Why Salesforce might be interested in Twitter

A person is seen using the Twitter app on a tablet.  Rumors were flying all day yesterday that Twitter is up for sale, and Salesforce.com could be a chief suitor. At this point, with so many possible bidders being reported, it’s hard to know what’s going to happen (if anything). But the big question for many is why Salesforce would even be interested in the consumer-facing social network. While nobody could say with certainty that… Read More

Facebook’s video metrics screw-up, explained

Facebook miscalculated how it was measuring average watch time on its platform. Agencies claim it’s not affected how they conduct business because they trade based on performance metrics like impressions, 10-second views and completed views -- not average watch time. That said, agencies and publishers are upset, with this being the latest signal that the “walled gardens” of Facebook and Google need to be more accepting of universal third-party measurement.

Yahoo’s data breach further dents its already flailing brand

With Yahoo’s massive data breach affecting at least 500 million accounts, the one-time internet star’s brand has been dealt yet another blow. The past couple of years have been particularly turbulent for Yahoo, which has struggled to maintain authority and relevance in a rapidly evolving market. Once the go-to destination for everyone on the internet, it has since been overtaken by the likes of Google and Facebook. While it still has more than a billion monthly active users, its revenues have been falling and were down 20 percent in 2016’s second quarter. The data breach comes on the heels of the former tech giant’s acquisition by Verizon, and further adds to its already flailing brand narrative, fraught with tales of squandered opportunities and mismanagement. It also affects Yahoo Mail, which is the third biggest email service in the world and one of its most valued assets.

Best of the week: Skittles and the dark side of going viral

Skittles handles a controversy on Twitter with a refreshing amount of grace and thoughtfulness; Nick Denton says news is being carried by entertainment; a former viral publishing exec exposes how these publishers still use “dark arts” like buying fake audiences to build their so-called communities on social platforms; and smaller publishers like The Information and The Correspondent show that it’s possible to stay small, focused and get people to pay for good content.
