It’s another fortnight of exciting comms updates, coming right at you!
This fortnight we’ve been redesigning websites, developing exciting social animations, brainstorming Christmas content and writing captivating blog content. Overall, it’s been a busy (and very creative) couple of weeks!
Meanwhile, we’re already counting down the days until our Christmas party. Organised by our resident ‘Head of Happiness’ Alice, we already know it’s going to be one to remember!
A quick(ish) update for everything going on in the world of social media over the past 2 weeks (warning, Instagram has been busy!):
Facebook, the parent company that owns Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus will now be known as Meta.
The rebrand comes as Facebook (now Meta) splits its focus into two segments: one focused on its existing social platforms and one focused on the development of the metaverse.
While some think that the metaverse could be the future of the internet, we hope this won’t mean we lose our ability to connect with people face-to-face. After all, if lockdown has taught us anything, it is the importance of connecting with people IRL.
