Facebook Pages may lose some of their likes soon. Thursday the company warned businesses it’s removing likes from deactivated or memorialized accounts. The like dip would be more of an ego hit for companies than an actual hit on their Page’s reach, since Facebook is only removing people who weren’t around anyways. On the upside, Facebook points out that this “gives businesses up-to-date insights on the people who actively follow their Page.”
Apple iPhone and iPad owners opting to use the official Gmail application have a compelling upgrade waiting for them notes The Verge. The newest version of Gmail for iOS takes advantage of Apple’s willingness to let third-party apps share information and have actionable notifications. Gmail for iOS now lets you reply to incoming mail through notifications, for example, meaning you never have to leave the app you’re in when replying. Messages showing on the lock screen can now be archived or deleted as well, making it quicker to manage email. Gmail can be added to the “share” menu in iOS 8 as well, so you can send images or documents outside of the Gmail app.
