据美国《纽约时报》援引三名知情人士消息报道，在乔治·索罗斯（George Soros）公开抨击Facebook之后，公司首席运营官雪莉·桑德伯格（Sheryl Sandberg）曾要求公司通讯部门员工调查索罗斯在抨击行为背后的经济利益。在一月份发出的邮件里，桑德伯格向通讯和政策的高级主管们提出这一要求。就在此前几天，索罗斯刚刚在世界经济论坛大会上公开指责Facebook和谷歌为“社会的威胁”并呼吁对这些公司采取监管措施。据悉，桑德伯格也参与了那次大会，但并未出席索罗斯的演讲。
The most obvious change is that the letters–“W” for Word, “X” for Excel, and so forth–have gotten smaller; Microsoft decided to play up the imagery that depicts what you can accomplish in its apps. In the past, those graphics were fairly literal and often looked like a tiny printout. Now, they consist of basic shapes in pure color and work less hard to be representational. But you can still make out the lines in a Word doc, the cells of an Excel spreadsheet, and the wedges in a PowerPoint pie chart.
On Nov. 27, the Post named Miki King its first-ever chief marketing officer. King, who had previously served as the news publisher’s vp of marketing, will be responsible for subscriber acquisition and retention efforts, as well as enterprise sales and a new national marketing effort, which will focus mostly on performance, rather than brand marketing. She will report to Fred Ryan, the Post’s publisher and CEO, who made the announcement to staffers late Tuesday.
King’s promotion adds the Post to a growing list of news publishers who have added a new kind of chief marketing role, one focused on driving consumer revenue rather than elevating the publisher brand in the eyes of advertisers and readers.
After this week, there is no doubt that WPP CEO Mark Read plans to fulfill his promise to bring a “radical evolution” to the biggest name in advertising.The news that J. Walter Thompson will merge with Wunderman is no less dramatic for being somewhat expected. To many industry observers, the only real unknown was which creative shop would join forces with WPP’s secret weapon to bring the one-two punch of digital and creative services to clients around the world.
During October’s Q3 earnings call, Read acknowledged that the quarter had been “tough” and said the company needed “to take decisive action and [adopt] more radical thinking” as Omnicom overtook the network in market value.
But as the next WPP leadership conference approaches on Dec. 11, a question remains: Will this action prove decisive enough?
Silicon Valley tech giant Intel has laid off all of the creative and production staffers at Agency Inside as it prepares to focus the in-house hub it launched about three years ago only on account services, according to Teresa Herd, vice president and global creative director at Intel.
Herd added that the company is reorganizing its in-house operations to focus on working more closely with external agency partners, cutting all creative and production staffers earlier this week. According to people with direct knowledge of the matter, those cuts amount to 30 to 50 employees. Those sources indicated that Intel will likely retire the Agency Inside name.
10、Ads.Txt For Apps Is Finally (Nearly) Ready For Primetime
After a protracted, year-long alpha period, the IAB Tech Lab has released the specs in beta for the app version of its Ads.txt initiative to reduce counterfeit ad inventory.
The App-ads.txt hold-up was caused by app stores dragging their heels on providing support for the Tech Lab’s preferred solution of using metadata tags – essentially the developer’s App Store ID – within app store pages to create links back to an app developer’s website URL.
11、YouTube Expands Stories
YouTube is expanding its Stories feature to all creators with over 10,000 followers. YouTube Stories launched last year as “Reels” and was only available to select creators. Now, in an effort to capture some of the traffic that its creators redirect to their Instagram Stories, the video platform is offering more users a way to engage with their audiences in the unpolished format that has become wildly popular on social media.
Facebook considered charging advertisers for access to user data between 2012 and 2014, in direct opposition to its business philosophy, according to previously redacted court documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Facebook has long denied that it sells user data, but internal emails reveal executives discussed doing exactly that, with one unidentified employee suggesting shutting down data access for apps that don’t spend at least $250,000 per year. “We were trying to figure out how to build a sustainable business,” a Facebook spokeswoman said. “We had a lot of internal conversations about how we could do this.” The documents come from a lawsuit filed against Facebook by app developer Six4Three in 2015, alleging anticompetitive data policies. British lawmaker Damian Collins plans to release the rest of the documents from the case next week.
