Social Media News to Know: October 2020

  |   Insights   |   No comment

You may not always have the time to learn about the latest and greatest social media trends (let alone the luxury of resources and budget to implement them). Instead, let Tripepi Smith provide you with a regular roundup of social media news we think you need to know. Here are three stories that caught our attention this past month:

  1. Nextdoor’s new Code of Conduct for Public Agencies prohibits elected officials and staff from campaigning on the platform. It also encourages staff and elected officials to join as “private citizens” of their neighborhoods and not post on city business.
  2. Twitter is rolling out a “read before you retweet” feature, encouraging users to read beyond headlines before sharing articles.
  3. Facebook is temporarily prohibiting ads about social issues, elections or politics in a step to “preserve the integrity” of the 2020 General Election. The restrictions will be in effect October 27, 2020 through November 3, 2020.
