ASB Ruling – Implication for Brands in Facebook
The ASB ruling has been made without clear understanding of the functionality of the Facebook platform, particularly that there is no pre-moderation of Fan comments available to Page administrators – the limitation faced by all brands in Facebook.

How do you attribute digital monetisation?
I spoke at ad:tech Sydney last week, the session Don’t Sell Me … Tell Me – The Attribution Of Digital Monetisation.
