We spread our arms a little less wide this week as we opened up our new ‘compact’ edition of The Age. They’ve certainly had a lot of news to fill the new smaller pages with as Victorian Premier Ted Bailleu resigned on Wednesday evening to be replaced by Dr Denis Napthine.
As well as updating the print edition, Fairfax has also updated the Sydney Morning Herald and Age websites and have been playing with the layout daily since Monday.
In other online changes, Facebook has begun rolling out design changes to its News Feed today. The new design has a big focus on visuals and makes bookmarks more relevant. One of the key things to take note of for those of us managing Facebook pages is that Facebook now encourages us to optimise imagery for high-resolution feed stories by providing images that are 600 x 600 pixels.
In the lead up to International Women’s Day (today!) there has been much discussion about where women are sitting in the world, and what the future holds (or should hold). According to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, women earn on average, 17.4 per cent less than men and in 40 years’ time women will have $114, 000 less superannuation. Celebrating women making a lot of money, BRW released the inaugural BRW Women’s Rich List this week. Topping the list was Vicky Teoh.
