Social Media Round Up September 2015

Social Media Round Up - September 2015

The shift in the weather has definitely been noted!  This was the Sunrise this morning…

Sunrise 29th September 2015 STOMP

I am so thankful for the “Save” button link in Facebook.  I have used it very often since it come in place and have referred to saved links regularly ever since.


The two big mentions this month for Facebook surely have to be the hoax stories for the “Dislike” button and the fact that Facebook are going to start charging £5.99 for their services.  These simply are not true!  The dislike was more misreported and instead he said:

“Mark Zuckerberg stated in his recent public Q&A session, “We didn’t want to just build a Dislike button because we don’t want to turn Facebook into a forum where people are voting up or down on people’s posts. That doesn’t seem like the kind of community we want to create.” (Taken from Mari Smith).

Full details of the “sorry” or “empathy” button can be found at this link.

Also Facebook are rolling out a slicker looking Notes update.  You can customize each note individually with its own relevant image, format text, add quotes or bullet points too.  It is certainly a great update and should be rolled out in the coming months to us in Ireland.  Check out your notes here:

Finally about Facebook is the “I’m Away from my Facebook Page right now” feature.  This was rolled out the end of August so was up and running the same day I submitted my last round up.  You can find the article here.
