On with the news…

Facebook has announced a new set of measures to limit the spread of anti-vax content on its network. And in the article they give a long list of actions they are going to take but I guess the bottom line is that if you have content that is anti-vax, meaning, anti-vaccinations, it won’t get seen.

YouTube is also ramping up its efforts to get rid questionable content, with the addition of a new ‘fact-check’ pop-up which will appear on videos relating to subjects that are prone to misinformation. The new pop-up will appear in search results for certain topics, and will highlight additional information from YouTube’s verified fact-checking partners.

Apparently the people who spy on Instagram developement have spotted a code that reveals a “co-watch content” feature hidden inside Instagram Direct Messaging.

It’s unclear what users might be able to watch simultaneously, but the feature could give IGTV a boost, or just let you laugh and cringe at Instagram feed videos and Stories with other people. We’ll just have to see.

Now let’s quickly recap all the updates from the week. And remember, all of the past broadcasts of these flash briefings, along with show notes and links to resources can be found at

Facebook’s added a secret dark mode to messenger, announced a new set of stickers for Women’s History Month which is of course happening now and has added a new feautre called Tributes for accounts whose owner has passed away.

Twitter debuts new analytics tools for publishers focused on improving video engagement and it’s awesome and I did a live stream about it yesterday. I’ll put a link to it on the show notes page

So if you would go to, search for the Front Row Entrepnreneur and leave a review, I would be so appreciative. It only takes a minute. Maybe not even a minute.

Annnnd… Don’t forget that today is TGIF Friday in my free classroom, The Front Row. This is when members share their wins and anything they want to promote.
