Did you know it’s Hard to Believe Promises Day? I just made that up but let’s go with it. We’ll start with Fanatical Labs (great name) which offers a “no-code integration platform that delivers a true single customer view”. The product is Glances and its “helpful persona” is Glancey (not so great name). Unlike a true CDP, Glances accesses data in its original source system rather than loading into a separate database. I’ll point out that many have tried this approach and decided to create a separate database after all.
Next we have IDShield, which has extended its identity protection, privacy and reputation monitoring system to find and review old social media accounts and delete potentially offensive content. Sounds nice but we have plenty of evidence that bad comments have a way of resurfacing even after the original post is deleted.
Finally, we have a promise from video ad platform LoopMe that your ads will never appear near hateful content. Users get a range of rules to block content topics, sites or apps and to use third-party brand safety services. Sadly, those are far from perfect and it’s not clear that LoopMe is doing anything extra. We also don’t know what happens if they fail to meet their “promise” to keep your ad from appearing in the wrong place.
