What Facebook’s Long-Form Original Content Means For Facebook & Advertising

It wasn’t long ago that Facebook forever altered the face of online video with Facebook Live. Now, less than two years after it launched Live, Facebook is looking to change online video on Facebook again, this time with long-form original content.

Much like it did when it launched Live, Facebook is partnering with some well-known publishers and media companies like BuzzFeed, Vox, and Group Nine Media to create what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg referred to as “anchor content” in its May 2017 earnings call.

The 5 Key Things Advertisers Must Know About Snapchat's Q1 Earnings Report

Snapchat’s parent company, Snap Inc., is set to release its Q1 earnings report this week. This will be the first earnings report since Snap’s IPO and will be telling where its future as a company is concerned. Facing stiff competition from Facebook and Instagram, Snap is approaching a pivotal moment for its survival.

In the year prior to its IPO, Snap saw a total revenue of $404.5 million and a $514.6 million net loss. It wasn’t profitable at the time of its IPO and its profitability isn’t likely to change soon. In fact, a senior equity analyst estimates that in Q1 2017, Snap may have pulled in $142 million in revenue and lost $2.2 billion. It’s worth noting, however, that going public can be a costly endeavor and that Facebook and Twitter posted net losses of $157 million and $511 million respectively in the quarter after their IPOs.

We’ll be watching closely to see what Snap’s Q1 earnings report can tell us about what’s next for Snap, but there are a few key factors affecting Snap’s stock prices and business that marketers should pay attention to as we approach the critical report.
