Last Week on Social - August14

Thanks again 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 August 8 – 14, here’s a breakdown of news from last week on social: 


Update to Ad Blocking

New features are being added to give users more options to block irrelevant or disruptive ads by adjusting personal interests.

Tweaks to News Feed

Another week, another tweak to News Feed… let’s move along. 


CPM Bidding

Pinterest has updated how advertisers buy ads by adding CPM bidding through Ads Manager.


Promoted Stickers

“Brands can design four or eight stickers… for users to add to their own photos. Photos with a brand’s stickers are shared with all of a user’s followers… [and] act as a visual hashtag, meaning that photos with your brand’s sticker will be connected and discoverable to anyone who taps your brand’s sticker”.


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.
