Fortune 500 has produced a list of the 100 best companies to work for in the world for the past twenty years. Within these twenty years, Google has made eleven appearances. Within these eleven features, the company has been ranked first place six times. The tech giant is worth $75 billion but unlike some soulless rich corporations that exploit its workers and make them miserable, Google makes its working environment a home away from home. Some may argue that it’s even better than any home.
Fortune 500 has a survey that assesses the opinions of workers and their feelings in relation to several issues. One of the first questions is, “What do you want in a workplace?” The truth is, human beings spend more time at their job sites than they do in their homes.

The past ten years have been a wild ride, as far as mobile marketing has been concerned. The industry generates billions of dollars in revenue each year and shows no signs of slowing down.
Today’s Marketing Trends
Things are moving so quickly with technology and how that applies to mobile marketing that it’s dangerous to even discuss the trends that are going on right now. It doesn’t take a lot to make information or an idea archaic these days.

What this means is that you now have the ability to search for images on Facebook using keywords that describe things that might be found in these images. You are no longer limited to using tags and captions.

Almost everyday, we’re met with news about how blue light from our computers and mobile devices is harmful to us. Since we all spend so much time looking at screens, it makes sense to try to find a way to decrease the amount of damage that is done. An older app named F.lux used to be available for iOS that would change the screen of your computer or device according to the time of the day. This meant that you'd be seeing less blue light. Recently though, Apple shut down F.lux (which is still available for Windows, Linux, and Android) and created their own version of it available for download via update: Apple Night Shift.
