St. Patrick’s Day: St. Patrick’s Day is upon us but for most of the nation, festivities started on Friday night and wrapped up yesterday afternoon. Los Angeles events included pub crawls, parades, festivals and parties throughout the county. The celebrations continue today with a St. Patrick’s Day party in Pershing Square which includes a motorcycle parade, concerts and Irish food beginning at 11 a.m. Perhaps the most memorable part of this year’s holiday is the “Shamrock Shake” that rocked Los Angeles early this morning.
Social Media: Facebook continues down a path of change as it changes the look and feel of company business pages and Newsfeed. Staying true to their emphasis on visual content, photos and videos are now larger than ever as users scroll through their news feeds. Company pages have a new streamlined look that will eventually roll out to all accounts.
Technology: Multiple Google programs have gone down over the past two days including YouTube, Google Hangouts and Google Spreadsheets. Although YouTube is back up, other apps are still malfunctioning. You can check Google’s updates on the problem here.
