“We’re seeing a lot more transparency from social platforms but now we’re also seeing where those impressions and clicks are coming from.”

Memewatch: The Royal Wedding
Just a couple of days after the royal wedding, we’re still not over the royal memes. There are a LOT to choose from. *inhales deeply* Iced tea attire, Megan’s “I did it” face, lookalikesex-girlfriends, more attireMichael Curry, Tom Hardy, and even more attire! We think we got most of them. Phew! What’s interesting about this particular wedding is that it was a bigger deal on Pinterest than on Facebook. Hmmm.
BONUS: Billy Idol had the chance of a lifetime and missed. Luckily he rectified his mistake.
We think that Preacher Michael Curry is the breakout star, here.

YouTube: Good News & Bad News... Mostly Bad.
We’ll start with the good news first: YouTube’s new music-streaming service rolls out this week! Now that we’ve cushioned that landing for you, let’s push you right over that ledge: YouTube (and Facebook, too) have been ranked as the top sources for exposing children to suicide, violence, bullying, sexual, & drug-related content.

Memewatch: The Internet Is Leaking...
…into our schools, that is. Apparently, schools are celebrating meme days now. Students dress up as their favourite memes and it’s pretty much a perfect reflection of the internet: equal parts cringy and brilliant. If anything, this goes to show how important internet culture/social media is in reaching out to younger people in a meaningful way.
Good job, kids!
Good job, kids!
Facebook: Zuckerberg To Face The EU
The European Parliament announced that it will publicly stream Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony today. We’re really hoping that he’s actually grilled by people who know how to use the internet this time. The real issue here is that we’ve seen a few reports stating that Facebook usage actually increased again, following the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Although this might be only in the age ranges of 50-54 & 65+.
We'll keep you posted.
