Google is looking to win back the trust of advertisers with some tougher regulations for its YouTube creators, including higher criteria for its YouTube Partner Program -- expanding beyond the 10,000 total views required to also demand 4,000 hours of viewing time in the past 12 months and at least 1,000 subscribers. "We will closely monitor signals like community strikes, spam, and other abuse flags to ensure they comply with our policies," writes Google's Paul Muret.

Campaigns that are integrated across channels are 31% better at building brands, and the strongest-performing channel combinations are Facebook and TV and TV and outdoor, Kantar Millward Brown reports. Campaigns that are customized and well-integrated are 57% more effective, but only 46% of campaigns studied exhibited both features.

Some advertising executives aren't bothered by Facebook's algorithm change to its news feed, having already given up on organic reach on the platform and instead invested in paid advertising, which will not be affected. "Those changes won't impact brands that purchase quality content, but will hit those who chase viral, meme-like posts," said Reshift Media's Steve Buors.
