Have you noticed who is the face of your favorite brands on TikTok? Sometimes, it's an employee. We talk about some examples of this trend, the risks, and what you should consider if your brand wants to hire an in-house creator. Also this month, humor is on the way out in marketing. Plus, do you need to be active personally on social media to be hired for a social job? Also, a backlash against what some people call the "stuffy and fake" feel of LinkedIn, one company’s drastic move to reduce meetings, and more!
