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, YouTube, and others that may impact the way you use social media networks for your business.

It’s been a light week, but for the period of January 9 – 15, here’s a breakdown of news from last week on social:


Insights and Ads are Launching on Stories

In the coming weeks, analytics including reach, impressions, replies, and exits will be available for Stories.

Unsurprisingly, full screen ads for Stories are concurrently being tested with select marketers. 


Super Chat in Live Streams

YouTube live stream followers can now gain higher visibility for their chat comments by paying for a Super Chat, essentially YouTube’s equivalent to Twitch donations.


Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter 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.
