I don’t have to tell you, but 2020 was quite a year! Despite all the hardships that COVID-19 brought last year in 2020, there is still a lot to be thankful for because of our amazing Salesforce.org community. It was so inspiring to see the community come together to support one other: we saw virtual sprints with attendees from around the globe, community groups meeting virtually for the first time, and community members stepping up to help and support each other.

I know everyone’s probably ready to dive into 2021 and leave 2020 behind…but before we do that, let’s take a look at the top 10 highlights from the Salesforce.org community. These highlights run the gamut and include things like product updates, important announcements, and community milestones.

1. Awesome New Salesforce.org Products, Features, Fixes, and Updates

In April 2020, we announced new innovations in Salesforce.org Nonprofit Cloud that would help … Read more

The FTSE 250-listed insurance provider Just Group (LSE: JUST) saw its share price sky-rocket after releasing its business update today. With a 17% price increase as I write, the Just Group share price is finally back to the pre-crisis levels of around a year ago. 

This is encouraging for a share that saw quite the fall last year. It lost over half its value from the highs seen in February 2020. But I think the important question now is whether JUST can maintain these share price levels and rise from here on. 

I believe there are arguments both in its favour and against it. 

What favours Just Group

Just Group’s latest performance is clearly something that goes in its favour. Its sales are up 12% and it’s fortifying itself against risks by reducing its exposure to the UK’s property market, as well. 

JUST’s also optimistic about 2021. According to … Read more

Good afternoon, readers.

Say you walk into a hospital or other COVID vaccine distribution site. You qualify to get one because you’re a priority group under local regulations, and there are enough available doses around for you to get one. Which one would you actually receive?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already granted emergency authorization to two of them, one from Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech and the other from Moderna. But you’re unlikely to know which one of those you’ll be getting.

This pandemic has had a unifying theme: Triage. You get the resources to who needs them most. You allocate such resources accordingly. That was the case with coronavirus testing at the start of the outbreak. Now it’s the case for one of the most complex immunization campaigns in history.

While the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines share scientific roots, they’re still very different … Read more

I have a prediction.

In 2021, Facebook is going to get busted up like Ma Bell (with Instagram and WhatsApp spun off on their own). The resulting exodus of unhappy advertisers will flee into the willing arms of TikTok, Snapchat, YouTube, and good old SEO.

And the smart marketers will repurpose content in a few clever ways we’ll discuss here.

See, Facebook spent $10.5 billion in legal fees alone in 2019. Still a fraction of $70 billion in ad revenue they earned, from which they generated $18.4 billion in net income. They seemed invincible.

Until they weren’t.

Unable to address mounting issues with content moderation, the government treats Facebook like a publisher (The New York Times), not a technology company that allows social blogging (WordPress).

In 2021, I predict it all comes crashing down. Mister “Senator, we run ads” cannot spin Apple as evil and Facebook as the … Read more
