Are we Entering the Age of Facebook Fatigue? | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
When it comes to media giants, they don’t get much bigger than Facebook. As of January 2015, the social network claimed a staggering 1.366 billion active users globally.

To clarify, this is a drop in usage rather than user volumes. Nevertheless, of the 8 major social platforms studied, Facebook was

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, May 28, 2015 3:18 AM

I very strongly agree witht premise of the article. We are all suffereing from a surfeit of virtual social networking, and it is telling on us. The compulsion to check posts, like posts and share posts is sapping us of our energy! This doesn't mean that some of us haven't taken advantage of Facebook, like for example promoting my forthcoming books, or even starting a fan following, but then it is true, so many of us start with a few minutes checking Facebook posts before we even start the day. Very soon we will need detox centres for Facebook fatigue, virtual fatigue, and keypad fatigue!

Facebook - Introducing Place Tips for Businesses

Facebook - Introducing Place Tips for Businesses | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
As people continue to use their phones everywhere and all the time—including while they shop and dine—there’s an opportunity for businesses to connect with customers online while they are in store. So earlier this year we started testing Place Tips, an optional Facebook feature that helps people learn about and connect with the places they visit, including businesses. Since we started our test, local businesses that have tried Place Tips have seen a steady uptick in Page traffic from in-store visitors. Today we’re sharing details on how more businesses can get started with Place Tips.
How Place Tips work
Place Tips gather useful information about a business or landmark—like posts from the business’ Page, upcoming events and friends’ recommendations and check-ins—and show it at the top of News Feed to in-store visitors.
Each person’s Place Tips are unique. At a restaurant, Place Tips can show the menu, reviews and frequently mentioned information about the establishment, like a signature cocktail or popular table. Place Tips for a retail store can help customers find business hours, locate popular items and learn about upcoming events.
