1.Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News: Imposing human editorial values onto the lists of topics an algorithm spits out is by no means a bad thing—but it is in stark contrast to the company’s claims that the trending module simply lists “topics that have recently become popular on Facebook.”

2. What To Do During Your Employees’ First Week To Avoid Losing Them: More than 40% of turnover happens within the first month, which means it’s more important than ever to engage them from day one.

3. Apple had a meeting with frustrated podcasters: Podcasters are frustrated with the way Apple treats the producers of the popular audio format

4. Recruitment Marketing: Your Thank-You Page Is Broken: What most employers don’t realize is that the thank-you page has great potential, but is often overlooked.

5. Science Says You Shouldn’t Work More Than This Number of Hours a DayVarious organizations and independent researchers have looked at the physical, mental, emotional and social effects of working beyond the standard 40 hours a week

Thanks and have an awesome week, FOT Nation!

Cara is the Marketing Manager here at Kinetix and resident Renaissance woman. She refers to herself as a writer, but we think that’s limiting. Instead we call her many things: co-strategist, idea machine, brand builder, Kinetixizer, social-media plugger, blogger, and all-around creative specialist. If you wanna schmooze, try talking DIY and fitness, then top it off with a quick kid or pet mention—gets her every time. Tweet her at @caralucas44.
