Facebook Launches VIP App

Behind The Velvet Rope, A New And Better Facebook Awaits

Facebook has launched the Mentions app, a Facebook affiliated social network with one barrier to entry: you have to be famous.

The app is designed for ‘actors, athletes, musicians and other influencers’ (presumably including social media bloggers) to communicate with their fans and with each other without having to deal with the constant pressure that having a public Facebook profile entails or the relative distance which an official page implies.

Generation Z Dominate Social Media

Social Media Marketers Tap Into Generation Z Potential

Generation Z were the lab rats for the rise and development of social media. Thrown into the unknown, murky world of online interactions the post-2000 generation has been shaped by the digital age in which they grew up – even millennials (the slightly older demographic born between the 1980s and 1990s) lived a portion of their lives in which the internet, mobile phones and social networking were still slightly foreign concepts. But for the youngest amongst us, social media has made them digital-savvy entrepreneurs before they’re old enough to order a pint.

Long Overdue FCA Policy Renewal On The Table

Financial Sector May Finally Have Chance To Engage With Social Media

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is expected to release new guidelines concerning financial sector marketing on social media next month, following pressure at the Social Media Leadership Forum (SMLF) held recently in London.

At the SMLF, London’s major financial players expressed their reluctance to invest in British social media marketing due to antiquated and unclear regulations which, if not adhered to, could result in a fine being administered to those firms who do fall foul of existing rules.
