Small Business Tech Bulletins for June

  • Facebook updates video rankings: Facebook has modified its News Feed algorithm to reward creators who publish video content that sees longer average watch times and generates more repeat views. In addition, Pages posting unoriginal or re-purposed videos will be penalized through limited access to visibility and monetization. This means small businesses should think about how to keep audiences coming back, should post their strongest images/video clips first, and should ensure content is original, relevant and shorter to get optimum visibility.
  • WiFi 6 – better, faster internet is coming: Thirty percent faster than WiFi5, WiFi6 is designed to allow network access points like routers to communicate more efficiently with more users and devices at once, which helps them use less power. Wi-Fi 6 routers will be able to pack more information into each signal they send, so they can communicate with devices faster and more efficiently. And, best of all, Wi-Fi 6 access points will also be smarter about scheduling when devices should wake up and request information.  
  • Small-business owners are stressed and struggling to unplug: A new survey by OnePoll on behalf of GoDaddy shows that small-business owners spend 17 days a year worrying about business-related issues outside working hours. In addition, more than half (51%) say they have trouble switching off from work during periods when they’re not supposed to be focusing on company-related tasks. In fact, 41% say they often get pulled into business matters when trying to unplug. Ease the tension by scheduling breaks during the week, taking vacations, outsourcing, and practicing better self-care.
