Facebook bans misleading posts and ads about US census

cnet | December 19, 2019

Facebook is banning misleading posts and ads that aim to prevent people from participating in the 2020 US census. The social media giant, which has been under fire for not fact-checking ads from politicians, said Thursday that the new rules also cover politicians who try to suppress census participation. Facebook users will be barred from misrepresenting when, where and how to participate in the census. The company also won't allow ads that portray census participation as "useless or meaningless." The census, which takes place every 10 years, helps determine which states and communities get billions of dollars in federal funding and the number of seats each state gets in Congress.

MEDIASMART | October 27, 2020

mediasmart, Affle's self-serve mobile programmatic platform, today announced the launch of its Audience Targeting & Household Sync technology on Connected TV (CTV). Though programmatic CTV ads have been available on mediasmart for sometime, this new technology now enables brands to make CTV ads more engaging by syncing CTV ad campaigns with ads on other connected devices in the same household. They can thus make their CTV ads significantly more relevant by personalizing them for specific audiences within the household. Commenting on this significant new launch, Noelia Amoedo, CEO of mediasmart said: "Programmatic ad spend on video is projected to go from 10% to 50% by 2021 with CTV expected to be over 15% of that spend. Consumption of content on CTV is growing dramatically across the world as consumers are increasingly becoming cord cutters and preferring CTV over traditional linear TV experiences.

Colorado Companies Bounce Back Amid Pandemic by Leveraging the Power of Digital Advertising

AdCellerant | October 07, 2020

While many businesses have closed their doors or continue to struggle, some Colorado companies have been able to thrive during the economic downturn by leveraging the power of digital advertising, technology, and education. Several local media companies were able to educate and advise their advertising clients on strategy and execution, by leveraging support from their technology and service provider AdCellerant. These media companies helped their advertisers regain lost revenue from the COVID pandemic, and in some cases, generate more business than pre-COVID. Their efforts included hosting free educational webinars showcasing the power of digital advertising during a pandemic, providing targeted plans and guides for specific industries focused on recovery, and research focused on industry shifts/changes to stay in front of local customers when it mattered most. In-person events have essentially become extinct in Colorado due to COVID. The dramatic end caused by Social Distancing guidelines have left many event related businesses without a clear path forward. Unframed Digital, leveraging AdCellerant Digital Services, helped a local arts festival shift their event completely online. Unframed Digital helped by targeting over 200,000 people's mobile devices, promoting the now "online" event, leading to a huge boost in website traffic as well as generating a new online revenue stream for everyone involved. The festival was able to recoup business that would have otherwise been completely lost due to the pandemic.
