It’s already mid-June and the GroundFloor Media and CenterTable teams are staying busy with client work, walks in the sunshine and bubbly kombucha breaks from our office tap. Today we’re diving into new shows on Facebook Watch, updated features from Instagram Stories, a feel-good story about an “infuencer dad” and some low-hanging fruit for your team’s SEO efforts. Let’s get to it!
Axios: Facebook rolls out new shows and strategy for “Watch”
A new variety of shows is now available on Facebook’s video tab for “Watch.” In addition to the release, Facebook is offering updates for both strategy and monetization. The Watch feature will expand the video platform and enable Facebook to sell more ads that feel like television commercials.
Instagram Stories continue to add new features, bells and whistles. A new favorite is the lyric feature on the Music filter. Now, when you add a song overlay to your Instagram story, many of the available songs offer a ticker feature of the lyrics appearing as they’re sung. Fancy.

He’s gained 380,000 followers in a single week, so we’ll say it sure did. Follow his antics here.
