Welcome to The Connected Church news!
This news is from Facebook.
Our next big news is from Facebook. This is about the announcement of a new interface or app called Facebook Business Suite. Facebook says in its announcement that this is “a new interface to help businesses save time and stay up to date by managing their pages and profiles across our apps”.
The most interesting thing about this announcement is this sentence, which says “…this is a long term investment to make this the main interface for businesses of all sizes who use Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp”. So basically what Facebook is saying is in the coming days, long term investment, that’s the word they use, they are going to bring these four apps, Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp together into this interface. So you as a nonprofit or a ministry, it’s important for you to pay attention whenever Facebook uses these kinds of words because we are all about people, and people are spread across these four big apps, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, and WhatsApp. If they’re going to bring all the people together in one interface, then it’s important for you to pay attention and make sure that this interface is something that is within your radar or within your strategy for Facebook. Do check it out.
