IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Twitter is changing the way it charges advertisers. Currently Twitter receives payments if any of its users interact with sponsored ads. In the future Twitter will allow advertisers to specify exactly how they want to spend their money. For example, only clicks to a certain landing page on a website will be billed.
Foursquare has overhauled its old features. The new Foursquare app will be recommendations based instead of location sharing based. The app redesign was developed to rival Yelp. A new app called Swarm has taken the place of the old Foursquare for social location sharing.
Facebook has started splitting its messages feature off to a new app. Facebook Messenger app will soon replace any messaging capabilities in the current mobile app. The change will only affect iPhone and Android apps. Messaging capabilities will still be available within the Facebook app on iPads and the Windows phones.
