p Do you know about Facebook’s 10-year master plan?Most people don’t, but understanding the basic outline of Facebook’s plan can be a major advantage for marketers who are playing the long game.You see, most businesses are so focused on day-to-day operations and Facebook’s last feature launch that they aren’t able to strategically plan for their business’s future with the advertising giant.And we get it - it’s hard enough as it is to stay on top of Facebook’s most recent advertising developments.So, if you don’t have all the time in the world to take a deep dive into this topic (and who does?), this new infographic (via Futurism) wraps it up neatly.

p There are a number of great deals to be had on Amazon, but finding them across the retailer’s vast array of products is still a challenge.All its deals are sourced from Amazon, so you don’t have to worry about fulfillment, shipping or customer service issues.The idea with Nugget is to offer an alternative to popular shopping apps like Wish, which also cater to bargain hunters.Wish shoppers tend to complain about lengthy ship times, poorly made products, or clothing that runs smaller than expected – though many are willing to deal with the downsides in return for the ridiculously low prices.Amazon is also now offering its own curated store through a site feature called Interesting Finds.The idea for the app comes from San Francisco-based developer Tom Schmidt, previously a product manager at both Facebook and Instagram.
