In case you missed it, here’s what happened in the web world this week:
Typically, you probably pin something and never return to make the purchase. However that may all change now that Pinterest will let you know when your pins go on sale! That’s right, Pinterest is now emailing alerts to you when something you’ve pinned hits the sale rack. This may be bad news to some people’s wallets…
Starbucks decided to shed its previous Wi-Fi agreement with AT&T for something a little, Googlier. Google announced it would be the new Internet service provider for the renowned coffee shop, providing connections speeds that are ten times faster than AT&T‘s previous system.
Facebook announced Wednesday that it’s going to be rolling out embeddable posts over the next few weeks. Meaning as we’ve seen with Twitter posts, you’ll be able to acquire a code, embed it somewhere else on the web, and voila! Embedded Facebook status. So now you can post, share, and embed: just to make sure no one missed your update.
Facebook is also hard at work to roll out annoying auto-play video ads to your newsfeed, very soon. It is rumored that the 15-second video ads will be arriving to Facebook later this year. Prepare yourselves!
