Inside The Fight Against Sexism On The Oscars Red Carpet

Inside The Fight Against Sexism On The Oscars Red Carpet | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, an organization devoted to encouraging self-esteem in young girls (“change the world by being yourself” is their very Leslie Knope-like motto) joined in for this year’s Golden Globes — the obvious tie-in being that Poehler co-hosted with Tina Fey — and spread the hashtag through their own accounts. It was a hit with their audience, so Smart Girls continued with the SAG Awards and the Grammys. According Alee-a Blanco, social media director of Smarts Girls, from January 19, the week after the Golden Globes, to today, there have been 2.5 million impressions of #AskHerMore across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Facebook Combines Atlas, Audience Network, And LiveRail Into An AdTech Voltron

Facebook Combines Atlas, Audience Network, And LiveRail Into An AdTech Voltron | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Facebook’s plot for ad domination is coming to fruition. Today at Facebook headquarters, its ad execs explained how two years of seemingly isolated launches and acquisitions are melding into a powerful way to show ads across the Internet and track the purchases they inspire both online and offline.

Here’s how the pieces come together:

Facebook brings its 1.35 billion users and massive engagement with the News Feed where it shows its ads. Because its huge user base stays logged in across web and mobile, it has a unified understanding of people’s identities in a way most platforms don’t. Facebook’s wealth of personal data means it can target ads more accurately. For instance, it says it can target gender with 90 percent accuracy compared to the online ad industry average of 50 percent.

2015 Will See The Rise Of Dark Social

2015 Will See The Rise Of Dark Social | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
SnapChat, another ephemeral application, is the fastest-growing social app heading into 2015. With a user base 100 million active users, 60% of whom engage with the app 22 times per day, Snapchat represents another dark social platform that should be considered in 2015. This is especially true with the upcoming strategic partnership model that will incorporate multiple media outlets into the platform. This will convert the experience to include more content from external networks and publishing partners.

wow

Darkness.com ☥'s curator insight, February 19, 4:19 AM

Wow. Just wow. The physical representation of the Marvel universe's characters... is absolutely breathtaking. Visually, it's just... wow. I know, but hell, is there any other word for it? Graphed out, it actually looks like a Universe; or well, a Miniverse, --the complexity of the Universe itself is infinite, the complexity of the Marvel Universe is finite, --and this is just one of the stunning graphics you can see on the source.


Some of the other visual graphics for the Marvel universe are multicolored, but... phew. I want this in my house. Like, as a giant mural, covering one wall; do you think if it was blown up against one big wall, you could see all the characters and names? All their relationships? My ex-husband would stare at something like that for hours, and most likely, go into serious nerd overload. He might even have a seizure. The Marvel universe is... beautiful.
