According to a survey, 71% of Gen Z adults in the US are likely to make a purchase directly through Instagram.
Gen Z prefers to spend their time on TikTok, but they spend their money on Instagram.
Meta (formerly Facebook) is investing more in its ad business on Reels rather than social commerce.
TikTok is quadrupling its global e-commerce sales to $20 billion per year through TikTok Shop.
Adults below the age of 25 spend an average of 58 minutes per day on TikTok, compared to Instagram.
Have you seen Extraction 2 yet? It’s really good. Like, really good. 💥
How It Works:
Netflix has created a billboard for the movie Extraction 2 featuring a large picture of Chris Hemsworth's face.
The billboard has laser holes in Hemsworth's forehead that allow water to be pumped through them to simulate sweat.
The interactive billboard has garnered attention across social media with posts showing people reaching out to touch Hemsworth's sweating face.
Extraction 2 has such intense action scenes that Chris Hemsworth is even sweating on the billboards!

“It’s like being in a candy shop!”
Said no one ever about a toilet paper campaign…until now.
5 Key Points:
Main Street El Dorado is implementing a new location intelligence and foot traffic software program to track attendance for its events.
The funding for the program was provided by the El Dorado Advertising and Promotion Commission.
The software will help Main Street El Dorado gather attendance data for events with free admission and no ticket sales.
The program provides benefits beyond attendance tracking, including economic development, retail recruitment, and tourism analysis.
Placer data can differentiate between local and out-of-town visitors and provide information on foot traffic to help small businesses.

HOLY SHIT. @WSJ is reporting that ~80% of the ads @YouTube serves across the web have violated their own terms of service — and are therefore subject to refunds.
This is...a devastatingly huge deal. @GoogleAds is about to be out billions of $$.
