Google changes its rules for charities
Google has announced that charities who don’t get enough click-throughs on their AdWords campaigns could have their accounts closed.
Currently, charities can apply to receive a free monthly budget of up to $10,000 to spend on AdWords. However, new rules mean that if they fail to achieve a 5% Click Through Rate (CTR) for two consecutive months, the account could be deactivated.
If this affects you, read an article about it here, or give us a call as we can help to prevent this from happening.
Other than being a solid (and free) desktop mp3 player, Winamp was highly customizable with 'skins' and various plugins such as awesome full screen visualisations.
There have been various clones over the years, such as xmms on Linux. Now there's this HTML+JS version which replicates the look, feel and behaviour of the original application perfectly (minus plugins).
Facebook Community Summit 2018
Facebook held its first ever European community summit in London earlier this month. Here’s what they had to say:
Facebook Groups remain important, with more admin tools becoming available, the ability to do ‘Group Announcements’, personalisation of the group (colours etc), and group rules will finally have their own section.
They’re dedicated to monitoring the content on their network. After a huge amount of criticism in 2017 for the proliferation of fake news, they’re increasing their content team to 20,000 (worldwide) and doubling the number of engineers creating moderation tools.
The opening was live streamed if you would like to watch it here:
Snapchat upsets its users BIG TIME
More than 800,000 have signed a petition to ask Snapchat to reverse the latest update. The update was designed to separate ‘media content’ from ‘friends’ and has left users confused about where anything is and very upset.
But most shocking for the network is Kylie Jenner, a major influencer of the network’s users, tweeting on 21st February saying “sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me… ugh this is so sad”. The company lost 6% in stock, equating to a massive 1.3bn loss for the company, overnight - ouch!
