140 Proof Launches Social Ad Platform for Premium Media Brands

140 Proof Platform now enables media companies to advertise directly to their millions of fans and followers across all digital devices; announces partnership with Atlantic Media Company

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Social advertising company 140 Proof today rolled out the next phase of its open platform initiative with the launch of 140 Proof Platform for premium media brands, working with well-known original content creators and distributors in digital, print, and TV, including the Atlantic Media Company. The offering enables content publishers to monetize their social audience for the first time across the digital social layer, spanning any screen or device.

Premium media brands have used social networks to expand their digital presence beyond their owned and operated properties, and they are now pushing out daily content in the form of social posts and other content to a large, high-value audience of millions of fans and followers. For example, ESPN properties have over 30 million combined followers on Twitter – rivaling the monthly audience of visitors to ESPN.com. But while social advertising platforms like 140 Proof, Facebook, and Twitter are monetizing branded media content and social audiences at the point of consumption, media companies have not been able to do the same.

With 140 Proof Platform, premium media brands can now monetize their content and audience in social feeds, sites and apps for the first time, in addition to their traditional "owned and operated" properties and advertising inventory. Using 140 Proof Platform, digital publishers will also be able to enrich targeting and ad offerings on their own sites and apps with rich social data and native social ad units.

140 Proof Platform enables digital publishers to monetize their social content and audiences in the following ways:

  1. Social Audience Extensions: Media brands can offer social ad and audience extensions off-site to their existing advertisers – targeted and delivered via 140 Proof Platform.
  2. Native Social Ad Units: Media brands can integrate 140 Proof native social ads on their own properties, anywhere there is a curated stream of tweets, updates, pins, or other social posts. IAB standard and Rich Media units are also supported. All 140 Proof-served advertising is highly targeted based on the company's Interest Graph Targeting™ technology.
  3. Interest Graph Targeting: Publishers can also use 140 Proof's Interest Graph Targeting to enhance their own social advertising offerings and site-served display campaigns.

Atlantic Media Company is using 140 Proof Platform to create new ad inventory and products, expanding its offerings for advertisers and enhancing the ability to reach readers. Working with 140 Proof, Atlantic Media Company, including The Atlantic, Quartz, National Journal, Government Executive and Think Custom Media, will now be able to target and deliver ads to the millions of followers and fans of its brands, titles, and journalists across the social sites and apps where their content is discovered and shared. Atlantic Media Company will also have the ability to use 140 Proof Platform to reach social audiences with similar interests to their own followers – for example The Atlantic could customize their social audience to include followers of @Gates Foundation, the keyword "sustainability", and #Earth Day to support a given advertiser or campaign.

"Readers of The Atlantic and its sister publications are highly engaged on social platforms like Facebook and Twitter, extending the reach and longevity of our articles in a wholly organic way. I'm excited to work with 140 Proof to further engage our audience on behalf of our advertising partners, reaching them in new places where they may discover and share our compelling custom blog posts, videos, infographics, and more," said Jay Lauf, Publisher of The Atlantic and Senior Vice President/Group  Publisher of Atlantic Media Company.

"At 140 Proof we've been monetizing high-value social audiences built by premium media brands for years, as have other social advertising platforms like Facebook and Twitter. That said, we've reached a tipping point in scale and adoption that makes this the right move on behalf of publishers, particularly as ad budgets continue to shift to social. Digital publishers need an option to monetize their social audience themselves. Social advertising demand is growing faster than the current offerings can meet – so we're excited about the timing and opportunity in releasing this capability from 140 Proof Platform," said Andy Scott, co-founder and CRO at 140 Proof.

140 Proof launched its open platform initiative in May, which for the first time allowed select agencies, brands and media partners to use the company's Interest Graph Targeting and network of social sites and apps to deliver rich, targeted ads with social actions. Initial launch partners included mobile technology leaders such as JumpTap, Celtra and OneLouder. 140 Proof is now extending the reach of its open platform initiative to premium media brands.

140 Proof Platform is powered by proprietary interest graph technology. Growing at a rate of over two billion data points per day, the interest graph is composed of publicly available online social data such as Likes, Follows and the connections between people brands, products, and influencers. 140 Proof measures the social spectrum of interests, capturing signals from Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Foursquare, Pinterest, Instagram and other social sites to enable any media property to deliver relevant, high performing social ads.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
