Tech Talk-Ad Battle

Technology Matters

    You’ve done it.  I’ve done it.  We’ve all done it.
Fallen for “click bait.”  See what crazy things the dog did, then your swept away to cyber nonsense.
    Facebook is fed up!  It’s changing it’s algorithm so you see more posts from friends, less from brands and publishers.
    Taking it a step further, Facebook will try to I-D articles lacking specifics in headlines and give them less prominence.
    This isn’t the first time Facebook has tried to clamp down on click bait, and it won’t be the last.

    Facebook is throwing down with Ad Blocker too by trying to show ads to people using Ad Blocker.  The software is designed to keep your social media marketing spam free.
    Ad Blocker quickly found a way to block the ads again.  Facebook is promising to fight back.  This one will go back-and-forth.

    On a happier note, CVS will let you pay in-store by mobile app by the end of the year.
    You can already make credit and debit card payments through the app.

    Here’s a smile.  Dancing robots.  One-thousand-seven of them in China.  A new record for dancing robots.   Didn’t know that was a record that needed breaking.  
    I don’t know.   I remember these guys going sideways.  And these guys.  I hate those guys.
    Anyway, its all fun and dancing.  Until the robot apocalypse begins.
