Dec. 19, 2016 – Facebook releases helpful guide on how to take care of your business page. It includes topics such as managing visitor posts, comments, and reviews on your page, as well as how report bad activity, among others. A truly handy guide for the basics on moderating. The timing of this release makes me LOL a bit since nothing about the holiday season screams moderation…

It is also rumoured that they’re testing coloured backgrounds for status updates. This could be an interesting way to raise awareness of your brand.

Dec, 14, 2016 – Twitter joins the live streaming party letting easily everyone experience workshops, events, concerts, new cities, adventures…really just any experience from your point of view with just the click of a button directly from the app.

The benefit to going live with Twitter I’d say, is the exposure and/or possible reach. Given the option? Both platforms are prioritizing live video content so do both for maximum exposure, although, you might require 2 mobile devices.
