• Google’s Thanksgiving Report Is Here, Say Bye-Bye Traffic Jams!

    There’s a lot of iconography surrounding the Thanksgiving holiday season: orange leaves falling from the trees, pumpkins decorated to look like turkeys, the roast turkey itself with all the fixings, and of course, traffic. And not the web kind. No, I mean good, old-fashioned car traffic. Being bumper-to-bumper with your fellow travelers itching to get to their destination and have a taste of that good, good bird. If you’re like me, bumper-to-bumper traffic is annoying at best and infuriating at worst. Thankfully, Google’s latest Thanksgiving report hopes to ease your blood pressure on the road. Give Me Stuffing or Give…

  • LinkedIn Algorithm Update Boosts Engagement for You! – Commexis Cast Short, Oct. 29, 2018

    HOORAY! LinkedIn has changed their feed algorithm! But what does that mean for your posts?  We’ve covered a lot of LinkedIn’s updates to their platform on this show, and some have been better than others. That said, I’m very excited about LinkedIn’s new algorithm change. Here’s why: The adjustment is aimed to help smaller creators (like us) and individuals get more engagement on their posts. If you’re anything like me, you may have noticed a bit of an engagement drought on LinkedIn. A drought you likely aren’t seeing on other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

  • Facebook Video Woes: Inflated Metrics and a Lawsuit – Commexis Cast, October 18, 2018

    Facebook is facing yet another controversy, this time focusing on Facebook video metrics. As David Meyer explains on Fortune, a new lawsuit filed against the social media company claims the 2016 announcement of an error in the total views on a video were inflated by about 60-80%, according to insights found in 80,000 internal Facebook communications. However, the amended claim states that inflation numbers ranged from 150% – 900%.

  • Visual Search: Snapchat and Amazon Come Together! – Commexis Cast, September 28, 2018

    On Monday, Snap and Amazon announced a partnership to bring visual search features to Snapchat. What does this mean? In essence, users will be able to scan a logo or barcode of a product and have Amazon listings appear. What’s particularly fascinating about this is the ability to find a specific product among a line of similar products with the same logos (such as shoes). TechCrunch reports that this is due to a two pronged process. Snapchat analyzes the image, determining if it is a QR Snapcode, object, or song. Then, Amazon’s machine learning recognizes the unique markings of a…

  • Gritty: A Philadelphia Flyers Social Media Boom!

    It’s big. It’s orange. It looks vaguely like a muppet, and it has googly eyes. The Philadelphia Flyers new mascot is named Gritty, and by gosh he is here to stay. It me. #Gritty pic.twitter.com/HfTMVtEAFy — Gritty (@GrittyNHL) September 24, 2018 For the last few weeks, the Flyers have been teasing a reveal of “something” living in the Wells Fargo Center, the stadium of the Flyers. Fan speculation was rampant, but many believed it to be a new mascot. Because 28 out of 31 NHL teams have a mascot, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary. Finally on Monday, Gritty…
