Here are this weeks highlights from FACTEUR PR:

1.) Workplace by Facebook

Facebook announced today that Workplace will officially launch on Monday, October 17. Workplace operates like a social network for your business. Almost like an intranet and project management software, it's a secure space to share communications and ideas with your teammates. Workplace is not connected to your existing Facebook personal accounts, but does still feature a newsfeed, live video, and chat features. 

2.) Investigations into reach versus engagement metrics when it comes to customer behavior

Glossy posted a great read this week about data-driven marketing when it comes to the fashion industry that I think we can all benefit a read from if you work or support a product-based business. "Without using customer data to track purchases, recommend products, figure out why a customer made a return, or research related search habits, luxury brands run the risk of getting edged out by faster-moving competitors, like affordable luxury brands Tory Burch and Michael Kors, and digitally native brands, like Bonobos or Everlane." Your customers are trying to tell you things: listen! Read the full story here.

3.) #PRWeekConference
