  • GQ feature allows for personalized iPad edition, ad sharing
    GQ Magazine is offering subscribers of its iPad edition a MyGQ feature that allows for content personalization and ad sharing. Instead of allowing advertisers to add a link to their ads for free, as other publishers do, "Conde Nast charges $5,000 for the privilege," writes Lucia Moses. "Until now, GQ has been selling five to seven links per issue, and the hope is that more advertisers will buy them, knowing there's the possibility that users might disseminate the ads to their social networks."
