Welcome to this week’s top social media stories: The rise (and fall) of Vero, some good news for publishers, the end of LittleThings and Facebook jobs roll out to 40 more countries.
Unless you were hiding under a rock, you probably have read a lot about Vero this week. The “true social” app was all over the news. At first for breaking records of app downloads, and then for the polemic behind its CEO, which in turn, started the growing #DeleteVero movement.
On the other side of the social media spectrum, Facebook and the ongoing subject of its recent algorithm change. There was some good news this week: the company has pulled the plug on its idea to separate friends and families from businesses and publishers into two different feeds. However, the algorithm will continue to disadvantage branded content in the News Feed.
