From Marketing Land:

  • Now You Can Edit Posts From Facebook’s Pages Manager App Facebook updated its Pages Manager mobile app today, most notably giving Page administrators the ability to edit posts from within the app. That’s a handy feature for those typos discovered while you are on the go. The update, available now for iOS and Android devices, also has a new look, and according to Facebook’s blog […]
  • Google Domains: A New $12 Domain Registration Service Google Is Testing Google is dipping its toes into the domain registrar business. The company today announced a beta service called Google Domains that looks very much like the beginnings of a full-fledged domain registrar business. The service is invite-only at the moment, and interested parties can request an invite via the link above. Just pretend to search […]
  • Google Glass Heads Overseas As Explorer Program Launches In The UK On the eve of its Google I/O conference, Google has announced that its Glass Explorer program is expanding to the United Kingdom. The Explorer Program is Google’s current beta testing system where interested parties that purchase Glass are given direct support from Google and asked to provide feedback as the device develops. Although the program […]
  • Facebook Adjusts News Feed Algorithm To Serve People More Relevant Video Facebook announced today a News Feed algorithm change that is intended to show more relevant video to users. Now instead of considering likes, comments and shares to rank a video’s popularity, Facebook will also take into account whether and how long a video is viewed. “People who tend to watch more video in News Feed […]
  • Survey: 62% Of Consumers Say Social Media Doesn’t At All Influence Their Purchasing Decisions It shouldn’t come as a surprise to savvy social media marketers, but consumers really aren’t interested in what you are selling.

  • 8 Reasons To Start Using Tag Management, If You Haven’t Already At this point in the history of digital marketing, I think it’s safe to say that — for better or worse — tags are required table stakes of digital measurement. Your analytics solution, your search marketing platforms, your UX tools, your testing platform, your voice of customer solution, your bidding platforms, your retargeting strategies… most, […]
  • What To Expect This Week At Google I/O Google is “gearing up” for its annual developer conference this week, Google I/O. On Wednesday, there will be a two-hour keynote to be delivered or emceed by Android and Chrome SVP Sundar Pichai. We’ll be there. Based on an array of rumors, we expect to see and hear a number of hardware and software announcements. […]
  • One Of 2014’s Hottest Mobile Retail Opportunities: User Reviews Each year, the retail shopping season seems to catch us off guard, beginning sooner than we expect. Retailers begin to see a lift in sales during the back-to-school season, which continues through post-holiday sales at the end of the year. June is the perfect time for digital marketers to examine last year’s trends and prepare […]
  • Letter Hints At Many New EU Investigations Against Google The New York Times is reporting that a letter from European Competition chief Joaquín Almunia seeks to rally support for the existing Google antitrust settlement, quite strangely, by promising future investigations against the company. Essentially he seems to be saying: don’t worry if you don’t think this deal is tough enough, because there are more […]

  • Improved Facebook Right Hand Ads Will Roll Out Next Week, Limited Availability Will Raise CPCs A few months ago, Facebook promised a revamped, larger ad size for those Right-Hand Column ads. Today, they’ve announced a launch date of “early next week” along with a warning of scarcity. Seeing that the ads take up more real estate on the screen, there will obviously be less space for ads. This means that […]
