Facebook has written to both Judith and Nicola (and everyone) to ask us all to review the setting of the groups we belong to. What does this mean and why have they done it? What implications does this sort of thing have when it comes to reliance on Facebook and other third-party platforms. And why are we up in arms when invited to pay for something we so value?
In the Show…
Nicola’s learning to become a day trader, Judith’s been reading two very short books, one about financial abundance and one about Patreon, and she’s noticed something interesting about her clients especially those whose websites are eponymous.
- What’s Fuelled Their Fire?
Judith is revisiting Patreon, thanks to Esther’s donation last week, and Nicola’s got into hot water with YouTube while discovering and re-purposing some of her old Money Gym audio and video content. It’s OK, she’s appealing their “strikeout”.
- FOCUS of the Week
Facebook has written asking us to review our group settings, specifically how much do we want to hear from each of the groups to which we belong? Nicola says this is because they are running out of feed space for sponsored content (ads). Given that, and her news about YouTube and Judith’s interest in Patreon, this causes a review of what we put on our own websites -v- the usage we make of third-party platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Patreon.Facebook has written to both Judith and Nicola (and everyone) to ask us all to review the setting of the groups we belong to.
