What we’ve got lined up for this weeks Marketing O’Clock:

  • Crack Down On Fake Twitter Followers
    • We learn the (unnecessary?) consequences of buying fake followers. More about this story here.
  • Muting Retargeting Ads
    • Do you ever feel like you are being “pummeled” by ads when surfing the web? Don’t worry, users can now control the kinds of ads they wish to see. What? Yes, it’s true. Read more about it in the link above.
  • You Can Now Schedule Organic Instagram Posts
