[Podcast] Marketing Land Live #38: Facebook’s measurement mistakes with Jeanne Bright of DigitasLBi
In this week's show, we talk about Facebook's continued struggle with measuring and reporting data related to ad campaigns, video views and more -- a "comedy of errors," as our special guest calls it -- and its impact on brands and publishers.
Facebook has suffered a significant black eye after three revelations in recent months that the company has been misreporting some of the metrics that publishers and advertisers use to figure out the success of their ad campaigns, native videos, Instant Articles and more. It’s creating a trust issue where advertisers and publishers are wondering what it’ll take to make sure Facebook’s future reporting is accurate and reliable.
Our special guest this week is Jeanne Bright — VP, Group Director and Paid Social Practice Lead at DigitasLBi, one of the biggest marketing and technology agencies in the world. They have a lot of big clients who spend a lot of money with Facebook, so it’ll be important for Facebook to listen to their concerns and make sure the metrics problems don’t continue. In this week’s show, Bright discusses the need for third-party verification of Facebook’s data and whether these problems will affect advertiser spending on Facebook.
