Our Brand Strategy director Jordan Delapoer shared these screenshots with us this week. Really interesting example from Zappos about transparency with retargeted ads.
Today I noticed that all their ads include a little red X. When clicked you’re given the option to opt-out of their behaviorally targeted advertising, provide feedback, or learn more.
I chose learn more and it gives an explanation of how their technology works, why they use it, and how they think it provides a more relevant consumer shopping experience.
I can’t imagine the average consumer will do any of this investigating. More than anything, I think it’s an interesting example of what seems like a company (completely built on the idea of excellent customer service) wrestling with it’s own POV on the role of banner advertising.
Today, we’re excited to share some changes we’ve made to the Twitter Ads center. Based on feedback from our advertisers, we’ve created a revamped experience that improves campaign reporting, provides more visibility into campaign performance, analytics and spend, and also makes it easier to manage campaigns in real time.

The feature announced at Mobile DevCon 2013 yesterday relies on Custom Audiences, a tool built by Facebook to help marketers find new customers among Facebook’s existing userbase.
“Using email addresses, phone numbers, Facebook user IDs or app user ID’s to make the match, you can now find the exact people you want to talk to, in custom audiences that are defined by what you already know,” aguide on the Facebook website reads.
Previously, the only way to find out whether a photo of you was uploaded to Instagram was to crawl through your activity feed, hoping someone had mentioned your username in a caption (i.e., @laureni). Likewise, there’s been no easy way to share a photo someone uploaded of you to your own followers; oftentimes, I see friends share screenshots of another user’s photo that they appear in, captioned with the hashtag #regram.
