The Facebook updates you need to know about

At the annual developer conference on Tuesday Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive of Facebook, announced plans to shift users towards private conversations and away from public broadcasting on social networks.

The conference also unveiled a redesign of the Facebook desktop and mobile app. The updates will include new features that will promote more small group conversations instead of messages and status updates on the news feed. The redesign is being hailed “FB5” and will be rolling out over the next several months. Zuckerberg is convinced these updates “will end up creating a more trustworthy platform.”

Facebook has made a conscious effort to push messaging apps WhatsApp and Messenger. This update will allow them to be in the forefront of changing social media behaviors and encourage more private and small community conversations.

There are updates to other platforms including Instagram. The photo-sharing social platform has a new camera feature called Create Mode which will allow users to create a post for stories that aren’t a photo or video. At the developer conference it was also announced that Instagram is going to be running testing on hiding likes for users. The company stated “We are testing this because we want your followers to focus on the photos and videos you share, not how many likes they get.” The post creator will still be able to see the number of likes on a post. 

They will also allow influencers to tag clothing items they are wearing in a post so followers can purchase within the app. Zuckerberg also announced Oculus, the virtual-reality company, will start shipping two VR headsets later this May.

Pelotonia

By OppGenetix

OppGenetix is proud to partner with Pelotonia in 2019

Pelotonia has started a movement that inspires meaningful collective action by mobilizing purpose-driven communities and accelerating funding for innovative cancer research. This collective action involves a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment, and volunteerism all with the goal to fund cancer research.

All proceeds raised by riders, virtual riders and volunteers go directly towards cancer research at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – The James. Last year, the organization raised over $27.4 million for cancer research, bringing their 10-year total to over $184 million raised for cancer research. With their record-breaking 8,470 riders and 3,056 volunteers from more than 40 states, Pelotonia is making a major impact on cancer research.  

In 2019, Pelotonia Ride Weekend is scheduled for August 2-4. Participants who register as a rider have the option of 15 routes to choose from, ranging from 25 miles to 200 miles. Each of their riders has a fundraising commitment starting at $1,250 – $3,000 with 100% of every single dollar they raise going back to cancer research.

At OppGenetix, we believe in making a difference in our community. We are committed to causes such as Pelotonia as they, not only have a local but global impact on a universal struggle to end cancer. Our team has been helping execute a lead generation initiative through digital advertising for this year’s Pelotonia race and fundraising efforts toward cancer research. This has allowed Pelotonia to maximize their digital advertising impact so 100% of every dollar raised can go towards cancer research.

Are you interested in joining the movement? There are many different options available for riders of all types. Let’s work to achieve a healthier world and live our best lives. Please visit the Pelotonia website for more information on how to register.
