  • This is great information. I think however that charity will drive the future of noninvasive advertising. Knowing what people like today as well as what they will like in the future is the key. We reward individuals and their charities for feedback on ads which perfectly match what they are talking about in media channels. We have a presentation if interested.

This is the first time a major brand is using deep social meta data to create insights to deliver better products to their customers. AMEX customers link up their cards and based on their social interests - AMEX extends the play of their brand to offer deeper, more relevant brand connections. How the case study goes in the scheme of success or not remains to be seen. AmEx’s new application, “Link, Like, Love,” uses a cardholder’s Facebook interests, including “likes” and “check-ins” in order to offer only the most relevant and convenient discounts. Again, it is about the free sharing of information. In this case, users are OPEN about what they’re interested in, and American Express’s interests are best served when they give their customers the BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE. This includes harnessing all the DATA AVAILABLE.August 11, 2011 (Updated Nov. 16, 2011)#financial #regulated#facebook#innovate #learn#jon #jaimy#DCJ

The future of social is advertising; aggregate and analyze social data to determine paid and owned content.© 2012 Altimeter Group
