. Easter. Egg.

Actually quite a lot has happened over March and the Easter period so prepare to be metaphorically headbutted in the face by a stream of pure information:

Facebook’s “objectives” targeting: what it means for us

Facebook ads downfall: more ads and shorter ads

Facebook is going to shorten their ads so they can fit more in. Either this will give users a greater choice of ads and drive up clicks, revenue and general goodness for all (users, advertisers and Facebook) or the current good advertisers will have their ads lost in a blanket of poor ads and users will ignore the wall of ads completely.

Twitter and Facebook: pub chatter or controlled press?

The Leveson inquiry into press standards couldn’t be credible if it didn’t begin to look into the implications of social networks upon the press and privacy landscape.

However Leveson has also admitted that he sees Facebook and Twitter as being distinctly different, “pub chatter” between friends. But is this really the case? And does leaving these networks out of any regulation undermine the whole process?
