Meetrics and Facebook start partnership - Kickoff for more transparency in the digital media market
The partnership of Meetrics and Facebook is the first collaboration of the social network with a European ad verification provider. The goal is to offer independent third-party verification for the delivery of display and video ads on Facebook services.
Berlin/Hamburg, March 08, 2017 – In the coming months, Meetrics, acting as an independent provider, will offer advertisers new possibilities to verify the viewability and view duration of their campaigns on Facebook services.
The partnership with Meetrics underlines Facebook’s commitment to transparency and control for advertisers. People are in touch with ads through more and more channels. Accordingly, two aspects are increasingly imported for advertisers in measuring the performance of their campaigns: cross-channel comparability and verification by independent third-party providers.
Marianne Bullwinkel, Country Director Germany, Austria and Switzerland at Facebook: “For us, the success of our clients always comes first. More than 4.5 million advertisers worldwide rely on Facebook to drive real business results. The results of Facebook advertising have been verified by numerous independent studies. Many brand advertisers are looking for additional transparency on the viewability of the different ad formats on Facebook to measure their campaign performance. That’s why we are very much looking forward to working with Meetrics to further expand our transparency initiative. But we also see that rethinking common market standards, especially regarding mobile media consumption, will become even more important going forward.”
Meetrics Co-Founder and CEO Philipp von Hilgers: „Our clients want to have independent verification of the metrics provided by social networks about display and video ad views. This partnership provides advertisers with valuable insight and confidence which they can factor into their media planning. Max von Hilgers, CEO and Co-Founder of Meetrics: „Against a background of increasing social media budgets for international campaigns, we are seeing more demand for viewability measurements across the European markets. Our groundbreaking partnership with Facebook provides our advertiser clients with this much-needed reassurance for international campaign planning. “
