Google and Apple will kill the future of Facebook yet?

srtxt_20140503

World’s most valuable company , the dominant global search field , the world’s largest social network. It would have been unlikely three associated companies , because the mobile Internet and smart phones are becoming competitors , and even life and death of the enemy .
Recently , Facebook has once again released strong quarterly earnings reports , mainly thanks to its mobile advertising revenue growth. Although the overall market saturation resulted in Facebook user growth slowed, but its user engagement and average revenue per user are on the rise , mobile revenue for the first time exceeded the non-mobile revenues .
Part of the reason for this growth is due to the attractiveness of Facebook mobile advertising : most other mobile advertising – at the top or bottom of the screen a small banner – different , Facebook mobile ads directly in the timeline . Thus, when the user scrolls the screen , each ad has a chance to fill the entire screen. This can be said is the best form of digital advertising .
Clearly, Facebook’s mobile revenue comes from the largest part of the application installation advertising , which is to encourage users to download an application, rather than simply selling products. According to the CEO of the company AdKnowledge • Legacy (Ben Legg) that the application is installed in advertising revenue accounted for Facebook mobile revenue share of over 50 %.
The main buyers of these ads are free game publishers , such as King Company (Candy Crush Saga provider ) and Big Fish Games Company (Bejeweled series of games provider ) , these companies use Facebook surprisingly willing to spend money to find demographic data customers who bought within the application .
This process is this:
Publishers launched a free game , attracting a large number of user access.
Some players become “digital Whale (digital whales)”, in order to spend money to upgrade in the game again .
Game publishers to calculate these ” profitable players ‘ demographic profile and use Facebook’s mobile advertising to attract potential players .
This technique is so effective that kind of advertising spaces obviously in short supply , leading to soaring advertising prices . Demand is greater than supply , which is exactly what Facebook’s new mobile advertising network for a reason to be optimistic about .
So, where is the problem? In fact, the biggest problem is , Facebook application installation relies on advertising , making it very vulnerable to Apple Inc. and Google ( microblogging ) ‘s blow.
In terms of Apple , Facebook should be wary of it to make significant changes to its App Store free games policy . Apple’s ecosystem , many people strongly opposed free games, if Apple ‘s management worried that such applications will reduce their brand image , they will suppress or even prohibited it .
Google is a bigger threat. Last week, Google launched its own application installed ads on the search results page and YouTube. They may not be as eye-catching as Facebook timeline ads , but Google will have the best database – Android applications using the data . In his blog, Google made ​​it clear that its ads can ” reach the most likely customers , based on their habit of using the application , the frequency and type of use to buy their applications .”
Free game publisher for it , the type of data even more valuable than demographics. Therefore , Google may replace Facebook, become the first choice for mobile applications advertisers . Although Facebook has made ​​several acquisitions , which could help it better understand the behavior of the user application , Facebook is restarting F8 Developers Conference , to encourage application developers importance Facebook – but understanding the actual use of the application aspects of the case , Facebook is still in a disadvantageous situation.
Yes, there are always too good story hidden , fast-growing companies often do not have time to lay a solid foundation. Facebook is just a few years before it achieved significant growth in the mobile business , it does not actually have a basic platform for mobile applications. In this world dominated by the mobile Internet , the future is bound to Facebook and Apple and Google fierce collision . In the application data and understanding of consumer behavior , Apple and Google temporarily the upper hand – Facebook was only temporary money.
