Pencil on Product Hunt

New signals

  • With eCommerce growth continuing, Shopify revenue increased up 57% in Q2 2021. According to the company, its revenues will continue to grow 'rapidly, but at a lower rate than in 2020'.
  • Geometric Energy Corporation (GEC), a Canadian startup, announced a partnership with SpaceX to launch an advertising satellite called CubeSat. Anyone can advertise on the space-ad satellite by buying a pixel with crypto.
  • Tide teams up with The Midnight Mission to open its first permanent Tide Loads of Hope Laundry Room in downtown Los Angeles, in an effort to help people experiencing homelessness. As P&G's larger purpose-driven efforts, the brand plans to promote these efforts through a video-on-demand platform as opposed to a traditional ad campaign.
  • FB quietly announced the end of its Advanced Mobile Measurement program on Friday in an email to advertisers. As of Oct 29, MMPs will only receive aggregated campaign data from Facebook instead of user-level data.
