Last Week on Social - July3

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 June 27 – July 3, here’s a breakdown of news from last week on social:


Update to News Feed

I’ll bet you didn’t hear this week about the Facebook News Feed algorithm change, right?!?! Well, News Feed has been changed to show more posts from friends and family members, which likely means fewer posts from businesses, brands, and publishers.


Shopping Bags

Shopping bags is a new tool on Pinterest to enable users to collect a number of buyable pins in one place, for a single, unified purchasing experience.

Buyable Pins on the Web

Buyable pins were introduced some time ago on mobile devices, and now they’re coming to the web.



Over the next few weeks, Twitter is rolling out Stickers to enhance users’ pictures.


Available now, Dashboard is a basic, native social media management tool for your Twitter account. It enables users to schedule tweets, monitor conversation, and provides tweet ideas and recommendations.


Instagram, LinkedIn, Vine, and YouTube 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.
