October is almost over, and I’m glad to report that the digital marketing news this past month wasn’t too scary.
There’s been some new features rolled out across Google Ads, Google My Business, and Facebook. These features seem to be setting the path for better user experiences in 2019.

Google Shuts Down Google+
After 7 years, Google decided to shut down its Google+ social network over lack of use and security issues.
As Search Engine Journal reported:
“A software bug was discovered that gave developers access to private profile data of over 500,000 users. However, Google says that there is no evidence of developers being aware of this bug. There is also no evidence that any data has been misused.”
Meanwhile, Google+ failed to gain adoption and engagement.
