Social Media Today: Facebook Games, Twitter Streamlined, & Phil Martelli
By Melony Roy
If you spend a lot of time of Facebook playing games like Bejeweled or Candy Crush Saga you’re in good company.
At the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Facebook revealed roughly a quarter of its active users, that’s about 375 million people, play at least one Facebook-connected game in an average month.
Twitter Hints “@” Replies And Hashtags Are About To Be Streamlined
Twitter is reportedly experimenting with a new version of its Android app that removes the need to use the “@” sign in replies entirely.
BuzzFeed reports Twitter’s Head Of News Vivian Schiller has said hashtags and @ replies are “arcane,” and may be reworked to provide a more ‘streamlined’ approach to the platform.
New internet sensation
The grandson of St Joseph’s head coach Phil Martelli is well on his way to becoming an internet sensation.
A video of the four-year old imitating his grandfather on the sidelines during the A-10 championship game now has over 43 thousand views on Youtube.
