May 1 - Issue #75
Andy Abramson

It’s May 1 and in some parts of the world it’s a day off. In other places it’s a normal workday. Before we jump into the news let me first say thank you to all of your who are subscribing to The COMUNICANO
Each day I check the open rates and click throughs and remain amazed at how many of you open the newsletter and click through it daily. To give you some idea, the average open rate of The COMUNICANO is nearly 35%, while the click through rate is regularly now over 18%. On some days we are breaking a forty percent open rate, which in any industry sector for a newsletter is downright impressive. 

With that in mind I want to ask you to do two things. Your help and feedback. 
First each day, at the bottom of the newsletter you will see two items. One is a set of THUMBS UP/THUMBS DOWN icons. If you can choose one each day, that will let me know if you liked the content or not that day, and in turn will help me in being more selective on the content that’s included going forward. 
The second request is, if you are so inclined, is to ask that you share the newsletter with others via Facebook or Twitter. You can do that by clicking either the sharing icons at the side of the newsletter or those found at the bottom, or you can just forward it to people you think may be interested.

Now, onto the NEWS  about Trump and Tech, Fox on a buying spree, the Netflix theft, Twitter and Bloomberg and a whole lot more, all in today’s COMUNICANO!
