Obama Breaks The Internet, Facebook Filters Clickbait, and More

Breaking news, trending stories, industry intel:

This is the S/ List.

1. The war on clickbait wages on with Facebook’s latest announcement.

“We anticipate that most Pages won’t see any significant changes to their distribution in News Feed as a result of this change. However, websites and Pages who rely on clickbait-style headlines should expect their distribution to decrease.”

2. Fashion’s favourite makeup artist Pat McGrath has launched a lip kit that everyone wants.

“The 11-piece collection takes stock of every decadent mouth McGrath has crafted over the past two decades, but looming large over them all is a bright crimson lacquer from 2009, with gold pigment swabbed in the center and rimmed along the Cupid’s bow.”

3. President Barack Obama penned an inspiring feminist essay for Glamour and it’s even better than it sounds.

“As far as we’ve come, all too often we are still boxed in by stereotypes about how men and women should behave.”

4. The term “beauty geek” has a whole new meaning.

“For many years, women in the geek space had the worst of all worlds, ignored by both pop culture brands, who didn’t think there was a market for female-oriented products, and mainstream beauty brands, who were more interested in using Hollywood actresses, pop stars, or Instagram models to front their campaigns, alienating those women who prefer reading Deadpool comics to Us Weekly.”

5. Donald Trump’s memory appears to fail him, again.

“US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has backtracked on a claim that he saw video footage of a US cash payment to Iran.

He made the claim at a rally. His team admitted it was incorrect, only for Mr Trump to repeat it at another rally.”
