As Google continues to expand advertising capabilities with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, more and more manual settings and elements within the Google Ads platform are being reduced or even removed. One of the most recent announcements from Google states that advertisers will no longer be able to create or edit expanded text ads (ETAs) after June 30, 2022. Below is a Google Ads LinkedIn post containing a notable statistic, further driving home Google’s overarching message of the impact of machine learning.

Clubhouse hit the Social Media scene earlier this year and is starting to gain some traction – with users, activity, and funding. It is only available for iPhone users now, downloaded as an app, as there is no version for Android offered yet. Currently it is considered in testing mode (beta), as you must be invited by a current Clubhouse user to “join the party”.
