Further proof that education is unnesseasry and all we need is a bit of Blitz spirit.

Stop calling the police on kids/people doing donuts in parking lots. They are literally out having fun. Worst case scenario, they hit a concrete pole and they now have a dead Honda.
Don't be Petty people, we only get this Snow once a year.
Also a good place to learn Defensive driving and how to control your vehicle in a slide.

To be fair, no one wants to smash up their car. So most are going to be careful.

Some interesting B2B messaging coming out of Facebook:

https://en-gb.facebook.com/business/app ... -marketing

Apple's proposed changes will limit your ability to effectively reach, understand and engage people on mobile devices and across the web. They will affect your ability to understand performance, control who sees your ads and make informed decisions about your advertising budgets. As these changes take effect, over time, you may see an overall decrease in ad performance and personalisation and an increase in cost per action.

Specifically, these changes will limit your ability to:

Effectively deliver ads to people based on their engagement with your business
Measure and report on conversions from certain customers
Ensure that your ads are delivered to the most relevant audiences at the right frequency
Accurately attribute app installs to people using iOS 14 and later
Predict and optimise cost per action over time and efficiently allocate budgets

Apple's policy will make it much harder for small businesses to reach their target audience, which will limit their growth and their ability to compete with big companies. Case in point, our studies show that when running ads on the Facebook family of apps to drive sales on their websites, small businesses saw a cut of over 60% of their sales, on average, for every dollar they spent when they weren't able to use their own data to find customers on Facebook1. For example, currently, a local book shop could spend GBP 50 on a relevant and personalised ad and may win five sales. Without the use of their own data to personalise an ad, that business would spend GBP 50 and may only win two sales. We don't anticipate the proposed iOS 14 changes to cause a full loss of personalisation, but rather are a move in that direction.

Without the predictable costs and personalised ads you're accustomed to creating and running, many new products and services would never get off the ground. We believe in the opportunity for new ad-supported businesses to start and grow, but we do not agree with Apple's attempt to disrupt the online ad ecosystem and the small business opportunities it makes possible and sustains.



and

How Apple's changes may significantly limit your marketing efforts In June, Apple announced product and policy changes that will affect data sharing across iOS. The proposed changes will have a significant impact on the way in which you can run ads, measure performance and engage your customers, while also harming the growth of businesses and the free Internet. We believe that free, ad-supported businesses have been essential to the growth and vitality of the Internet, and that personalised ads and user privacy can coexist. We support proactive privacy measures and data transparency, but we don't agree with Apple's policy changes. As we continue to work on your behalf, we encourage you to share this information within your organisation and develop a plan to address this disruption to your current marketing efforts.


lol, basically "businesses succeed because of us, and the "free" internet couldn't survive without us.

They've essentially copypasta'd these two different business models and "appeals" to Facebook page admins together to whinge about Apple moving against privacy invasions by default, which the major browsers (especially Firefox, and Chrome blocking cookies by default now) are doing too.

Personally I don't feel I need to turn in my customer's privacy and stalk them in order to sell them stuff, but that's me. Actually, I would very much prefer it if my competitor's DIDN'T pump money into this practice so that it were a more level playing field.

Think you're behind the curve on this one mate, they ran similar newspaper ads the tail end of last year.

Surely it is a level playing field in that you can also use targeted ads currently?

I consult with a few small businesses on the side and to be honest, social ad targeting (particularly geographic) can be really helpful for them to maximise the value of ad spend.

I noticed it because it came up as a pop-up today, so they're still pushing for the "it's Apple's fault your business will dive" angle.

You could say it's a level playing field, as there is the possibility of reaching such a spend necessary to get meaningful results. Maybe my targeting is shite. I.e. a 10 mile geographic area for specific areas of interest of a specific age range for a short range of time with targeted rich content.

What I suspect, is the more successful you are with social ads, obviously the more you spend. That's what they want? I was charged in the end for impressions, for example, when it was strongly implied it would be clickthough instead. Maybe I went through the whole process wrong, but Google, for example, DOES charge you CPI and PPI. I'll always be critical of a publisher, that amounts to an unregulated publisher with limitless capital and reach (the greatest reach and some of the greatest capital in the world), insisting businesses are essentially strawberry floated because a platform holder's policy change. I've not read deeply into Apple's proposed changes, but I find it quite funny when Facebook tries to attest that business are successful because of them, and not incidental to them, or were not possible before them. When, of course, some )but obviously not all) businesses were highly successful on the Internet before Facebook, and indeed before the Internet. It's rather grandiose, no?

I agree it's clearly overstated - Fb and Insta are good tools, nothing more.

Without knowing your positioning/strategy/etc it's difficult for me to comment on your targeting. Facebook is notoriously gooseberry fool at accurately targeting aspects like interests though so consider removing some of those and have another look at the creative you're putting in front of people.

Definitely the more you spend the greater the chance of success though, of course - like with all advertising platforms.
