Here’s the social media news that caught our eye for the week ending on May 3, 2013!
This may very well be a case of the Government is trying to free up businesses and enterprise by reducing legislation – but we also don’t want to underestimate the Internet’s ability to freak out… something to watch as it progresses to Parliament and the House of Lords.
Another trend that has snuck by many watching the social and digital space.
“Retwact tries to contain the damage (and)shame that comes along with spreading information that later turns out to be untrue…”
So — grain of sale time.
The switch to mobile makes sense. The 10 million “lost” from Facebook user numbers… is an awkward statement. Consider that there’s an average of 3 million people who die each year, another 3 million who emigrate from the US (who could still be on Facebook, just not using it IN the US), not to mention Facebook cracking down on users who are underage, fake and spam accounts — and are we talking about a certain amount of activity here? It’s hard to tell since Nielsen can’t confirm these “lost” people actually went anywhere — if they defected to other networks or… um… just died.
Point being — take any decline under 20 million with a grain of slat when we’re talking about a user base of over a billion…
Now we might not always recommend a case of Bud Light, but as a case study, it’s worth a look…
