HubSpot Rebrands Content Strategy as SEO, NAACP Announces #LogOutFacebook Protest, & 4 Marketing Tools to Make Your Life Easier ...This is THE LATEST!

Whenever our Alexa tells me the morning weather while I'm hiding under the covers or solves a simple math equation for me -- both of which I could easily do myself if I exerted a minimal amount of effort, but "LOL nope!" -- I find myself thinking:

"I, for one, am thankful for our Skynet overlords."

While it may not seem like a big deal, here's why I believe this move will only create confusion and negatively impact how marketers think about content strategies.

The NAACP responded with #LogOutFacebook, a protest that serves as a call to federal lawmakers to investigate the social media giant. For both users and marketers, this is an important data privacy story to follow -- here's what you need to know.
