Digital Marketing Latest Commentary
It’s been a busy week across the social media stratosphere. Facebook announced its embedded post feature yesterday, and Pinterest has introduced a new alert that lets users know when the price of an item they have pinned has dropped. Both features help further establish the functions that marketers have developed for them: Facebook as a content sharing platform, and Pinterest as an e-commerce site.
Facebook now allows users to embed their public statuses across the web. Readers can interact with an embedded status just as they would on Facebook; they can like the page from which the embedded post was pulled, they can follow users who posted the embedded content, and if a hashtag was uses in the status, users can use that hashtag to discover similar content.
