The Week in Social #311

We spend the week reading the best things we can get our eyeballs on and on Fridays we share them here with you as The Week in Social. 

We’re going to try to keep it short and sweet this week for the U.S. holiday, but we still wanted to keep you on track with the latest platform updates because there are a lot of them.

Read anything good that we missed? Share it with us on Twitter or give us your thoughts at @UnionMetrics.
