FACEBOOK LAUNCHES AD CONTROL FOR ADVERTISERS, ANNOUNCES THIRD PARTY PARTNERSHIPS TO IMPROVE MEASUREMENT


Facebook is making changes to its platform in order to provide more clarity and control for advertisers over where advertising appears and the kind of content that can be monetized. This announcement was made at Dmexco which had a host of its senior executives including COO Sheryl Sandberg in attendance.
 
Caroline Everson, Facebook’s VP of global marketing solutions, while making this announcement, unveiled some of the changes that will apply to the content types that can be monetized around Facebook’s in-stream ads and Instant Articles feature. The new brand safety tools, partnerships and monetization eligibility standards and guidelines being introduced by Facebook is to allay marketers’ fears over brand safety, measurement, and viewability on its platform.
 
Facebook will also begin to roll out pre-campaign publisher lists, and this tool will give advertisers a preview of partners using Instant Articles and in-stream videos on Facebook as well as publishers monetizing their sites and apps via Audience Network. Brands will also be able to see the exact places where their ads ran after campaigns. This pre and post campaign reporting system being provided by Facebook will help brands exercise greater control over where their content appears.
 
“We’re introducing new monetization eligibility standards that will provide clearer guidance around the types of publishers and creators eligible to earn money on Facebook and the kind of content that can be monetized. These standards will apply to ad placements where context could matter, including in-stream ads and Instant Articles,” Everson stated.
 
“Because brands also want to know where their ads are delivered, we’re also announcing that in the coming months we will begin providing advertisers with post-campaign reporting that clearly identifies the publishers that their ads ran on across Instant Articles, in-stream ads and Audience Network. Together, these standards and tools will give advertisers the clarity and control they need to run their campaigns,” she added.
 
To also improve measurement of ad performance, Facebook is seeking accreditation from Media Ratings Council, the US-based non-profit industry organization that will review and accredit its measurement services in three key areas: first-party served ad impression reporting, third-party viewability partner integrations, and upon launch, its new two-second video buying option.  
 
Facebook already works with 24 partners including Oracle Data Cloud, Nielsen, Kantar Millward Brown, on ad measurement and is also in the process of adding two ad tech companies: Double Verify and Meetrics to help improve brand safety controls.
 
To combat fraud on its community, it is in the process of joining the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) ‘Certified Against Fraud’ program as it moves to embrace industry efforts to improve advertisement measurement.  It has also added 3,000 more content reviewers to its team to report content violating community standards.
 
Facebook is showing its commitment to building a more brand-safe digital ecosystem through these changes.

KURT ANGLE REVEALED AS JASON JORDAN'S BIOLOGICAL FATHER #WWE

If you watched raw tonight, you were probably just as shocked as we were when Kurt Angle (Raw's manager) revealed that Jason Jordan is his son. So, it appears that Kurt had a love affair with a black woman years (and years ago). The love affair resulted in the birth of a son, who was given up for adoption. Kurt never knew that the woman was pregnant with his baby. He only just found out that the one whom he knew in the wrestling world was actually his flesh and blood.

The father and son had an emotional moment in the ring tonight.

HOW TO DETECT A PHISHING EMAIL

Phishing email messages and online portals are designed to steal people's money. Cyber thieves
design these messages and websites in order to steal your personal information or install a malicious software on your computer. Most of these messages come from an unofficial from address, link to a fake website and often require an urgent action from you.

Phishing emails are more rampant than ever before and some cyber thieves have mastered the art of making the email look legitimate. Just because an email has convincing brand logos, language, and a seemingly valid email address, does not mean that it’s legitimate.





On average, I receive about 3 - 4 phishing emails (per month) from cyber thieves posing as a Nigerian banking institution. I usually report the email as spam. Sometimes, I send the sender a nasty email response. Today, I received an email from another cyber thief posing as GTB, so I decided to write this post. There are numerous ways to detect a phishing scam/email, but here are some important tips...





What is a phishing scam?

A phishing scam is an attempt by scammers to trick you into giving out personal information i.e. your bank account numbers, passwords and credit card numbers.





What does a phishing email look like?

Here is an example of what a phishing email looks like.






HOW CAN I DETECT A PHISHING EMAIL?



Do not trust the header or display name - A common tactic used by phishers is to spoof the display name and header. They use graphics connected to the legitimate website. Some also use a web address similar to a popular company, but slightly altered. Always check the FROM address to make it's legitimate. The address in this screenshot is not legitimate as you can see. The cyber thief in this screenshot used GTB's email as his/her name. But, the email then shows @centurytel.net. No institution will send business emails from a personal email address.

 


Beware of malicious attachments  - Do not click on any attachment in the email; the attachments often contain viruses that will damage your computer.



Beware of hyperlinks - Hover but don't click - Rest your mouse (but do not click) on the link to see if the web address matches the link that was typed in the message. In the example below, the link reveals the real web address, as shown in the box with the yellow background.



Beware of threatening language - The messages often invoke a sense of urgency. Have you ever received a message that your account has been suspended or that that your account would be closed/charged if you do not respond?

 
Beware of spelling errors & bad grammar -  Legitimate messages usually do not have major spelling mistakes or poor grammar. Read your emails carefully and report anything that seems suspicious.
