Rate this Entry
Hello Internet Marketing Club News Readers!

I am catching up a big for the IMC News reporting on the latest industry trends and news in online and interactive marketing.

Here is catch up for last week's social media news:

Facebook Groups Now Show Who’s Seen Each Post: “When you visit a group, you can view who’s seen each post. This way you can stay updated on the group’s activity.”

Facebook Events Gets a Better View: Facebook Events gets ”new list and calendar views that make it easier to scan upcoming birthdays, invites and suggested events. Scroll through these events and respond to invites without leaving the page. Suggested events are recommended to you based on your friends, pages you like, places you’ve checked in and the apps you use on Facebook.”

Facebook App Center Begins to Roll Out Globally: After launching the App Center in the United States about one month ago, the App Center is “now available to 100% of users in the United States, Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom” and more countries will be added in the coming weeks. There’s a new localization tool—a Localize tab on the App Dashboard—where you can provide translations of your app’s information.

Facebook Pages Can Now Add Location to Their Posts: Facebook page admins can now tag their posts and photos with location.

Twitter Overhauls mobile.twitter.com From the Ground Up: The updated mobile.twitter.com is “a lighter-weight, faster client that looks and feels like twitter.com and our mobile apps.”

Twitter Search Gets Simpler: Twitter introduces search autocomplete and “People you follow” search results to twitter.com.
