Wendys wades into Fortnite, wreaks havoc

Wendys (the burger place) created a Wendy character in the online game Fortnite, and started smashing up the burger joint Durrr Burger, starting with the frozen meat.

They were streaming it over Twitch and it got thousands of views - super smart marketing.

The question arose earlier in November when Fortnite tweeted a poll-question asking their followers if they preferred ‘Beef Boss’ or ‘Tomatohead,’ two in-game skins depicting mascots for the fictitious chains Durrr Burger and Pizza Pit.

The situation escalated when food trucks for each restaurant were seen competing for territory throughout the Fortnite’s sprawling map.

In a surprising series of events, Wendy’s has sided with Team Pizza, claiming they spotted freezers at Durrr Burger locations in game that go against Wendy’s philosophy of “Fresh, Never Frozen” when it pertains to hamburger meat.

Facebook watch! Hold a watch party! What?

Facebook Watch is a video-on-demand service operated by Facebook.

It was announced on August 9, 2017, with initial availability the day after, and with rollout to all U.S. users by the end of the month.

Facebook Watch's original video content is produced for the company by partners, who earn 55% of advertising revenue while Facebook keeps 45%.

It has gotten a little more promising - Facebook Streaming All Episodes of Joss Whedon’s ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ ‘Angel,’ ‘Firefly’ for Free.

Only problem is... It doesn't look like they work in NZ.
