Same day, same bar: different intern. Louise is gone (if I could insert a crying emoji, I would), so Jacqueline (that’s me, in third-person) is taking her place as the designated twitter scribe. Please, hold your applause.

Because of my sorry sober state, I was the first to jump straight into business about my twitter topics of the day: first, August 9th was #BookLoversDay! As someone who’s always 190 pages deep into some novel or another, it was truly a day to be celebrated.
On the Facebook side of things, there’s a new policy that has been put into place that affects Facebook Ads – in a good way. The pesky problem of accidental clicks on an advertisement has been around since advertisements have started. It proves to be an even more prevalent problem on social media with a smaller screen and a clumsier thumb; however, Facebook has now acknowledged these issues and has stopped charging businesses for clicks that are immediately backed out of after all of two seconds. Now, the field of Facebook advertisements may see more accurate results when compared to click rates.
