Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence June 2012

The Cannes Cyber Lions showed why owned media is key and how not to simply add to the clutter of the web.

In digital advertising the big players battled hard, with Google opening AdWords to 300,000 apps via its AdMob integration, while preparing for the European rollout of its web TV service. Facebook launched a major ad push, creating deeper ties with Apple, Zynga and WordPress, scrapping 'credits' for local currencies and opening to third party ad platforms for first time. Twitter upped its game with its first TV commercial and curated hashtags for brands, while revealing it's mobile ad revenue have overtaken desktop PCs. Microsoft showcased its iPad rival 'Surface', but was forced into an embarrassing U-Turn on its proposed plans to make 'Do Not Track' the default option for its next IE browser, after much outcry from advertisers.

The were some major acquisitions this month, with Facebook buying a facial recognition firm, Salesforce buying Buddy Media and WPP snapping up AKQA.

This month we include a guide to Pinterest, Mary Meeker's 'State of the Web' presentation and the DMA's implications of the new EU cookie laws for email and mobile marketing. We also take a look at Social media SEO, with growing evidence that Facebook and Twitter now play a key role in determining Google search rankings. Full stories and charts below and on click through.

Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence May 2012

All eyes on Facebook this month: we have a round-up of the IPO, aggressive investor reaction, General Motors pulling their ads and the latest on share price. More important for marketers, we also have the new approaches for their ads, how the automated 'Premium Ad' system works, and the new mobile tools for fan pages.

Digital regulation came into the spotlight with the controversial EU cookie law, and then the UK last minute watering-down (video below). It's an approach we expect several other countries to copy - the U-turn saw the wording shift from 'explicit consent' to 'implied consent'.

Google's entry into the mobile device market completes, with the green light for its $12.5bn Motorola Mobility deal, and we show how Google+ was beefed-up with a 'Hangouts' webcam community.

Your data charts this month include top Apps, the true cost of a Facebook Sponsored Story, the (ridiculously complicated) social media landscape and as always full stories and videos on click, and a survey for what you'd like in next month's edition.

Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence April 2012

Industry themes we're tracking this month? The importance of innovation in your strategy: build it or buy it?

Instagram's $1bn price tag makes sense for Facebook's 'buy' strategy because it blocked Twitter, Google, Apple or MSN from leaping ahead.

In cloud storage, the trend seems to be to 'build' your own: April saw Google unveil a cloud storage service to undercut Dropbox, SkyDrive and iCloud. Our money is on Dropbox getting bought soon, as late entrants realise 'buy' will be the only option left.

Meanwhile in digital marketing, the choices grew further:

- Measuring brand campaigns? Google's new TV-style metrics could be the answer
- Needing new ad platforms? Tumblr finally opens up
- Approaches for tackling Pinterest? Amazon and eBay's social shopping tools just started pinning

This month's Digital Intelligence includes data on: top Facebook brands in the UK, Asia overtaking the west for online video, China's internet growth, and which days of the week work best on social.

As always full stories at the end of the click, and a great video of Google's 'goggles' - the planned augmented reality glasses straight from a sci-fi film.
