Facebook Is Going To Ruin Your News Feed With Auto-Playing Video Ads

Facebook Is Going To Ruin Your News Feed With Auto-Playing Video Ads | Video Shopping | Scoop.it

In Facebook's quest to generate more revenue, it's going to muck up your News Feed with auto-playing videos, the FT reports.

 

Facebook is set to launch video advertising in its newsfeed in July...

Mr Branson's insight:

It will be interesting to see if Facebook or facebookers can make video and chat work? I don't think so. The business model of Facebook has always been 'social' interaction and now asking facebookers to watch video instead of chat or gossip may turn the tide for Facebook.

Sage Osterfeld's curator insight, May 8, 2013 11:45 AM

Facebook taking a queue from porn sites. Great.

 

Is there anything more annoying that an autoplaying ad that you don't care about ruining whatever it is you're doing? Every time I run across one, it's usually below the scroll where I can see it so I'm like, "where the hell is that noise coming from?" (Then I scroll down and find the ad playing, right click on it and use my Ad Block plugin to keep that server from ever showing me an ad again.)

 

Elliottsweb's curator insight, May 23, 2013 10:49 AM

Oh no! Not more auto-playing ads!

On its surface, the app economy has led smartphone owners to an era of wanting for nothing. Lost? Download one of hundreds of map apps for the quickest route to Point B. Lonely? A treasure trove of apps can point you toward nearby singles, teach you a few pick-up lines then book movie tickets and restaurant reservations for the first date. All access, all seemingly complementary. Beneath the user-friendly interfaces, apps are quietly collecting payment for their services. Whether it’s identifying your location, a backdoor entrance to your address books or a glimpse inside your smartphone camera, apps and the third-party companies that have paid their way into the app’s infrastructure are stockpiling personal information to create individual consumer portraits designed to bring advertisers

Inside Apple's Top Secret Apple Watch Fitness Lab

Inside Apple's Top Secret Apple Watch Fitness Lab | Video Shopping | Scoop.it

Apple, known for keeping its product developments under the strictest of lock-and-key, gave ABC News exclusive access into its top secret health and fitness lab, where only Apple employees became test subjects for the new Apple Watch.

 

Apple engineers, managers and developers have been secretly volunteering for the past year in this state-of-the-art lab to participate in rowing, running, yoga and many more fitness activities in order to collect data for the Apple Watch’s inner workings.

 

“[The employees] knew they were testing something, but they didn't know it was for the Apple Watch,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s senior vice president of operations. “We hooked them up with all the masks and so forth, but we would put on an Apple Watch covered up.”
