140 Proof Launches Social Ad Platform for Premium Media Brands

140 Proof Platform now enables media companies to advertise directly to their millions of fans and followers across all digital devices; announces partnership with Atlantic Media Company

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Social advertising company 140 Proof today rolled out the next phase of its open platform initiative with the launch of 140 Proof Platform for premium media brands, working with well-known original content creators and distributors in digital, print, and TV, including the Atlantic Media Company. The offering enables content publishers to monetize their social audience for the first time across the digital social layer, spanning any screen or device.

Premium media brands have used social networks to expand their digital presence beyond their owned and operated properties, and they are now pushing out daily content in the form of social posts and other content to a large, high-value audience of millions of fans and followers. For example, ESPN properties have over 30 million combined followers on Twitter – rivaling the monthly audience of visitors to ESPN.com. But while social advertising platforms like 140 Proof, Facebook, and Twitter are monetizing branded media content and social audiences at the point of consumption, media companies have not been able to do the same.

With 140 Proof Platform, premium media brands can now monetize their content and audience in social feeds, sites and apps for the first time, in addition to their traditional "owned and operated" properties and advertising inventory. Using 140 Proof Platform, digital publishers will also be able to enrich targeting and ad offerings on their own sites and apps with rich social data and native social ad units.

140 Proof Platform enables digital publishers to monetize their social content and audiences in the following ways:

  1. Social Audience Extensions: Media brands can offer social ad and audience extensions off-site to their existing advertisers – targeted and delivered via 140 Proof Platform.
  2. Native Social Ad Units: Media brands can integrate 140 Proof native social ads on their own properties, anywhere there is a curated stream of tweets, updates, pins, or other social posts. IAB standard and Rich Media units are also supported. All 140 Proof-served advertising is highly targeted based on the company's Interest Graph Targeting™ technology.
  3. Interest Graph Targeting: Publishers can also use 140 Proof's Interest Graph Targeting to enhance their own social advertising offerings and site-served display campaigns.

Atlantic Media Company is using 140 Proof Platform to create new ad inventory and products, expanding its offerings for advertisers and enhancing the ability to reach readers. Working with 140 Proof, Atlantic Media Company, including The Atlantic, Quartz, National Journal, Government Executive and Think Custom Media, will now be able to target and deliver ads to the millions of followers and fans of its brands, titles, and journalists across the social sites and apps where their content is discovered and shared. Atlantic Media Company will also have the ability to use 140 Proof Platform to reach social audiences with similar interests to their own followers – for example The Atlantic could customize their social audience to include followers of @Gates Foundation, the keyword "sustainability", and #Earth Day to support a given advertiser or campaign.

"Readers of The Atlantic and its sister publications are highly engaged on social platforms like Facebook and Twitter, extending the reach and longevity of our articles in a wholly organic way. I'm excited to work with 140 Proof to further engage our audience on behalf of our advertising partners, reaching them in new places where they may discover and share our compelling custom blog posts, videos, infographics, and more," said Jay Lauf, Publisher of The Atlantic and Senior Vice President/Group  Publisher of Atlantic Media Company.

"At 140 Proof we've been monetizing high-value social audiences built by premium media brands for years, as have other social advertising platforms like Facebook and Twitter. That said, we've reached a tipping point in scale and adoption that makes this the right move on behalf of publishers, particularly as ad budgets continue to shift to social. Digital publishers need an option to monetize their social audience themselves. Social advertising demand is growing faster than the current offerings can meet – so we're excited about the timing and opportunity in releasing this capability from 140 Proof Platform," said Andy Scott, co-founder and CRO at 140 Proof.

140 Proof launched its open platform initiative in May, which for the first time allowed select agencies, brands and media partners to use the company's Interest Graph Targeting and network of social sites and apps to deliver rich, targeted ads with social actions. Initial launch partners included mobile technology leaders such as JumpTap, Celtra and OneLouder. 140 Proof is now extending the reach of its open platform initiative to premium media brands.

140 Proof Platform is powered by proprietary interest graph technology. Growing at a rate of over two billion data points per day, the interest graph is composed of publicly available online social data such as Likes, Follows and the connections between people brands, products, and influencers. 140 Proof measures the social spectrum of interests, capturing signals from Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Foursquare, Pinterest, Instagram and other social sites to enable any media property to deliver relevant, high performing social ads.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
