It’s Friday, you did it, again 🙂

One big thing
This week felt like the real start to the second quarter and we’re seeing it in this week’s stories. With earnings season in, Snap usage rising, Google making hiring freezes, the waters are still choppy. But business must go on, NBCU announced a more integrated ad product with their own ecommerce check out. And Horizon media took a deep dive into how our use of emojis has changed in the past month.
