My colleague and I write articles about a social media's updates on the platform (e.g. Twitter dark mode, Facebook ad placements).
Whenever we write our articles, we indicate the date to inform the reader when the update rolled out. Should we still add the word "now" even if the date was already added?
"Facebook announced an update on ads placement on June 8, 2019. Now, businesses can decide where to place their ads on a video or on users' Facebook feeds."
The reason I try not to use "now" in articles because let's say someone's reading this article a week or month later, would the word now still be applicable by that time?
I'd really like your take on this. Thanks!
