Facebook prototypes a swipeable hybrid carousel of feed posts & Stories

Feed and Stories unite! Facebook is so eager to preempt the shift to Stories that it might even let us use the same interface of horizontally swipeable cards to sift through News Feed posts. If users won’t scroll down any more, Facebook’s ad business could take a huge hit. But by allowing traditional feed posts and ads to appear amidst Stories in the same carousel you’re more prone to swipe through, it could squeeze more views and dollars out of that content. This would help Facebook graceful...

Invisible Content Syndrome and the Content Promotion Tactics to Cure It

Eyes fixed on his computer monitor, Jack felt perspiration form on his forehead as he waited in anticipation for the flood of visitors to the new campaign he and his team just launched. Anticipation turned to nervousness as he looked around the room and asked, “Who’s promoting this content?” All Jack got in return were blank stares and a bad case of Invisible Content Syndrome.

9 Reasons Instagram Will Overtake Facebook

In 2012, $1 billion seemed like an awful lot to pay for Instagram, given that the photo-sharing network had just 30 million users. But, Facebook was weak on mobile in those pre-IPO days, and a purchase of Instagram allowed an immediate shoring up in that area. Mark Zuckerberg was lauded for his commitment to keeping Instagram independent, and not just Frankensteining the technology into the parent Facebook app. Now, six years later, his quotes are even more interesting: “For years, we’ve focused...

EXPOSED: Fake Facebook Pages Used to Cloak Ad Origins

Recently spotted in the Facebook News Feed was this sponsored link ad from Facebook Page Coupons & Cabernet. Leading to this URL, which I’ll leave here in all its kangaroo-tagged glory: An obvious lead-gen blog post written by a mysterious, yet oh-so-relatable “I” on wikibuy.com/blog. Checking out wikibuy’s blog, it’s full of types of “blogs” you see all over Facebook – promotions that look like third parties singing the praises of a money-saving Internet “hack.” You’ve likely seen other exte...

'Boz', the man behind Facebook News Feed, explains the importance of launching new products with a 'degree of humility' (FB)

When Facebook launched News Feed a decade ago, the reaction from users was to revolt. Before News Feed, Facebook users had to click around on their friends' profile pages, individually, to check out what they were sharing. Now that information was conveniently accessible in one place. The web is now so flooded with news feeds, the idea seems like a no-brainer. Not at all in 2006. The day after launch, users threatened to boycott the service and protesters swarmed the Facebook offices, demanding ...
