  • Do young people have a chance at finding accurate election news on social media?
    In the UK, one in three minutes spent online are devoted to social media and instant messaging. When it comes to running an election campaign, that amount of engagement online is both a blessing and a curse. You have potential access to the 45 millions people (67%) in the UK who are social media users (and potential voters) but so do your competitors. The 2019 election campaign trail is proving to be one of the most divisive we’ve ever seen. In ITV’s recent General Election debate, 51% of the public polled said that Boris Johnson won, while 49% said Jeremy ... read more

That meeting is recalled in a partnership with The Great One and Tim Hortons. ‘The Autograph tells the true story of how ... read more

  • Creative Works of the Week: Standard Chartered’s ‘Stand Red’ and Morrisons’ holiday campaigns
    The Drum continues to package up the top works of the week from our Creative Works and Christmas roundups. Grocer Morrisons tops the holiday list by showing shoppers its selfless giving program.

  • Cut the cookie: digital advertising's overdue diet
    Let’s face it: third-party cookies have always been a stop-gap solution, largely unfit for the task of long-term user tracking and targeting. Increased emphasis on consumer privacy, led by GDPR and the impending California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), has only accelerated wider acknowledgment and acceptance of this well-kept secret that most of the people in ad tech knew all along. Already, the main browsers have either stopped cookie use altogether or at least restricted it significantly, while the fall of the cookie was a key talking point at this year’s Dmexco. So as we approach the next decade, the collapse ... read more
