Hello, Geeks! 👋
I’m still picking my jaw up from off the floor after reading Facebook’s rebuttal of Netflix’s ‘The Social Dilemma’ documentary.
A source pointed out the 2-page PDF
to me after noticing it had seemingly gone unnoticed by most people, even though it had been accessible online for a few days prior. Suffice to say, once I tweeted about it, a few people (1,200 quote tweets!) shared
their opinion about Facebook’s fairly weak arguments addressing some of the film’s core themes.
Quick question for regular readers of this Geekout Newsletter…
I always intended for Geekout to be a comprehensive and jam-packed weekly newsletter, giving social media managers a one-stop resource for ALL the week’s news, new tools and features, and longer reads…
Gmail and other email apps truncate the newsletter if it exceeds a certain length, leading to you (the reader) having to tap a link to view the rest of the email in full, which often messes with the layout and formatting.
- Is this a problem for you?
- Would you prefer I cut some of the content in this newsletter to reduce its length, thus preventing this from happening?
Reply to this email (or drop me a Twitter DM
) and let me know your thoughts?
Right… Let’s jump into what went down in the world of social media this week.,,
PS. My Geekout podcast will be back soon for a third season!
In the past, we’ve interviewed senior staff from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Pinterest, plus top tech journalists and more
. The new season will bring much more of that to your ears.
BUT I need your help ❤️🙏
We need a new sponsor.
- Would your employer have an interest?
- Know someone that might?
If so, drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org!
