Facebook says it is willing to break up the advertising Walled Garden – but it won't go it alone

Facebook and Google are often referred to as 'walled gardens' by advertisers since they typically restrict usage of their data by advertisers to their own platforms. On Thursday Facebook said it would be willing to bend on how some of its data is used in advertising campaigns outside of its own walls. The company said that such theoretical data sharing would have to be facilitated by a third party. And it wouldn't be willing to make such a move alone. Facebook said it's willing to knock down...

Facebook was already punishing publishers before it announced its big newsfeed change (FB)

Last month, Facebook announced its plans to deter the spread of fake news on the social network by prioritizing user generated content (think baby pictures) above professional content created by publishers.

As this chart by Statista, based on data from Shareaholic, shows, visits to websites that originated on Face...

A Facebook exec breaks down the 2 biggest misconceptions about landing a job at the tech giant

• Facebook jobs might seem unattainable, but you should still apply. • That's VP of HR Janelle Gale's advice for prospective candidates. • Facebook isn't looking for people with inside connections or educations from top schools, she said. • Gale said they're mostly looking for people who are going to be able to bring a lot of passion into their roles. Jobs at Facebook require a killer application. But that doesn't mean you should immediately disqualify yourself. The tech giant recently topped ...

People Are Already Getting Black Panther Tattoos, Because #WakandaForever

The nation of Wakanda may be fictional, but it's still etched into the hearts of millions. And as someone who's already seen it twice, I can say that the hype is more than justifiable. Among my many reasons for loving the film, I was most left in awe by the painstaking detail that went into every hair, makeup, and wardrobe decision — which all honored African heritage and traditions. The cast gave young people of color a shining example of representation, and another reason to stand taller, as ...

What is Ephemeral Content and What Can It Do for Your Business?

Ephemeral content is content that has a limited lifespan. Unlike a blog or a web page that stays up indefinitely, ephemeral content is usually up for 24 hours or less. For many marketers, this seems completely counter-intuitive. Traditional marketing has always focused on content that lasts and can be recirculated well into the future. However, with the popularity of Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook stories growing, marketing strategy needs to keep up with the changing times to remain effectiv...

Water-Gel Skin Care Is Almost As Essential As Actual Water

Water — maybe you've heard of it? — is vital for all known forms of life here on earth (which, by the way, is 71% water in and of itself), and yet we use its derivatives as a synonym for weak. Nobody ever asks for a watery cocktail or cup of coffee, and a "watered-down" version of something is just a gentle, passive-aggressive way of saying it's the same thing, but worse. But if it's run-of-the-mill moisturizers you find too strong for your liking — too rich, too heavy, too creamy — forget your...
