Facebook took a major step toward achieving its goals of making sure its users see advertising that is relevant to them — no matter which devices they are using, and even when they are not on the social network itself — and of allowing advertisers to be a part of the process both online and offline. The social network Monday officially introduced Atlas at Advertising Week 2014 in New York, confirming reports earlier this month by The Wall Street Journal and Ad Age.
After Ad Age broke the news last week that Facebook was revamping Atlas, formerly Atlas Solutions, the ad network Facebook acquired from Microsoft in February 2013, The Wall Street Journal uncovered more details Monday, speculating that an official announcement will come during Advertising Week 2014 in New York next week.
Facebook social marketing platform Nanigans Thursday announced the launch of a value-added reseller program, and its three launch partners are integrated digital marketing firm AMP Agency, data-driven digital agency Merkle, and real-time media-trading desk Varick Media Management.
Compass Labs, a Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer in ads and insights, announced Wednesday the launch of its newest product — The Social Advertising Optimizer — which will help marketers gain return on investment from Facebook marketing campaigns.
Whether you’re pro- or anti-Facebook, you certainly can’t accuse the social network of ignoring its issues. Continuing to hammer away at its potential shortfall in advertising revenue, Facebook will introduce a new service called Facebook Exchange, which will allow advertisers to bid in real-time for ads on the social network, according to reports.
