Last Week on Social - May22

Thanks for checking out Last Week on Social, the blog series dedicated to providing a simple way to stay on top of the latest news and announcements from each of the major social media networks.

Every week, we round-up the latest updates from Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, Vine, YouTube, and others that may impact the way you use social media networks for your business.

For the period of May 16 – 22, here’s a breakdown of news from last week on social:


Security Breach

A security breach from 2012 that resulted in the unauthorized access of numerous user passwords has reared its head. Earlier in the week, LinkedIn became aware of roughly 100 million email and password combinations being accessed during the breach initially experienced in 2012. LinkedIn is working to invalidate passwords for all affected accounts.


VR App

Supporting the mobile VR products announced at Google I/O – Jump, Expeditions, and Daydream – a YouTube VR app will be launched later this year to, “… provide an easier, more immersive way to find and experience virtual reality content on YouTube.”


Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Vine all had quiet news weeks with no announcements worth reporting.

As always, if we’ve missed something, please feel free to bring it to our attention in the comments.
