Social Media NZ Weekly Wrap-Up – AOL goes shopping and Facebook releases new features

Happy Valentines! The team here at SMNZ hope you all get ridiculously spoilt in some way or another. Two major social media-related events went down in the past week, the first of which was the long-rumoured AOL acquisition of the Huffington Post, which was quite significant as it showed the world how with you can go from blog to media conglomerate with the right mix of great content. Secondly, Facebook released their new photo interface to all users and revamped their Pages offering, which got Page admins buzzing the world over. We look forward to seeing how Facebook continues to push the boundaries throughout the year.

Editor in Chief at here SMNZ, I have a passion for social and digital media. When not writing and managing SMNZ I am the Head of Innovation at TAG The Agency, a digital ad agency and the Head of Sales and Marketing for End-Game, a software development agency. I'm also involved with a number of startups and I am always keen to support those that are bold enough to give things a go. Start something, better to try than to live wondering what if...
