Facebook’s newsfeed update… what does it mean?

Content created by brands and publishers will now be shown less, while content from your friends and family will take priority within the Facebook newsfeed.

The competition was tough and some serious gaming was had but our winner came in the form of James Harrison, with an amazing score of 526,350!

“The game was a welcome distraction at the end of a busy year for Redrow and I was thrilled to come top of the leaderboard after quite a bit of competition from colleagues and […]

Be prepared for ‘data privacy backlash’ in 2018

News reports last week include some problematic stories for the media industry. ‘Advertisers use Google phone apps to eavesdrop on TV viewers’, The Independent and ‘Hundreds of smartphone apps are monitoring users through their microphones’ The Independent. Or perhaps most worryingly, ‘Some mobile games are listening to what children watch’ Engadget.

The original source of this troubling news item is a recent New York Times story, concerning American software company Alphonso whose solution is used […]

The top five things I learnt at Facebook’s Blueprint Live Event

A few weeks back I was fortunate enough to be invited to Facebook’s Blueprint Live at their HQ in London.

The day comprised a series of interactive exercises designed to bring a hypothetical client brief to life, in the form of a full-funnel campaign plan across Facebook and Instagram.

It was a fantastic day working with like-minded Facebook specialists from agencies across different industries, and full of valuable information, hints, tips and best practices. Although there […]

We were wined and dined in style whilst learning more about the fascinating history of the prestigious Condé Nast publishing house. Although some details of this business and its heritage are well known, there were several fascinating nuggets revealed on the day which were news to even the most fashion-fascinated among us.

Awards Success

Amid the glitter, glamour and evening wear of the Marriott Grosvenor Square last night, the winners of the 2017 Drum Network Awards were announced. The great and the good, and some others, gathered to celebrate another year of growth, innovation and strong work across our sector.

Falling just a month after the agency’s strong showing at the DADIs and following a cheerful couple of years of award collections, expectations were high for another gong for […]

What did yesterday’s budget mean for the property sector?

When reflecting on the Autumn Budget, the temptation merely to rehash the contents of the announcement is compelling. However it’s an unavoidable and unsurprising fact that I couldn’t interpret Mr Hammond’s speech or its many potential consequences more effectively than the media reports that you are every bit as capable of finding and reading as I am.

But there remain some areas in which we can add insight. By now we all know what changes […]

Does out of home build trust for brands?
