Facebook privacy, approval of Google-AdMob deal, SAP's SaaS and end of a TV commercial ad era. Get the rolling posts
Here’s a look at Monday, May 24:
WIth the concerns over Facebook privacy continuing to mount, the company is finally kicking into gear. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has written yet another public "We're sorry and changes are coming" letter to its members, this one appearing in today's Washington Post. The letter appears days after repots of user data being sent to advertisers and a survey that showed that 60 percent are considering 3alking away from the social network because of it.
The marriage of Google and AdMob finally received a blessing from U.S. regulators - and guess why the regulators were now OK with approving a deal that initially had them worried about the deal over antitrust concerns? It was Apple's announced plans to enter the mobile ad game that told regulators that the space can remain competitive.
Grab your Easter egg baskets because the hunt is on for the pieces of a puzzle that make up SAP's SaaS strategy. Lucky for you, Larry Dignan went on the hunt already and came up with these pieces, put together in an FAQ.
Goodbye, "Get a Mac" ads. It was a good run but all good things must come to an end. It's been some time since a fresh commercial has aired and the official Apple site no longer showcases them, as it previously does. But not to worry. This is a YouTube world and those commercials will live on in infamy.
