Yes, we cheered on the Denver Broncos last year (a lot of good it did us eh?). And this year, our team almost made it to the big game so we could root for them again. But alas, looks like Room 214 will be rooting for social media during Super Bowl XLIX.
McDonald’s is a brand that’s already making waves in the New Year.
Publicis Groupe’s Leo Burnett won the company’s business in August, with the promise of refreshing McDonald’s image. The agency has brought new life to the phrase “I’m Lovin’ It” and is attempting to bring a more community feel to McDonald’s and the food produced by the worldwide corporation.
It’s finally happened. Facebook has finally updated its search feature so that when you close the window, log out of your account, or go to a new page, that hilarious video you’ve been meaning to show your friend is not gone forever.
This week for our Social Media Roundup we will be discussing some exciting news: Facebook at Work. That’s right, the social network is making a supplemental platform to its existing network, allowing workers to share files (like Google Docs), network (like LinkedIn) and communicate (like Slack.)
