Facebook Updates News Feed (Again)

NCE Social Media

Facebook has updated its News Feed algorithm again. Almost one third of people use Facebook to get their news. Personally, I don’t like the News Feed default and prefer the All Friends feed. What does this mean for you?

Don't give them a false sense of the situation by sharing only good news. You'll gain their respect when they hear the bad news directly from you. Bad News Leadership

Attention Nonprofits! The New LinkedIn News Feed Design Has Arrived

Nonprofit Tech for Good

At long last, the new LinkedIn News Feed is here! For years I have been completely baffled by LinkedIn’s partnership with Twitter to allow a mass automation of tweets to be published the LinkedIn News Feed.
