Is Privacy Dead? Why Internet Giants Store Your Data (& What Marketers Need to Do Differently)

By: Stacy Willis April 2nd, 2018

I think we are all well-aware that Google, Facebook and every other service we use on the internet is collecting data on us. At this point, it should come as no surprise to anyone, but nevertheless, I’m always incredibly surprised to see how people react when they are confronted with the scale and scope of the data that is housed and collected by some of our favorite internet giants.

Oh, SNAP: What Kylie Jenner Taught Us About Negative Influencer Marketing

By: Ramona Sukhraj February 26th, 2018

In the 90s, everyone wanted "The Rachel" because of Jennifer Aniston on Friends. When my mother was growing up, she wanted waist-length locks because that's what graced the covers of Bollywood magazines.  Times may have changed, but the effect of influencers on consumer behavior has not.  Love or hate her, Kylie Jenner is one such powerful influencer and a financial force to be reckoned with. At just 20 years old, Kylie is not only the youngest, but also the richest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan with a $386 million cosmetic line under her belt and a net-worth estimated to hit $1 billion before she turns 25. If that’s not impressive enough, last week, a single tweet from the beauty mogul is believed to have caused Snapchat parent company, Snap Inc.’s stock (SNAP) to drop a dramatic $1.3 billion in value. Now, if that doesn’t make you sit up and pay attention to influencer marketing, I don’t know what will.

Facebook is an entirely different beast than it was back in 2004. From Harvard students only, to "the wall" that then turned into "the timeline", to the introduction of Facebook ads, the social network has seen some major renovations over the years. While Facebook is set to celebrate their 10th birthday this upcoming Tuesday, they've decided to give us all a present to commemorate a decade of innovation.

The New “Jelly” App is Your Answer for Everything

By: Carly Stec January 8th, 2014

Blog Feature

We all know how the standard search engine works. In typical Q&A fashion, you plug in a few keywords or a question, and it spits back a bunch of pages containing answers to your inquiry. The creators of the social search app, Jelly, have taken this concept and transformed it into something a bit more... social. Derived from the creative mind of Twitter co-founder, Biz Stone, the Jelly app was founded in April of last year, however it officially launched just yesterday. In an attempt to make traditional search a bit more human, this new app calls upon your social network contacts to drum up an answer for just about any question you can think of. So how does it work? And what does it mean for marketers?

Cleverly designed to coincide with the "artsy" environment, brands like Levis have managed to release ads onto the photo-sharing platform without interrupting the user experience.  While the ads are subtle, it appears that they have proven their ability to pack a mean punch in terms of reach, ad recall, and awareness.
