New this week in the world of digital marketing: Later in the year, Chrome will send out its new side search panel to everyone. Roughly half of all Twitter users in the United States are United States are passive bystanders passive bystanders. Facebook is experimenting in showing more short-form videos on search results; WordPress has introduced a new Speed Lab plugin to make sites speedier; and Pin also enables users to share concept boards on other social media networks.
The most recent incidents, developments, and information are as follows:
Chrome now has a search bar on the side, accessible on Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu computers.
Google’s newest Chrome add-on, Side Search, streamlines the search process.
It is not possible to easily open search results in a new tab with Chrome; rather, you must either use the address bar “back” button or accept this as the only means of returning to the result page.
In the most recent Chrome Canary release, two more settings can be found in chrome:/flags that affect the functionality of Side Search. The three tabs allow you to access your bookmarks, reading list, and side search from of the enlarged menu just on right side of the computer (the “back panel”). To receive the functionality, you need to activate the very last option.
Once enabled, a “G”-shaped button will appear in the upper-right corner of Google search results.
With this button clicked, a sidebar will appear to the left of the currently active tab.
This capability, which Google has now made available on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, will soon be accessible to anybody running Chrome 100 or Chrome 101.
The majority of American Twitter users, 49%, are just lurkers.
Half of all American people who use Twitter, according to the latest study, prefer to just observe the platform rather than participate actively in the conversation.
For the purposes of the Pew Research Center’s definition of “Lurkers,” a Twitter user who has posted less than five tweets in a given month is considered an inactive user. If lurkers do tweet, they are more likely to respond to an existing tweet than to compose their own. People above the age of 18 in the US make up the bulk of the most frequent tweeters.
Among Twitter users, 59% are between the ages of 30 and 49, while just 18% are between the ages of 18 and 29 and don’t tweet very often. That second group tweets more often.
Trolls prefer to listen to others than to provide their own opinions.
Researchers write in their report, “Seventy-six percent of anonymous users who lurk say that use the site mainly to take in the views of others rather than share their own. Only 6% of users regularly share their own thoughts and ideas on the site.”
Among less active users, 13% claim that learning about new perspectives is why they visit the site, whereas just 5% of more regular users say the same.
51% of lurkers’ retweets are replies, compared to 30% of more active tweeters, whereas reposting make up a lesser fraction of tweets overall for basement dwellers.

They’re everlasting and useful in expanding one’s Pinterest following. To ensure that Idea Pins are still discoverable by everybody, Pinterest has made them available in a full-screen feed under the “Watch” tab, where users can browse and interact with new content from companies and artists. With the addition of the Idea Pin partici, a Pinterest creator’s unique material may now spread to even more people, both on and off of Twitter.”

Google is Testing Out a New Feature That Will Increase the Visibility of Short Videos in Search Results.
Google may prioritise short videos in its search engine results.
Daniel Marshak, a Google App Manager responsible for videos in search results, shared this news on a recent episode of the Google Off the Record podcast. Marshak was joined by Gary Illyes and Lizzi Sassman, two members of the Google Search Relation team.
