New Facebook Page Design & Layout for 2016 (with dimensions)

New Facebook Page Design & Layout for 2016 (with dimensions)

As of this morning I’ve started seeing a new Facebook Page layout. This is currently being rolled out in stages around the world, or Facebook are testing it with a smaller audience to see whether the new design is more effective than the current.

Facebook Ads Manager App for Mobile

Stuff.co.nz’s America’s Cup Headline and the Following Onslaught

If you were following Twitter shortly after Emirate Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup loss, you may have noticed a fair bit of conversation surrounding Stuff.co.nz’s headline that boldly declared “CHOKE ON THIS NZ”. There was a quick backlash on Twitter, with Tweets such as the following from @karenhurley: Wow @NZStuff, whose side are you on?! #harsh pic.twitter.com/n27o0sOTLA — Tally (@karenhurley) September 25, 2013 — Tally (@karenhurley) September 25, 2013...
New Facebook Promotion Guidelines: Go Nuts!

New Facebook Promotion Guidelines: Go Nuts!

Facebook have announced changes to their terms and conditions in relation to how promotions can be run. These changes make it far easier to run a Facebook promotion so we’ll no doubt start seeing them more and more! At time of writing this has been posted on the official Facebook Studio Page but oddly not the Facebook Marketing Page.   Then again, to most people, this news won’t change...
