We may have spoken too soon when we said last week that it doesn’t seem like we can catch a break from the drama on the social media space. This week has been relatively quiet in the social space – not much happened that drew the usual attention.
Yet, we have some interesting items that drove conversations through the week:

It was like a dream but a bad dream for Pep Guardiola’s men.
