Episode 4: Cambridge Analytica, Social Networks, and the Future of Data Mining
In episode four of the Marketing on Tap podcast, we take a look at how the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal has left an indelible mark on how social networks gather data about their users. While Facebook may say it's taken steps to ensure it's going to do a lot better when it comes to its users, recent events would suggest otherwise, with the confirmation there's already attempted meddling in this year's U.S. mid-terms on the platform, and chief security officer Alex Stamos stepping down. With this background, what does it mean for marketers who use data from social networks to identify specific audiences? And what knock-on effect does that have for other networks and data sets when it comes to consumer trust? Settle back and enjoy this week’s topic, brought to you in the usual unscripted manner that you’ve come to expect when Sam and Danny take the mic.
