The last 48 hours has brought numerous reports of new job losses in the digital marketing/media sector, and so we've updated our layoff tracker. The biggest news was Yahoo's decision to cut at least 10 percent (roundabout 1,400) global positions this quarter. Others followed yesterday: Experian Interactive/LowerMyBills, Mania TV, Permission TV, and Imeem are all shedding employees. You can find more information on the layoff tracker page.
Additionally, the DMA is thinning its executive ranks, partly owing to the glut of conferences in the digital ad space, reports Direct.
