This year, the world changed forever--including the world of advertising and marketing. Brands and agencies are being held responsible in ways we never have before. Consumers are demanding that we uphold the interests of the greater good. It started with COVID-19. Then, the killing of George Floyd and the Black Lives Movement raised awareness of how systemic racism impacts our world, and called for us all to play a role in society beyond commerce.
How have marketers and brands risen to the call? Execs and inclusion and diversity managers from Twitter, Starbucks, Facebook, Brookdale Senior Living, Nebo and Hawkeye Agency gathered this week to answer that question. In a webinar hosted by American Marketing Association Atlanta, Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association and Nebo, these experts discussed the ways in which brands are becoming a force for good, from reimagined hiring processes to tying corporate pay to diversity initiatives.

These changes are the result of settlement agreements with leading civil rights organizations, who brought multiple lawsuits against the social media platform regarding discrimination. Originally announced in March of 2019, the platform stated that these changes were being made in an effort to do more to protect against discrimination in these three specific indistries.
Today, we’re breaking down everything you need to know about HEC ad regulations and how they could affect your Facebook campaigns.
When millions of people began creating Facebook accounts in 2006, they could never have imagined how much of their personal data would be collected over the years.
Today, more and more people are becoming aware of the fact that their personal data is indeed collected and sold by social media platforms such as Facebook. In more recent years, people are standing up to the social media giants to communicate that they want their data protected.
