Edwards: 2015 Will See the Rise of Dark Social

dark-socialTMA SVP, Innovation & Strategy Tom Edwards tackled the subject of dark social and where he sees it headed in 2015. An excerpt from the Media Post article:

Dark social is the sharing activity that is somewhat invisible to traditional analytics. It’s the culmination of referrals and sharing of content that originates from instant messages, e-mails containing links, and most recently, the rise of ephemeral social communication platforms such as Snapchat, WeChat and WhatsApp.

A majority of focus today is on social broadcast platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. With the tides shifting toward ephemeral social communication applications as a key driver of sharing, the attribution data of the share — and all of the value that comes with it — is essentially untapped and, in some cases, simply unknown.”

    Hey I wanted to say hi. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d say something to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks!

    I simply wanted to say thanks yet again. I am not sure the things I might have handled without the entire methods discussed by you directly on this question. It had become a frustrating concern in my view, however , being able to view the expert mode you treated it took me to cry for gladness. I will be happier for this work and as well , pray you recognize what a powerful job you were getting into training the others via your webpage. I am certain you’ve never got to know all of us.

    Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thank you!

    There are certainly fantastic developments on the design of the blog, I truly love that. My site is dealing with teer common no today and generally there are lots of stuff to be done, I’m still a rookie in web page design. Be careful!
