Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube are four giants of social media; for now, we will talk about these four in this blog.

So, let’s shed that clutter and dive right into the good stuff;


So, the newly transformed social media site, which used to be an online video streamer only, changed a bit.

Apparently, on the 22nd of July this year, YouTube updated its terms of service in Switzerland and the European Economic Area.

  • They have added, the age requirement clause, minors will now have a parent’s or guardian’s permission to use YouTube.
  • A significant change that came for companies is if an employee is using YT on the company’s behalf, then the company is accepting YouTube’s terms automatically. This will help YouTube to get hold of the fake news and fake accounts supposedly. 
  • A big plus here will be the privacy section where YouTube restricted itself from using your content even after you have removed it; they will use it but lesser.
  • The significant most change has to be the one where YouTube will now give one a chance to appeal before terminating one’s account. There will be a notice period now.

  • Mark’s little company finally accepts that they take some seventy days to remove your deleted data. In this new update of terms of service, they just have agreed how they do it?


Social media giant with a tie and a plain black suit, LinkedIn recently has announced that they are personalizing the ad section even more. *might have taken a tip or two from FB, but who’s to judge right?*

What they have done is that they are going to make the targeting specific audience for advertising campaign easier. 

Well, this is pretty much it for LinkedIn, they are pretty dull when it comes to updating things.
