Hi Reader,

Most of us keep First Medical Aid in our homes and cars for easy reach when necessary, but how many of us have First Aid Kit for our Feelings? In honour of World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October and our health every single day, we always encourage you to take care of yourself first!

Read Why you need to know your First Aid for Feelings from our friend Thor A Rain at The Helpful Clinic.

Instagram Shenanigans

No more IGTV

Don't freak out - all that is gonna happen is that all your videos (short and long) will now combine under one tab. Because Instagram is retiring IGTV brand and merging video feed posts into a single format - "...introducing a new Video tab on your profile, where this combined video format will live, to make it easier for people to discover new video content.” says Instagram

LinkedIn The Wise

Articles on your page

'Articles' is rolled out for Company Pages. There are things to consider when publishing your LinkedIn article.

Live streaming

It's not a given to everyone. You need to get approved from LinkedIn to live stream on your LinkedIn profile.

Twitter Chatter

Only 74 days to go 🎄

🧑‍🎄 Twitter updates Christmas Hub to help marketers plan their holiday campaigns. The mini-site is fairly simple, and there’s not a heap of new resources as yet, but there are some helpful usage stats and notes on key trends.

Facebook 😒*

Youth immigration

We said it before and we'll say it again, Facebook might not be the right platform for you if your target audience is the younger generation (specifically 25 years and under) - bases on internal documents showing Facebook usage among young users is in steep decline

Facebook Business Suite is here to stay (for now)

TikTok 🕺

Captions on or off?

Of course, the right answer is - always ON! That's how you add accessibility to your videos and they can be helpful for people who are in environments where they can’t use the audio and/or don’t have headphones available.

Which of these news are YOU excited about the most?
