  • Facebook Reports Best Ad Quarter In Two Years, Says Apple Now Among Its 'Biggest Competitors' by Joe Mandese (MediaDailyNews on 01/28/2021)

    Hi, Joe -- Is the chart from BMO Capital Markets backwards?  From the FB earnings call for Q3: "In Q3, the total number of ad impressions served across our services increased 35% and the average price per ad decreased 9%."   You say the opposite in your article above "Despite a 9% decrease in the supply of its advertising impressions, Facebook delivered its best ad revenue quarter in more than two years, thanks to strong demand from premium advertisers and a surge in its average ad prices (+35%)"From the FB Q4 earnings call this week: "In Q4, the total number of ad impressions served across our services increased 25% and the average price per ad increased 5%."  The BMO Capital Markets graph shows this the other way around.

  • Startup Pays Consumers To Look At Ads, Finds Supply Outstrips Demand by Joe Mandese (RTBlog on 09/24/2018)

    Joe -- I think you got the headline backwards.  Susan says“Right now, we’re still challenged to bring five to 10 [engagements] to our audience each week,” she explains, adding: “They’re saying they want 70 to 80.”So demand is outstripping supply -- not vice versa
