Small Business News Stories in Perspective – Week of April 12


Here is a recap of key stories and developments this week in small business news … in case you missed them.

Much of the small business news involves economic and policy issues.  Big picture issues like Saturday mail delivery not going away after all, the Federal budget, and the use (or misuse) of taxpayer funds were the biggest headlines.

The news in social media, commerce and online marketing was relatively light this week. LinkedIn introduced streamlined search, and the world is still digesting the news about Facebook Home.
More detail is below, as the Small Business Trends Editorial Team puts it all in perspective:
