  2. Facebook enables Continuous Live Video: Facebook gets into broadcasting with Continuous Live Video; DVR not happening.
  3. Coming Soon: Express even more in 140 characters: Twitter announced updates that will give you more room for actual words, #sweet #retweetmyself
  4. Google’s next mobile-friendly update will include page speed: Google’s algorithm (did you look up the definition yet?) marches on with mobile page speed becoming a ranking factor. Yes, mobile is a thing and will be from here on out.
