I did not want to talk about it. But I could not avoid it either. Horrible things have happened this week. I thought about it a lot, and the only obvious thing I wanted to share is love. Maybe this way we can make this world a better place. And it can start with a simple hug. So why don’t you hug someone before reading this?

Facebook is the leading social media platform out there, and believe me, it will not let anyone take its place. It’s like the company announces something new every week, keeping the competition far behind, or sometimes simply copying their best features.

This week Facebook announced that 360-video is now working on all platforms (Android, iOS and web – if you use Google Chrome) and that it is even available for video ads now. Talking about ads, there is a new objective: lead ads, and they are quite awesome. Finally, Facebook took a hit on Snapchat, by rolling out self-destructive messages for its Messenger app. Oh, and Facebook finally launched its breaking news app too. Busy week you say?
