Gen Z loves a well-known social media idea.

College freshmen use patio to meet people before they arrive on campus, reports BuzzFeed News. Although the app was originally developed to help current students stay connected, the Patio team expanded its reach by providing a safe, welcoming place for new freshmen. This allows new students to connect with others who have been accepted into the same school and help take away the “OMG, will I be making friends?” Fear.

Ray Huera, an environmental toxicology major who helped coordinate the launch of Patio, said:

“[Current students] are not so much looking for new people to get to know as incoming students and career changers. “I think this will definitely draw more people to the Patio app because the priority for incoming freshmen is to find new people to make friends with, and Patio does just that.”

As The Facebook, you must be a verified student with a college email address to join Patio. Corresponding the description in the App Store, more than 250,000 students are already using Patio at more than 100 universities.

Why this matters: Online friendships are the norm, but connections that start on Patio can expand to other social networks and into the real world. But it’s also a reminder that social media is now old enough to essentially have a “reboot”: This idea replicates the very first modern social network and returns to the medium’s roots as a more niche tool that facilitates interaction in the community real life easier.

The results show that consumers are concerned about their privacy and are being tracked online. In fact, only 27% of consumers say they fully understand how brands and companies use their personal information to create targeted ads. If given a choice, 42% of consumers would not share personal information with advertisers online.

These numbers show that the advertising industry cannot ignore consumer feelings about privacy. People lose their trust in targeted advertising, which means companies must commit to protecting their customers’ private information and handling it responsibly.

LinkedIn introduces carousel posting option

Goodbye, temporary carousel posts. LinkedIn is launched a native carousel function It allows users to select multiple still images and/or video clips to add to a post. You can also add alt text during the setup process and rearrange your uploads before sharing them.

New tools on LinkedIn

Before the native carousel feature was released, Users had to attach PDFs to their updates. The PDFs were then converted into a multi-frame preview deck, which — spoiler alert — doesn’t look as good as embedded posts.

Why this matters: LinkedIn is currently seeing record levels of engagementand a study on LinkedIn content found that native content generates three times more clicks than any other type of content. And for small to medium-sized accounts, videos generated the highest engagement rate per impression. With stats like this, it’s worth updating your LinkedIn strategy and the type of content you share.
