What’s Next for Social Media?

Welcome to the Cook Up, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds

What's up Everyone!

Greetings from Brooklyn. I'm your humble and gracious curator here delivering you another week of interesting reads to help you stay on your A-game.

This week's newsletter is packed with goodies. I'm sharing ideas on what's next for social media, the future of work, the creator's hierarchy of needs, and a new study suggesting that faking your emotions at work is burning you out.

Before we start dive-in, I want to mention that I published one new article this week: 3 Types of Friendships You Have According to Aristotle.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Also, a big thank you to Larry Kim, founder of WordStream, for following me on Clubhouse! I would read the WordStream blog a lot when I started learning PPC. Pic because you know... it's social proof. Ha!


Since the housekeeping is done, Let's start cooking!

As always feel free to hit reply and share what you liked, or disliked.
