This week we start out looking at brands’ changing digital Super Bowl strategies, a wearable from MIT & Samsung for those who have trouble picking up social cues, & Facebook opening up their Audience Network. Our host, Maureen Jann is joined by Google’s Nick Danford and talks about the future of Google’s advertising platforms and a test of new profit-driven automated bidding models that Point It is taking part in. In case none of that sounds entertaining enough, stay tuned for a highly entertaining discussion of such crucial topics as haiku versus emoji love letters, cootie catchers, and ballet. How about that for fake news.
