Ahead of the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, ClickZ sat down with Michael Lebowitz, chief executive of Big Spaceship and member of the Interactive Advertising Board, to discuss his vision on the future of advertising in wearable devices such as Google Glass.
Leveraging context and data-driven insights will be the only way to go as users will have no tolerance on display ads overlayed on their vision: more than ever, user experience and user-centered approaches will be the key. Privacy levels need to be fully controlled by the wearer, i.e. user, and s/he will also decide all the parameters that will apply to ads s/he’ll tolerate.
There is no other option – unless of course, ads are just taken out of the equation. But that would be a hard stop for the industry. Strangely enough, Lebowitz starts by saying he hopes there will be no ads on wearable devices. Watch his arguments:
Facebook isn't just the world's largest social network. In the past two years, it has also become one of the world's most popular online destinations for consuming video content.
In 2015, Verizon purchased AOL for $4.4 billion. Now, the mega wireless carrier is leveraging its wireless network as part of a new ad offering called BrandBuilder by AOL.
As the ball drops on December 31st, make sure your media strategies are stacked with timely resolutions to make the most of 2017.
