Today In Communication History
On this date in 1943, transmissions begin from Fernsehsender Paris, a television service on 441 lines using the occupied French facilities, with a studio in a former family residence at 9 rue Cognacq-Jay and another in the former Magic City in rue de l’Université. The service is for German soldiers in Parisian hospitals and military premises.
On this date in 1946, In the US, the Federal Communication Commission publishes Public Service Responsibilities for Broadcast Licensees (the Blue Book), a 139-page report described by Justin Miller, president of the National Association of Broadcasters as an invasion of freedom of speech.
NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

Social Media News
Facebook Bidding On NFL Live Streaming
Live TV streaming may be next on Facebook’s list of ambitions – and if so, the company ain’t starting small. According to Re/code, the social media giant is interested in nabbing the live-streaming rights to the NFL’s Thursday Night Football broadcasts, starting this coming season. Other companies, including Amazon and Verizon, are interested as well. The NFL is said to be nearing a decision as to which company will win the bidding war.
Baseball players Get One-off Pass To Use Snapchat Live
Snapchat and Major League Baseball have signed a deal that will allow players to post live from the dugout during March 11 training games. Players are normally forbidden from using social media during games.
How Do “Overlooked” Gen Xers Feel About Advertising?
The middle child of demographics has a different outlook on life. Gen X is the most influential generation, says Yahoo in a new study. Citing data showing that Gen X has the highest median income and controls close to one-third of total income dollars, Yahoo jumped into the media behaviors and attitudes of what it says are “influential but overlooked” consumers. Based on a survey of more than 2,000 adults, including more than 850 Gen Xers (35-54), the report indicates that 51% of Gen Xers feel that they are part of the “vanishing” middle class. As parents, almost half worry that their kids are spoiled, while more than 8 in 10 feel that it’s important that they instill some sense of financial understanding in their children. Two-thirds of Gen Xers feel that they work a lot harder than the Millennial generation, while only 38% of Millennials (18-34) surveyed feel that their generation works harder than older generations. Perhaps that’s not too surprising in light of other research showing how dim a view Millennials have of their own generation.
Gen Xers (13%) were only half as likely as Millennials (26%) to say they increased the amount of time they worked after having kids. Indeed, 81% of Gen X parents say that a work-life balance is important.
Turning to technology and content engagement, the report demonstrates that Gen Xers tend to multitask more than Millennials during prime time, but that it stunts their emotional response to content more so than for Millennials. When it comes to content, the idea of Gen X as the middle child emerges: they’re in between Millennials and Boomers (55-64) in terms of their likelihood to consume their top categories of content, ranging from news, to weather, music, food and cooking and technology. The only categories in which they’re the most likely to consume content are sports and travel (each by only a small margin). Gen Xers appear to be avid consumers of content online, though. Three-quarters do so when on social media, and almost one in 3 consume content posted by brands or companies. Meanwhile, close to 8 in 10 researched products online in the month prior to the survey, with the most commonly-researched products being clothing or apparel (37%), electronics (32%), entertainment items (26%) and food or beverages (26%).
The Yahoo study finds some interesting results in analyzing adults’ receptiveness to advertising. While one-quarter of Gen Xers agree that they feel like their generation is often forgotten about by advertisers, an almost equal share of Millennials (24%) feel the same way. Given the extreme amounts of attention paid to Millennials by marketers, this is surprising to say the least. Just as notable: Boomers (21%) were the least likely to agree that their generation is often forgotten about by advertisers. That runs counter to MarketingCharts research on advertising to Baby Boomers, which has found older Americans feeling ignored by advertisers despite controlling the vast majority of disposable income in the US.
In a similar question, roughly one-third of respondents to the Yahoo survey from each generation agreed that “it’s about time advertisers recognized that my generation shops too”. Here again the lack of differences between younger and older generations is surprising.
In other advertising-related attitudes, the study notes that:
◎ 30% of Gen Xers are more likely to click on an ad aimed specifically at their generation, compared to 37% of Millennials and 23% of Boomers; and
◎ 27% of Gen Xers are more likely to purchase a product from a brand whose ad is targeted specifically at their generation, compared to 27% of Millennials and 17% of Boomers.
◎ The study notes that in each of the attitudinal statements about advertising, agreement was higher among Gen X parents than among Gen Xers overall.
Recommendations for creative strategy and messaging include:
◉ Indulging Gen Xers’ “kick my feet up” fantasies;
◉ Kid/tech dilemmas and bonding moments;
◉ Nostalgia with a deeper purpose; and
◉ Chin-up inspiration.
Something everyone who is in advertising wanted to have is more in-depth measurement of outdoor billboards. Obviously, they want to know more than just how many people are seeing their advertisements. They want to know who exactly those people are, where they go, who they engage with, and what they buy. After all, this is the 21st Century.
According to Diego Vasquez, writing in MediaLife Magazine 030116, billboard owners see an opportunity in fulfilling that desire. They hope that by providing more information on who’s seeing their boards, they can gain more advertisers. A number of them have been testing beacons and other devices that will help track this information. Last week, Clear Channel Outdoor Americas became one of the first to roll out the data to a broad audience.
The company has partnered with several companies on a new program called Radar, which will track travel patterns, behavior and other information of interest to advertisers by arming billboards with devices that tap into the data on mobile phones of passersby. Now advertisers can better target their campaigns, whether by finding the best location or tailoring the creative in a certain manner. It’s a step beyond the basic demographic data currently offered by TAB ratings, and it comes at a time when measurement companies are under pressure to deliver better, more relevant information amid a sudden flood of big data availability. “We’ve been advocating for the last several years how important this is,” says Mark Boidman, managing director at Peter J. Solomon and an expert in OOH media. “In the world of online they can track you with cookies, they know where you’ve been and where you’re going next. It’s almost the same thing in real life.” Boidman says that over the past 18 months, a number of companies have been testing similar systems. CCO will likely be one of many to roll it out. “They all have the technology in place and are continuing to test and are seeing very positive results,” he says. “With the technology, whether it’s beacons or wifi tracking, you can see how many times somebody stands in front of a display.”
That’s the sort of in-depth information media people can use to plan campaigns. If someone keeps coming back to your display, you know it’s working. But if you’re seeing no returning traffic, you know you need to tweak it. CCO will partner with AT&T Data Patterns, which collects subscriber information, PlaceIQ, which data mines devices to determine behavior patterns, and Placed, which can track ad exposure and purchases and link them together. The ultimate aim is to be able to target consumers with ads for products they are most likely to buy. So if Radar has data showing that a consumer has cats and shops at a particular pet store, they may be shown an ad for cat litter on a billboard near that store.
Of course, this has the potential to inflame privacy advocates, who hate tracking of any type. CCO says the information is all anonymous and does not use any personal identifications. But Boidman says the potential upside for advertisers far outweighs any potential drawbacks. He notes that they’ve gotten used to the same thing online. “From a privacy standpoint, people are willing to give up information about themselves, as long as it’s aggregated and anonymous,” he says. “They’re very comfortable [doing so] in order to get valuable information in return that’s going to help them. Our view is it’s the same thing online. Some people find it okay that they’re being tracked and certain targeted ads head their way.” Radar is available now in CCO’s top 11 markets. The company plans to add other cities as the year progresses.’
