  • Could "Do Not Track" save the online ad business?
    Microsoft's controversial decision to turn on "Do Not Track" flagging on its new Internet Explorer browser by default is actually good news for online advertisers, writes Microsoft advertising executive Rik van der Kooi. The move will help brands to build trust by compelling them to explain how ads help support much of the Web, Van der Kooi explains. "By building trust and demonstrating real value -- serving ads when they are accretive to the consumer experience and not serving them when they aren't -- consumers will be willing to share more information with marketers and online services," he asserts.

  • How to reach pregnant women on Facebook
    Marketers think Facebook helps parenting brands target pregnant women based on their status updates, something the social network said it rarely, if ever, does. Facebook officials said mining status updates for targeting data is feasible, but it's usually possible to target demographics such as moms-to-be based on "likes" and social relationships, without needing to tap specific updates.

The revamp could streamline Twitter's application ecosystem and make it easier to find effective tools for outreach. "Marketers don't need as many options. They want something that works," Berkowitz says. ClickZ (9/10) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • Oreo wants to twist off a conversation a day for centennial
    Oreo is promoting a different cookie each day for 100 days as part of its centennial promotion. The "Daily Twist" campaign, from an agency team of Draftfcb New York, 360i, Weber Shandwick and MediaVest, is intended to spark social media conversation by inventing a cookie to match whatever is trending, rather than sticking to a prescribed schedule. "Whether it's entertainment, utility, inspiration or humor, we're always testing the value of the relevance to drive the most interactions and valuable conversations with Oreo fans," says 360i President Sarah Hofstetter.
