  • Industry groups take a stand against online ads on "rogue" sites
    The Association of National Advertisers and the American Association of Advertising Agencies said in a joint statement that the two organizations would take steps to see that member advertisers' media contracts contain language against selling to sites that violate copyrights or sell counterfeit goods. The statement, released during the International Anti-Counterfeiting Conference in Washington, D.C., was supported by the Interactive Advertising Bureau. "What we really liked about this approach is that it was a market solution," said Mike Zaneis, IAB senior vice president and general counsel. "The reality is that most ad networks already devote resources to trying to review their publisher partners, to make sure that they're not serving ads into illegitimate sites."

  • Facebook rolls out "Offers" ad platform nationwide
    Facebook announced that it is rolling out its "Offers" marketing platform nationwide after a test phase that included the likes of Macy's, Walgreen and Old Navy. Facebook has said that any business may use the self-service platform for free, without Facebook taking a cut of, for example, redeemed coupons, but would subsequently distribute ads to friends of coupon redeemers via their news feeds. Businesses can also pay to get a bigger play by buying Facebook Marketplace or Sponsored Stories units. ClickZ (5/3) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
