Smackdown: Consumers Privacy vs. Advertiser Revenue
In early 2009 the Federal Trade Commission became more vocal on its opinions regarding online advertising and privacy policies. To sum it up, the FTC has basically been saying advertisers are not disclosing how they collect information on users well enough. So what could happen to the future of advertising and online publishers if the FTC bans tracking consumers web activity? Let's discuss options, actions the industry is currently taking and the potential risks to advertisers and consumers if the bill passes. This panel is sponsored by Rubicon Project.

Breakout One: Are We Engaged? The Meaning of the New Metrics
"Engagement" is the new black of online marketing: fashionable and perhaps designed to cover a multitude of sins, particularly lack of reach. As audiences fragment and media brands struggle to scale, publishers now sell their ability to engage visitors on their sites with their content, and presumably with advertisers aligned with this brand loyalty. But what is "engagement" anyway? Are there any metrics to indicate depth of involvement with a site? Does content engagement translate into ad effectiveness? When forums, videos, or games pump up "time spent" on a site, is that a fair indication of user loyalty? Ultimately, do media buyers accept this argument that deeper, longer, more targeted audiences make up for lack of scale?

MinDay - Engagement Panel

April 15, 2008 10:15AM - New York
The New Measure of Success: Metrics in the Age of Engagement
Engagement is the new mantra of online publishing, but how do publishers define and measure this concept and gather from their audience the data points that are the new coin of the realm in interactive advertising? What metrics really matter most with advertisers? Is it “time spent” or “audience reach?” Do video, digital magazines, mobile, podcasting and other emerging media enhance or confuse the numbers game online? Our panelist will explore how publishers can make best use of their site and audience numbers with media buyers.

Privacy Challenges and Opportunities With Evolving Advertising

Dr. Eloise Coupey, Associate Professor, Pamplin College of Business, Department of Marketing, Virginia Tech

In the race toward ever-more precise marketing techniques, new models for delivering advertising are being developed and tested, such as behavioral advertising and location-based advertising, among others. The emergence of these new models has generated an intense discussion about how they fit into our current privacy policy and regulatory environment, leading the FTC to hold a town hall meeting on behavioral advertising in November 2007. This session will provide a report of the content and results of that meeting, and put it in the context of the current and evolving regulatory environment in the U.S. and internationally, with a particular focus on the EU. Additionally, the session will examine the possible impacts on consumer trust and perceptions of privacy in online and mobile environments.

3:00pm: How Open is Open?
Google is behind it. Verizon chimed in. Sprint and AT&T claim they are already there. But what exactly is an "open platform" in mobile? Will it help marketers attaint he reach and standardization they find so elusive on mobile? Will "openness" really accelerate adoption of mobile media by offering users more innovative content and applications? What do the carriers mean when they say "open" and what do Google and the new Handset Alliance mean by it?
