    It may have been a shorter work week than usual, but the inbound marketing news sure didn't slow down. Between new feature releases on your favorite (or maybe not) social networks, websites still recovering from the recent Google Penguin updates, and the usual thought-provoking inbound marketing content that fills our tweet streams, we have a lot to catch up on. So here's a distilled version of all that industry awesomeness in case you missed it while trying to squeeze a five-day work week into four ;-)

Plus, it opens with a joke -- might as well have a chuckle while you read about site crawls.

    Facebook and Google+ Feature Changes

    Man alive there was a lot of inbound marketing news this week. First, Facebook announced the launch of Promoted Posts that lets us extend the reach of our page content. Then, Google+ rocked our worlds with the death of Google Places, which was officially replaced with Google+ Local. That's right, local businesses, now you have to use Google+! Muahaha. Finally, Facebook came back again to make our lives easier by allowing us to schedule our posts for the future, and letting us assign page admins to certain roles that limit (or increase) their ability to make changes to our brand's social presence.
