Google i/o starts today and a new Facebook study

Today’s Episode

Google io is here! The best part of it was the announcement of Firebase 2.0. It is shaping up to be a great tool. There are a few great tidbits. One, there is an analytics tool optimized for mobile. Two, it can be used for iOS and Android and it’s free! The demo’s today show how powerful it can be. Dynamic links will help developers get people to download their apps with fewer clicks. They can also track who’s clicking on them too. Messaging users are simple as well. Firebase allows developers to target their customers and hopefully convert mover with some timely messages. Firebase should help developers and marketers find better ways of getting those eyeballs. Let’s see if Android developers respond. On another note, I do like the change Pinterest has made to measuring the reach of pins. Instead of only counting what has been liked, repinned or saved from the source. It also counts other’s that have done the same through other accounts. Things are looking interesting in 2016. Now, on with the show!
