The Bitcoin hiccup, plenty of post-WhatsApp acquisition chatter, Facebook getting up in LinkedIn's business, Twitter tweaks its product for growth, a surprising data analyst hire at the New York Times, a software vendor guide for employee advocacy, looking at the intersection of journalism and content marketing, conversational advice from 1866 that's still relevant today and more, it's This Week in Digital.

A roundup of relevant links affecting our industry.

Each week, I compose a newsletter that includes a series of links about current events and trends in the worlds of technology, social media, mobile, digital communications and marketing in order to keep leaders up to date on changes, newsworthy items and content that might be useful in their jobs.

If you have additional links, sources or ideas that might be helpful, I'd encourage you to add some via a comment below. And if you’re on Flipboard, you can get these links by subscribing to the This Week in Digital Magazine.
