Apple's privacy features in Safari are shaking up the advertising market
Two years ago, Apple unveiled Intelligent Tracking Prevention for Safari which aimed to protect users of the browsers from unwanted tracking. It was yet another in a long-running move towards more privacy on behalf of the company for its customers, and this technology, in particular, seems to be having a major impact on the advertising industry. In a report by The Information, executives within the online publishing industry have said that the technology has been "stunningly effective" at preventing companies from identifying users' behavior across the web. One executive says that it has led to a devaluing of Safari users. On the other hand, it has also created somewhat of a discount market for those who want to save on advertising, as long as buyers are okay with the data being less precise. The Information reports that the cost of reaching a Safari user has dropped as much as 60% while Chrome users continue to get more expensive.

Comscore Launches New Brand Suitability Protections That Offer Brands Greater Precision to Determine What Content Is Safe and Contextually Relevant

Comscore | September 14, 2020

Comscore (Nasdaq: SCOR), a trusted partner for planning, transacting and evaluating media, today announced enhanced brand suitability protections that offer brands greater precision to determine what content is safe and contextually relevant. The segments, which are now available in many leading demand-side platforms, will put the control back in the advertiser's hands to be able to run their ad campaigns along content that is brand safe for them without sacrificing scale. Most brand safety offerings currently available take a binary, keyword-based approach to determining whether a piece of content is brand safe. These basic tools lack the sophistication needed to effectively navigate today's media and content landscape, such as differentiating between actual acts of hate speech and informative content on occurrences of hate speech. In contrast, Comscore utilizes a proprietary pattern-profiling technology that understands the true essence of an article. These unique features give brands far more nuance than what keyword-based solutions can deliver, resulting in safer and more effective advertising. With Comscore's solution, brands will be able to do better than basic keyword blocking and will be able to make the decisions that best fit their brand without having to wipe out large swaths of inventory, like avoiding all news content.
