Maja Martin, DMG, director of marketing, discusses what Facebook’s influencers’ patent means for marketers.
I suspect we all have a select group of friends that seem to appear disproportionately on our Facebook feeds. Their updates garner dozens of likes and the content they post gets plenty of shares and comments. Clearly the creative minds at Facebook have taken note of these influential users and have been busy working out what value their activity can bring to the company. The answer came [...]
Declan Kennedy, StitcherAds, CEO, a Facebook Marketing Partner recounts his experiences as one of the first Facebook Marketing Partners to integrate Facebook Product Ads.
The announcement last week from Facebook on its new Product Ads has certainly added fuel to the proverbial fire that is raging between media commentators on who will dominate the future of online retail advertising: Facebook or Google. The fact is, given the scale of Facebook’s user base, and its growing dominance of both mobile display and desktop [...]
Mobile World Congress has arrived, with the mobile industry’s biggest names all headed off to Barcelona. The event is still largely the domain of ‘legacy’ businesses from the sector. Barring a few exceptions, mobile advertising is a minority interest at the show. ExchangeWire examines efforts to increase the profile of the advertising industry at the show.
The 2015 installment of the event is barely a morning old, and the industry’s largest device manufacturers (Samsung, LG and Huawei) have [...]

Gareth Davies, AdBrain, CEO, and ExchangeWire columnist, reflects on some of the latest quarterly results from some of the digital advertising industry’s biggest names, and explores what they tell us about the contemporary ad tech landscape.
The industry’s biggest names have released their latest quarterly earnings, and the ad/martech land is collectively scratching its head wondering what it all means?
The universally welcome answer to that question is that tech is officially hot! We need only look at Apple, which recently announced [...]
Chris Bourke, Qriously, commercial director, EMEA, asks if ‘opinion leaders’ responsible for positively spreading information about programmatic advertising have delivered on their self-appointed brief.
Everett Rogers famously argues that diffusion is the process by which an innovation is communicated over time among the participants in a social system. He stressed the importance of opinion leaders – those high in socio-economic status and cosmopolitan nature – as critical in spreading information about an innovation.
So let’s take a look at what [...]
The Echo Chamber is a regular column, penned by Ciaran O’Kane, on all things ad tech, mar tech and programmatic
Advertising technology is the blood and guts of content monetisation on the internet. For most, it is unglamorous and bereft of the perceived sexiness of high-level agency machinations – the antithesis to the celebrity-type news cannon fodder that permeates the mainstream trades.
