As we prepare to gear up our coverage for this year’s SDCC we’d like to suggest that you enable notifications for your mobile devices. We will surely be bombarding our social media channels on Facebook (fb.com/yakfacecom) and Twitter (@yak_face) with news as it breaks — PRIOR to the news hitting our front page.
We are also conscience that some may not like the constant notfications as well so we suggest turning them OFF if so inclined.
Finally, if you see a story shared by us over the next few days, it is not an attempt to give preferential treatment to any one source or not give due credit were applicable.
All that said; sit back, relax, HAVE FUN and we hope you enjoy the show!
