10 Recent Changes Impacting Facebook Advertisers

There have been several updates and changes made recently to Facebook ads. Here are 10 of them that you need to know about...

In March, the college-centric social network Yik Yak took a step away from its origins in anonymity by asking users to create "handles" that they could optionally attach to their posts. Today the company is eliminating the last traces of anonymity from its app, requiring users to create handles that will be attached to their activity on Yik Yak. It’s also adding 18-character status messages that expire after 24 hours, as well as a feed of nearby users with whom you can exchange messages. "It’s a richer, more engaging, more personal feed," said Tyler Droll, the company’s co-founder, in an interview. "There are people behind each and every one of these posts. It really enhances a sense of community."

Spammy social network Tsu shuts down

No big surprise here: Tsu, a social network that worked around the App Store’s rules on pay-per-installs, incentivized its users to create content, rewarded people for signing up friends, and got banned from Facebook for spamming, has now shut down. Yes, “pay you to post” and “pay you to friend” turns out to be an unsustainable business model, after all. According to a message on the Tsu website, the company claims it failed to raise an additional round of funding to keep its social network alive.

Airbnb is testing a new app called Airbnb Trips, which offers city guides and local event suggestions. The app was first spotted by Bloomberg, which suggests that the app could be part of Airbnb's plan to begin offering travel services beyond merely booking a home. Those don't appear to be built into the app just yet, but it's easy to imagine Trips turning into a way to make restaurant reservations or book a tour.
