  • Facebook To Start Rotating Ads On Static Pages

    Since the botched IPO, Facebook has been working feverishly on creating enhanced ad offerings. According to Clickz, the most traditional form of Facebook ads will be adding rotation to the mix. Currently ads are static on a page and aren’t swapped out until the user hits a different page. This makes quite a bit of [...]

  • Marketing Biz: Twitter’s Pitch, Vevo’s Warning & Bitly’s Disrespect

    This week in marketing felt a bit like a lesson in evolutionary biology. Things are changing fast. The lion is chasing down the ailing antelope on the digital plain.

To make it [...]

  • Buried: Digg Bought By Betaworks For A Fraction Of Its Former Value

    It feels like MySpace all over again. Seems like just yesterday Google was about to buy the hot-shot Digg for a reported $200 million dollars. But nay, today the NY-based tech firm Betaworks is purchasing the fallen giant for a meager $500,000.
