Friday Roundup: Grumpy Cat, Twitter at the movies and more

Another Friday and a whole new month. Halloween is over and it’s full-speed ahead from now until New Year’s. For online sellers, these could be the most lucrative weeks of the year. For other types of online businesses, it’s just the opposite. Between the holidays and the travel and the parties, it can be hard to keep workers and clients on task. Trying to close a deal just days before half the people involved leave for a four-day Thanksgiving weekend is stressful and maddening.
My advice: (even if you didn’t ask for it) cut yourself some slack and enjoy the holidays. Easier said then done, I know, but give it a try.

What they are doing is giving us new tools that will make it seem like we’re in control of our News Feed.
If you check your News Feed settings (a section I didn’t even know existed) you’ll find some new groupings of information. At the top is “Seen Most Last Week” which is oddly phrased but I get the point. These are the people, Pages and Groups who had the most to say over the last seven days. And that might not be accurate since Facebook controls what we see, these might just be the top posters who showed up on your account.
Each name has a big Following button right next to it, so if you’re sick of Joseph’s hourly rants you can unfollow him with a click. He’ll still be your virtual friend but you won’t see his posts in your News Feed.
Below that is an even more intriguing box; Unf…
