The Social Share is an email newsletter (and a blog post – because we like it so much) for anyone short on time. It’s similar in style to the very popular theSkimm. No one wants to be the deer in headlights when someone says “did you see the latest update to Facebook?”
Our concept is simple. We read and share the most important stuff once a week or if it’s a slow week, once every two weeks or so.
Let us know if you like it, don’t like it, or have suggestions for additions!

BIRDS DON’T LIKE SPAM
Twitter is upping it’s anti-spam game. It added tools to let you block multiple people at once. You can share lists of accounts you block and make them available to others.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR BRANDS
If your business gets a lot of spam on Twitter, this is a win! You don’t have to worry about harassment and ghost accounts taking up your Twitter time. Have better, more meaningful conversations with your Twitter community.
On the flip side, if you unknowingly (or knowingly) spam people, you might get the boot. Make sure you give people good content and not hijack their feed. Take a look at this handy Twitter Strategy Worksheet to make sure you’re doin’ it right.
TREAT YO’ SELF
Pinterest is adding Buyable Pins where peeps can buy items within Pinterest. Shopaholics everywhere will celebrate Treat Yo’ Self Day much more often.
Relax, Pinterest won’t take a cut from your sales, and you still get to handle shipping and customer service the way you always have. For now, Pinterest is only working with specific businesses. If you use Shopify or Demandware, you’re in luck! If not, get on their wait list.
Pinterest also introduced cinematic ads. It’s pretty sweet. When you scroll through pins, cinematic ads start moving – drawing your attention to the ad. Take a look.
WHAT TO SAY WHEN YOU’RE IN A MATHLETE COMPETITION…
The limit does not exist. Twitter is getting rid of character limits in direct messages! So, when you answer a customer’s question, you won’t have to type in a bunch of different text bubbles. But please… don’t start sending novels to your followers.
