Reinventing Engagement LinkedIn Your Newsletter Nijja
LinkedIn’s newsletter readership has tripled within a year reaching over 1.3 million readers daily. The platform has capitalized on this trend by allowing users to publish not one but five newsletters! This enables you to showcase your expertise across several niches. What's more? Each newsletter subscriber automatically becomes one of your LinkedIn followers, boosting your online presence. In a bid to promote the newsletter feature, LinkedIn has also fixed its article editor for a smooth publishing experience.
An Improved Imitation & YouTube's Multifaceted Evolution
The recent updates on YouTube are transforming it into an all-encompassing content hub. It is testing a hum-to-search feature that lets users find content based on a hummed tune, streamlining content discovery. Google already released it in 2020 but there is a catch. YouTube allows you to discover reels, music, and videos in just 3 seconds whereas Google’s hum-to-search feature requires at least 15 seconds of audio. The video-sharing platform is also embracing podcasts by allowing podcasters to upload content via RSS feeds for seamless availability on YouTube Music.

As concerns about data breaches and privacy violations rise, users are seeking alternatives to traditional social media giants. Decentralized platforms like Mastodon, where data is distributed across a network of nodes instead of a central server, are gaining traction for their enhanced privacy and security features.
