Welcome Back,
Last week I was looking forward to reading the reviews of all of the cool new toys from CES when Mark Zuckerberg announced that the FB newsfeed will now emphasize person-to-person interactions instead of posts from businesses, brands and media. In case you missed it you can read it here (http://bit.ly/2mvtKHg)
I’ve read several posts that analyze Zuckerberg’s statement and I have included one of the best below. FB’s announcements are always a little vague. If you are reading this newsletter then you are already wondering how your FB marketing efforts will be affected. The company has always emphasized person-to-person interaction but we don’t know how much organic reach will be impacted by this latest change. Time will tell, but one thing is for sure: With fewer ads in the newsfeed and a shrinking organic reach, the price of ads will continue to increase. To quote Marlo Stanfield from the Wire, “The price of the brick goin’ up.”
This edition of the newsletter has articles about Alexa, Digital Asset Management and some new tools from Google. If you have the time be sure to watch the video of the CMO panel from CES. Anytime you have the CMO’s from Deloitte, Mastercard, Turner Broadcasting and Panasonic NA on a panel it’s going to be a lively discussion.
Enjoy and we’ll be back next week.
