Facebook clarifies Custom Audience list management terms for agency-advertiser relationships

Since releasing new rules around Custom Audiences in June, Facebook is clarifying terms around a specific update to its Custom Audience list management policies.

Previously, Facebook stated advertisers may not sell or transfer their Custom Audiences or authorize any third party to sell or transfer custom audiences. The company is now updating that specific term to clarify that an advertiser with an independent relationship with an agency off of the platform can allow those agencies to manage their Custom Audience lists.

Here is the newly updated term in full:

You may not sell or transfer your custom audiences, or authorize any third party to sell or transfer Custom Audiences. If you have entered into an independent agreement with a partner for licensing marketing information, you may use the Custom Audiences tools and sharing functionality to create and provide custom audiences for advertising based on that information, subject to the requirements of these terms and applicable law.

Facebook says since updating the terms, it had started to receive questions from advertisers asking if paying an agency to manage their Custom Audience list qualified as selling or buying a Custom Audience.

Facebook has updated the term to make clear that working with an agency to manage your Custom Audience lists isn’t considered selling or transferring the list.

Facebook’s most recent updates to its Custom Audience rules went into effect on July 2. The company now requires advertisers to specify the origin of an audience’s information when uploading a Custom Audience list. This makes it possible for Facebook to show users how advertisers got their information and if they are being targeted by their phone or email address when they click on “Why am I seeing this ad?” in an ad’s drop-down menu.

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become majestic.com. Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of majestic.com (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.

What will happen to influencer marketing if Instagram ‘Likes’ go away?

In April, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong discovered Instagram was testing removing “Like” counts on posts. At the time, an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch it was not a public test, but an internal prototype and that the company was “exploring” new ways to reduce pressure on Instagram.The possibility that Instagram – a primary platform for influencer marketing – may potentially eliminate “Likes” could impact the influencer community, causing brands to question whether or not an influencer has enough sway to contribute to the brand’s marketing efforts. Without an outward facing metric such as “Likes,” influencers would have to rely on other resources to prove their content is worthwhile – once such resource: influencer marketing agencies.Good news for agencies“I do see it as a good thing for influencer marketing agencies and platform providers,” said Leah Logan, VP of media product strategy and marketing for Collective Bias.Logan’s influencer marketing agency works with a numbe…
