Facebook Adds Polls to Messenger Stories. As Facebook continues on its quest to push the wider adoption of stories, this week, they’ve added a new feature to their ‘Messenger Stories’ variation, in the form of Messenger Stories polls. Per Andres Hutchinson, Social Media Today, writes, ‘You can now add a poll sticker to your Messenger story…to do this, you simply take a photo in the Messenger camera, then add a poll sticker from the stickers listing. You’ll then have the option to add your question and answer options, and you can place the poll sticker anywhere on your image.’

‘As you can see, the addition makes sense as polls have proven popular on Instagram Stories, and you can already conduct polls in Messenger conversation threads, so adding them to Messenger Stories seems like a natural progression. It also seems that Facebook’s now actually calling this option Messenger Stories now, as opposed to ‘Messenger Day’. Now, you’ll be able to cross-post your Instagram Story to Facebook (and Messenger), and include an Instagram poll, which people won’t be able to vote on in either of those other apps, while you’ll also be able to post a Messenger poll to Facebook which you will be able to interact with…but you can’t post it to Instagram.’

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

‘Roseanne’ Cancelled By ABC After Running Off At The Fingers On Twitter

Per Joseph Otterson writing in Variety, ‘ABC has pulled the plug on the revival “Roseanne.” The move comes after series star Roseanne Barr made a comment on Twitter Tuesday morning referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as the “offspring of the ‘Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.’” “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement. Barr deleted her tweet about Jarrett not long after posting it. She followed it up with an apology which read, “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste. I am now leaving Twitter.” The revival of the classic sitcom was set to air a 13-episode eleventh season this fall.
