Initially developed by The Trade Desk, Unified ID 2.0 is a soon-to-be open source, industry-wide initiative spanning hundreds of collaborative partners that operate across the open internet.

The ID solution is based on hashed email addresses and phone numbers for use as an identifier for precise ad buying and measurement. Once fully integrated, marketers will be able to activate Adsquare’s audience segments and measure the effectiveness of campaigns connected to Unified ID 2.0 on any collaborating buying platform. Unified ID 2.0 is first rolled out in the United States where it’s currently in beta.

Tom Laband, CEO and co-founder of Adsquare, says: “Our technology allows us to enrich any identifier that is passed along by the supply side as part of a bid request with meaningful data for best campaign results. Therefore, we’re pleased to be part of Unified ID 2.0 and shape the privacy-friendly future of the ad tech ecosystem.“


David Danziger, VP of data partnerships at The Trade Desk comments: “Unified ID 2.0 represents a new, more effective path to connect across digital mediums on the open internet to preserve the quid pro quo of media, which is free content in exchange for relevant advertising. We welcome Adsquare to the growing stable of companies who are joining this important initiative.”

About Tradedesk
Advertising the currency that makes most digital media possible  wasn’t working. Marketers didn’t have access to the data they needed to plan, forecast, and place media effectively.

Twitter is Testing Three New Ad Formats

Twitter | April 01, 2022

Twitter has kicked off pilot testing of three new ad formats earlier this week. These formats include interactive text ads, product explorer ads, and collection ads. “As we kick off early experiments, we’ll aim to understand how the new formats resonate with consumers and drive results for advertisers. We’ll test, learn and iterate based on performance and customer feedback,” said Group Product Manager Madeline Bayer and Product Manager Lauren Nagra. Bud Light, Oreo, and Wendy’s are the other brands testing these ads. They are trying interactive text ads with a larger and bolder typeface. In such ads, advertisers can highlight up to three words in their ad copy which can bring the audience to a landing page when clicked. They can select from ten highlight colors. Bayer and Nagra wrote, “Not only will it be easier for these ads to catch the eye as people scroll through their timeline, but the highlighted words will offer a new way for consumers to engage with ad copy.” Bayer and Nagra wrote, “Not only will it be easier for these ads to catch the eye as people scroll through their timeline, but the highlighted words will offer a new way for consumers to engage with ad copy.” When it comes to product explorer ads, 3D comes into the mix for brands for the very first time. Consumers can rotate and swipe products to view them from different angles. If they want more information on the products, they can click on the ad’s shop button and go to the advertiser’s page. As for the collection ads, brands can display a primary hero image and five smaller thumbnail visuals. The primary image remains static when the users horizontally scroll through the thumbnails. Every image can lead the audience to different websites or landing pages. Only a handful of brands like Bose, Lexus, and New Balance in the U.S are testing these ads. Bayer and Nagra wrote, “Over the past two years, we’ve been working hard to simplify our ad suite, make our products more performant and measurable and give advertisers more options and new controls. As we look ahead, we see untapped potential to develop more creative and innovative ad formats that ultimately deliver results and value not just for advertisers, but also for consumers and creators.” They continued, “We see a future for Twitter ads where our products can: Give advertisers opportunities for more creative storytelling and brand expression across every stage of the funnel; offer consumers a more immersive, rewarding and interactive ad experience; and help advertisers further lean into and unlock the power of conversation on Twitter. You’ll see us experiment with ad formats that help us work toward these goals and bring this ad vision to life on Twitter.”

Meta Q1 2022 Earnings Call: Zuckerberg talks about the roadblocks

Meta | April 28, 2022

On its Q1 2022 earnings call Wednesday (April 27), Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg discussed the current roadblocks and the challenges ahead for the Metaverse and FB's ads business. Meta's first-quarter profits were $7.5 billion, a 21% decrease from the previous year. Revenue increased by 7% to $27.9 billion, the slowest growth rate since the business went public a decade ago. It has reduced its anticipated expense range for 2022 by $3 billion. While discussing the challenges, Zuckerberg mentioned how the short video format has remained far from monetization and recent IOS updates, including Apple's App Tracking Transparency, caused a loss of $10 billion in revenue. In addition, regulators have thwarted Zuckerberg's capacity to make significant, transformative social media acquisitions that may re-ignite growth. "I talked last quarter about some of the near-term challenges facing our business. Some are specific to Meta, like our transition to short-form video, which doesn't monetize as well for now but which we're quite optimistic about over the long term." -Mark Zuckerberg, CEO Meta. "I talked last quarter about some of the near-term challenges facing our business. Some are specific to Meta, like our transition to short-form video, which doesn't monetize as well for now but which we're quite optimistic about over the long term. Some are specific to our industry, like signal loss resulting from Apple's iOS changes, which is a meaningful headwind, but we also expect that with the right technology, investments will navigate OK over time. Other challenges are broader macro trends, like the softness in e-commerce after the acceleration we saw during the pandemic." Mark Zuckerberg, CEO Meta. Meta COO Sheryl Sandberg further addressed the challenges raised by the privacy regulations. "We're working with European regulators on these rules. They are largely in the range of what we were expecting, but the final text has not been released yet, and the details on this will matter. But overall, the regulatory environment is a real challenge for our industry. One, we think we are well set up to meet working closely with regulators and doing things in our technology like privacy-enhancing technologies to do more with less data." Sheryl Sandberg, Meta COO. Zuckerberg mentioned that Meta has prioritized strengthening AI infrastructure, business platform, and Reality Labs by making substantial investments in these areas. "However, based on the strong revenue growth that we saw in 2021, we kicked off a number of multiyear projects to accelerate some of our longer-term investments, especially in our AI infrastructure, business platform, and Reality Labs. These investments are going to be important for our success and growth over time, so I continue to believe that we should see them through." Zuckerberg said. Going further Meta's focus will be in the area of personalized advertising. Meta currently is working with advertisers to make the effective utilization of the new landscapes. "… .we're encouraging partners to integrate with our conversions API to create a direct, reliable, and privacy safe connection between their marketing data and Meta. And we've recently introduced a faster and easier way for SMBs to integrate with it called the Conversions API Gateway." While commenting more about how Meta is helping advertisers, Zuckerberg talked about streamlining the process by providing "better insights with less data is with conversion modelling", Zuckerberg added, "We're also helping businesses connect directly with customers and grow more on-site data conversions through products like click-to-message ads. This is where you click on an ad on your Facebook or Instagram feed and it opens a chat with the business in Messenger, Instagram Direct, or WhatsApp." Coming to Metaverse, Meta CEO is very dedicated to this behemoth of the project. Zuckerberg spends billions of dollars every year developing gadgets and software for the Metaverse, a notion he believes will one day be as large as the mobile internet. Meta's Reality Labs subsidiary, which manufactures the Quest VR headset and upcoming AR glasses, employs around 17,000 people and lost nearly $3 billion in the latest quarter alone. Horizon is one of the early players to get the taste of Metaverse and develop a gateway for the users. Meta is looking forward to launching a web version of Horizon, enabling users to enter the platform without using a VR headset.
