Facebook has shown strong performance in Q4 with revenues up 40%. Its mobile ad sales have more than doubled on the previous quarter to total $306m, and now account for 23% of the Social Network’s overall ad revenues. The challenge now is in how it can increase monetisable engagement between users and advertisers whilst maintaining quality in terms of both targeting and also user experience. Graph Search is capable of doing this at the local business level, but getting increasingly more from big brands is the big challenge.

Facebook has confounded critics who thought it would be incapable of making money from the rapid growth of mobile device usage. Not only has it revealed a strong performance in Q4 with revenues up 40%, its mobile ad sales have more than doubled on the previous quarter to total $306m, to account for 23% of the Social Network’s overall ad revenues. However, according to Andreas Pouros, COO at Greenlight, there are indicators Facebook has achieved this growth by being as aggressive as it can be in pushing advertising to the masses within the confines it currently works in.

Google has announced a trial which will enable people using the search engine to see search queries feature results from their Gmail account. The search giant also said it is extending Google Knowledge Graph to every English speaking country. If rolled out permanently the former would have some drawbacks for marketers data-wise and, whilst it could be viewed as an opportunity from an email marketing perspective, that would be highly dependent on message retention. The Knowledge Graph meanwhile will benefit retailers, brands and digital marketers.
