In the November episode of “The Hobson & Holtz Report,” aka FIR 164, Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz reviewed these stories:

  • With the influencer and micro influencer market saturated, marketers now look to nanoinfluencers
  • By 2022, most of the skills required for employability will be soft skills
  • The length of YouTube videos people will watch on their phones continues to increase
  • Gen Z uses text and chat more than any other generation, but how do they feel about new technologies?
  • Fake videos have entered the political space; can business be far behind? But new apps can help identify fakes
  • Dan York reports on Facebook’s new Lasso app, a Google outage, and “signed exchange”
