What’s the catch?

Dataset Search allows searchers to find datasets on many topics across environmental and social sciences, as well as data from other disciplines including government data and data provided by news organizations.

Instagram Dives into e-Commerce with a Rumoured Stand-alone Shopping App.

If this comes through, Instagram users would be able to search for products and make purchases directly in the app -according to The Verge reports.

Instagram is yet to comment on this report by The Verge though.

What’s the catch?

It’s been more than a year since Instagram opened up shoppable organic posts to apparel, jewelry and beauty brands.

Also In June, Instagram offered a shopping bag icon to a select number of retailers, allowing them to add an e-commerce element within their Stories. 

And as such, Instagram already has a sufficient number of retailers and advertisers already pushing products on the platform. So it may happen sooner than expected. 

What should you do?

If you sell online or do marketing for e-Commerce business, be prepared!

Follow relevant influencers and blogs where you can get all the gist before anyone else, so you can jump on Instagram shopping app when it finally rolls out.

42% of Facebook Users Stepped back from Daily Activity and Engagement. -Pew Survey June 2018.

According to new survey data from the Pew Research Center (June 2018), 42% Facebook users have stepped back from daily activity and engagement.

This stands in marked contrast to a March 2018 Pew survey that found 74% of Facebook users visited daily while 51% visited multiple times a day.

Decline in Facebook Engagement -Pew Survey Data June 2018

Decline in Facebook Engagement



What’s the catch?
To corroborate this sharp decline in usage and engagement revealed by Pew Survey, Facebook’s Q2 results shows that its daily active user metrics were flat in North America and declined in Europe.

The totality of the Pew survey evidence and other polls by Reuters (March 2018) argues that many Facebook users have become ambivalent and less engaged, especially since the notorious Cambridge Analytica data scandal.

What should you do?
Do not rely solely on your huge Company page followers to help spread your brand message, as this is becoming less effective in terms of reach and user engagement.

It is time to make your brand, business, organization or client more human on Facebook. Think of user engagement campaign that can make your target audience take ownership.

This way you keep your conversations, advocacy and loyalty in top gear.
