Monday Mentions : 3rd November

The first week of November aka “Fireworks making you jump out of your seat every few hours” week is in full swing. After a fun filled Halloween weekend and a comedown from the sugar overdose of unclaimed trick of treat goodies, all eyes on are the big names who are suddenly panicking about their back links and how Groupon is only catching on to what their audience might want.

Let’s take a look at the biggest stories from the weekend and what people on Twitter have had to say about it:

ICYMI, the big story from the weekend was the *revelation* that Hotels.com was caught buying links; sort of like being caught cheating in a cheap hotel room.

Groupon have realised that being a company that relies on local conversions, they would do good to have a search function on site for people to find more and more offers for areas they’d be interested in.

Reddit: the last bastion against trying to promote your business.  That doesn’t mean you can’t try your hardest not to get downvoted out of existence.

Bing are now letting users have the ability to search with Emojis. We’re predicting the competition for salsa lessons using the lady in a red dress will sky-rocket.

And finally, Grant will be the featured speaker at this month’s Lunch & Learn series for the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. Find out how to get tickets!
