Your Weekly Pencil - May 25, 2021

New signals

  • Through “Live Shopping Fridays,” Facebook launches live-stream shopping events where brands like Sephora, Clinique, and more invite viewers to ask questions about products and make purchases in-stream.
  • According to the post-IDFA alliance, 16.8 to 36.5 percent of users who installed new apps chose to share their IDFA identifier by clicking on the “Allow” screen.
  • This week, Lyft launched its ‘How to Human’ ad campaign depicting people re-entering the world as vaccinations increase. The creative concept behind it stems from the category of “how-to” videos that are popular on YouTube, leveraging the feelings of consumers who may be out of practice with day-to-day activities like greeting a Lyft driver.
  • As part of its transparency efforts, Facebook has published its process for reviewing ads. The Facebook ad review system requires the application of all Ad Policies to all running ads so that it typically completes within 24 hours by relying on automated technology.
