๐Ÿ˜ Quote of the Week

โ€œNothing works better than just improving your product.โ€

โ€” Joel Spolsky, co-founder of Stack Overflow

๐Ÿ’ญ Wisdom of the Week

If you want to work less and live more find a way to automate the repetitive tasks that you do regularly. If you automate some of your work then you can free up time to work on more complex projects and do the work that you really love.

Make a list of all the repetitive tasks you do, work out how you can automate them, and start working through the list and find the areas where automation can free up your time.

โณ SyncWin Ecosystem Weekly Reflection

Know more about the things that are going on around the SyncWin Ecosystem which you should care about being a Win-Syncer.

๐Ÿ“ˆ Our Plans & Works

SyncWin Community Content Plan: I am trying my best to produce better content in a systematic way for the SyncWin Community and if you're already a member of our Facebook Group then you must know that I recently run a poll to decide which kind of content we should produce for the community.

However, the poll result was not that helpful therefore we decided to try each type of content mentioned on that poll and see which one is getting more love from the Win-Syncers in order to create more of the content that the community actually wants to consume as well as find helpful.

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ Most Popular Community Post

We have multiple popular community posts this week that you should pay attention to if you're really interested in what other people have to say on the topics of your interest.

#1. Future of Oxygen Builder: The topmost community post of this week is about the future of my favorite Oxygen Builder. Actually, the Oxygen Builder has been built using the AngularJS framework which is going to be obsolete soon thus we are curious to know if Oxygen will be updated to the next version of Angular or not.

#2. Zion Builder on AppSumo: The second most popular post is about the Zion Builder, as it has been back to the AppSumo again with the same pricing for the lifetime deal as earlier but this time it's listed on the AppSumo Select and not the marketplace deal.

#3. Ben Pines Left Elementor: The third and last popular community post of this week is about Ben Pines who was the CMO of Elementor but now he is leaving the company for some reason.

๐ŸŒ Buzzing Around the World of Web

Let's discover what's buzzing around the world of the internet that resonates with online entrepreneurs like you and me.

๐Ÿ”Ž Search Engines

Continuous Scrolling on Google SERP: Google is updating mobile search in the US with the ability to continuously scroll as more results automatically load. Itโ€™s a user interface design that works extremely well on mobile for apps like TikTok and Instagramโ€™s Explore page.

With the same design being applied to Google Search, this can increase content discovery significantly. Weโ€™ll see as the months go on if this change helps increase traffic for low-ranking pages.

๐Ÿ“ฒ Social Media

Pinterest Acquisition Update: PayPal is reportedly exploring the purchase of social media company Pinterest, according to Bloomberg. However, PayPal said it is not pursuing an acquisition of Pinterest at this time after several media reported last week that it was in talks to buy the digital pinboard site for as much as $45 billion.

๐Ÿงฎ Digital Brands

Facebook Rebranding: Facebook is planning to change its company name to reflect its focus on building the metaverse, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter.

The metaverse is โ€œgoing to be a big focus, and I think that this is just going to be a big part of the next chapter for the way that the internet evolves after the mobile internet,โ€ Zuckerberg told The Vergeโ€™s Casey Newton this summer. โ€œAnd I think itโ€™s going to be the next big chapter for our company too, really doubling down in this area.โ€
