Brands "Liking" Owned Digital Destinations Over Social Media

Jun Group Research Shows Advertisers Are Driving Consumers to Owned Destinations; Engagement to Popular Platforms Facebook and YouTube Declines

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- Jun Group (www.jungroup.com) data released today shows that brand advertisers have shifted their digital goals away from Facebook and YouTube to promote their owned online destinations. To view and/or download the research, visit www.jungroup.com/socialresearch.

According to Jun Group campaign data, the share of clicks driving consumers to brand owned and operated sites more than doubled from 2012 to 2013, increasing from 28% to 57%. Facebook and YouTube, which represented 31% and 38% respectively, declined to 10% and 24% over the same period.

"This shift towards owned content from social channels represents the convergence of a few big trends," said Mitchell Reichgut, CEO of Jun Group. "First, as advertisers spend more developing branded content and digital experiences, they want to drive audiences directly to those destinations. At the same time, social platforms have made it more complicated for brands to communicate with fans."

Brand goals have held steady from the latter half of 2013 into 2014, with 61% of campaign actions driving users to brand-owned sites. Facebook hit a low of 8% in the latter half of 2013 and rebounded to 16% in the first quarter of 2014. Meanwhile, YouTube continued to decline, receiving 15% of brand actions this from 22%.

"These behaviors indicate that the social channels are shifting from 'owned' audiences to more traditional 'paid' channels as they have matured," said Reichgut. "In 2012, people were focused on 'Likes' and 'follows.' Now, leading brands have built their followings and are using social platforms to run pre-roll and display that direct their audiences to owned and operated content."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
