As you may have read, video has become the preferred form of content that consumers want to see from brands on social. But not all video is created equal - consumers also have different expectations for video, across different platforms.

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.

Mobile Advertising Platform Mintegral Supports SKAdNetwork, Apple's Official Attribution Solution

Mintegral | November 10, 2020

Mobile advertising platform Mintegral has announced that it now supports SKAdNetwork, Apple's official attribution solution, becoming one of the first mobile ad platforms in China to do so. Publishers and developers partnered with Mintegral can still get accurate installation attribution through SKAdNetwork, even after Apple deprecates IDFA. In June this year, Apple announced several new user privacy features at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), one of which was that starting with iOS 14, app developers will need to obtain explicit user consent before they can access the Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA). The news drew significant reactions from the entire mobile advertising ecosystem. IDFA is a random identifier assigned by Apple to individual devices, just like Google's GAID, which allows advertisers to target and track users' behavior more accurately to measure the effectiveness of their ads and help them decide how to better allocate their advertising budgets. From IDFA being enabled by default, to requiring user consent for iOS 14, Apple's move in its current format is bound to greatly increase the likelihood of users disabling IDFA. Although Apple has delayed its planned privacy changes to IDFA, targeted advertising effectiveness is projected to decrease in the foreseeable future. As a result, an increasing number of mobile advertising platforms are looking for alternative solutions, with SKAdNetwork being generally considered as one of the more optimal alternatives.
