No surprises here, some might say, but it looks like iPhone users rely on Wi-Fi more than Android users. However, this week it happened!

For those who still can’t find their way around the new Facebook, Spotify just came up with what may be the best use for the Timeline.

Over the weekend, you might want to take a look at this list of habits of strategic thinkers, but also keep an eye on some Twitter rumors and what they could mean for brands. Have a good one!
