Apr 2020

As businesses do their best to get situated with the new online norm, social media platforms are trying to help by providing tools for success. To give users an avenue to communicate, Facebook launched its new Messenger Desktop App to give users access to group video calls and chats. For companies that sell products, Pinterest gives those businesses an outlet to become a verified merchant while LinkedIn is offering job listings to help promote essential businesses. 


Facebook Launches a New Messenger Desktop App

In order to help users stay connected, Facebook launched its new Messenger Desktop App that simplifies video calls and chats. Not only does this feature give you the ability to connect with others, but you are also able to multitask by popping in and out of the app, view your messages, and receive notifications. The app allows your chats to sync across your mobile device and your desktop.

There’s been a lot of popularity with Zoom and Blue Jeans.  Will you move your online meetings to Facebook?


Pinterest Encourages Your Business to Become a Verified Merchant

As more people online shop, Pinterest has become a major player in the retail space.  The platform serves as inspiration during the times when physical stores have closed.
