In fact, according to a recent study by eMarketer, mobile claimed about 70% of the total US digital advertising space in 2018, while AppsFlyer predicts app install ad spend will grow 45% this year to hit nearly $40 billion worldwide.The problem is that this success has also led to intense competition. As a result, driving organic users at scale is not a realistic outcome for most apps. Market-driven, non-organic installs play an increasingly important role in them mix.To help you rise to the top in the mobile-first era, AppsFlyer put together this comprehensive guide.

Across all industries – travel, fashion, technology, food and entertainment – women make up 77% of the total number of influencers. You would think with such a stronghold on an industry, women’s pay would, at least, be equal to men – but no. On average, women are earning $351 per social media post while men earn $459, according to a report from Klear influencer marketing platform.Pay gap highest on YouTube“When segmenting the data by channel, we noticed that YouTube had the highest gender pay gap,” said Guy Avigdor, COO and co-founder of Klear, “Overall, we found a 33% gap across all other platforms, yet YouTube was 5% higher with a 38% pay gap between men and women.”Klear analyzed more than 2,500 influencers across Instagram, Facebook and YouTube during all of 2018 and discovered the only industry where women influencers earn more than men was the travel industry, with women taking in $615 per post…

New study from Pega shows consumers don’t trust artificial intelligence

A new report released by Pega that examined consumer attitudes towards artificial intelligence indicates that despite the growing usage of AI technologies, consumers lack an understanding of how they can benefit from AI and are more likely to trust a real person to help make decisions.“Our study found that only 25% of consumers would trust a decision made by an AI system over that of a person regarding their qualification for a bank loan,” said Dr. Rob Walker, vice president, decisioning and analytics at Pega. “Consumers likely prefer speaking to people because they have a greater degree of trust in them and believe it’s possible to influence the decision, when that’s far from the case. What’s needed is the ability for AI systems to help companies make ethical decisions. To use the same example, in addition to a bank following regulatory processes before making an offer of a loan to an individual it should also be able to determine whether or not it’s the right thing to do ethically.”…

Add to the changes in public perceptions of these companies, and you get what we have today: a tsunami of impending investigations from the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission and Congress.Despite what seems like a consequential set of developments, it’s important to remember that there’s a major difference between investigations, hearings and any real-world outcomes that could result.What’s been announced or leaked.
