A new week is here and with it, some social media news you should know about:

- Tumblr Adds Push Notifications for Must-Follow Blogs: Tumblr has added push notifications designed to alert users of new posts on blogs they follow on their mobile devices. The alerts can be accessed from the user menu on the Tumblr app.
- Facebook Updates News Feed Controls: Facebook has given users new controls so they can design a better and more useful news feed experience. The newest controls let users prioritize posts from select friends and Pages, select suggested Pages to follow, and simplify unfollowing friends or Pages. These latest news feed controls are available now for iOS devices and will become available for Android devices and desktop in the coming weeks.
