Here’s our daily recap of what happened in online marketing today, as reported on Marketing Land and other places across the web.

  • Twitter Updates Its Mobile Site For Consistency Across Platforms

    Twitter users with older mobile browsers and feature phones will have an experience that’s more like what smartphone and users are familiar with. The company has overhauled with a new look and feel that’s in line with other Twitter experiences — no matter if the user is on a small, 240×240 screen or [...]

  • Read Receipts Added To Facebook Groups

    Facebook Groups have slowly been revived as a useful tool, especially for schools. Both groups for schools and group attachments were launched earlier this year.

While some noticeable changes will be prevalent, many of the new initiatives will be rolling out slowly even with an upgrade. The apps feature more than just the current logo, they will enhance the content and experiences [...]

  • Yelp Opens First International Sales Office In London
