Fresh Perspective

Oath CEO Tim Armstrong and Unilever CMO Keith Weed are being considered for the top job at WPP Group, Financial Times reports.

Apple hopes allowing publishers to use the industry’s most dominant ad server will make it easier for publishers to manage inventory across Apple News, Google AMP and Facebook Instant Articles and generate real revenue from Apple News.

But targeting options are still limited to context and demo, thanks to Apple’s strict privacy stance. More.
