Welcome to a new month. Issue 4 here. Woop! Woop!!

Buffer has always been transparent with salaries (among other things). You should check out recent changes to their salary formula.

And we've reached the end of this issue. Expect update email about changes to SharedBox during the week. And don't forget to follow us on Twitter. See you next week.
