WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 325 – A Different Facebook for Everyone

WPTavern: WPWeekly Episode 325 – A Different Facebook for Everyone

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I discuss what’s new in Gutenberg 3.4 and share our recent experiences with the editor. We talk about Facebook’s decision to shut down its API for apps to publish to user’s profiles on their behalf. This leads to a side rant of our user experience with Facebook and the history between it and Twitter.

We talk about what’s new in WordPress 4.9.8 RC 3 and when you can expect a final release. Last but not least, we discuss Slack’s acquisition of HipChat and share our reasons for joining Twitter.
