It’s no secret that ads on social media are a divisive topic. And I get it — in my time scrolling, I’ve come across some truly terrible targeting. But when an ad hits, it hits. So yeah, I’ll admit it: as a consumer, I LOVE my targeted ads. I’d even go as far to say that I look forward to seeing them. I’m here to say that, when done right, targeted ads can improve your experience on social by introducing you to new products you never would’ve stumbled upon — ones you actually want to see.
You’ve been on Pinterest, but have you been on Pinterest lately? No, I don’t mean for finding your next sheet pan meal, but for the purposes of advertising. Pinterest was born as a source of inspiration, but it has evolved since the days of saving that *perfect* Polyvore collage for your totally fetch outfit. Pinterest is now a place where organic content can enjoy a long life and sync with paid efforts to create a full-funnel strategy on the platform. In short, it’s time to meet your new advertising bestie.
POV: You just spent the last 24 hours doom-scrolling—like I did.

Source: Oreo Meta officially launched its text-based social media platform, Threads—engineered to be a direct competitor to Twitter. The platform is now available in more than 100 countries as of Wednesday, July 5, and was released ahead of its anticipated launch date.
