I don’t know what shocks me more, the fact we are into the second week of September, or the fact there is only fifteen Monday’s left until Christmas! I can’t wait to be sipping hot chocolate and singing The Pogues – Fairytale Of New York.
However, until then, sit back and enjoy the second week of September’s Features and Updates of Google Advertising, Microsoft Advertising, and Facebook.

Facebook Launches ‘Facebook Campus’:
This year has been tough on students, so hopefully, this update will help to facilitate their connection among peers.
