Uber drivers continued making normal pick-ups during that hour and Uber announced half an hour later that surge pricing had been turned off at JFK.
That memo has also been published to Facebook, and Uber appears to have used Facebook’s interest-targeting tool to serve it with a preference for users who have expressed an interest in the ACLU.
However, interest-targeting parameters are not publicly visible on Twitter, so The Verge cannot determine how the ad is being served.
Targeting the ads by city would probably have been nearly as effective without being anywhere close to as embarrassing.
So it is, further, not surprising to see Uber using Lyft’s own tactic to try to claw back some ground.
Facebook launches a marketing mix modeling portal for comparing Facebook ads to TV, print & more
Perhaps most notably, Facebook also launched a Marketing Mix Modeling (MMM) portal online, where measurement partners can gather data directly from Facebook, Instagram and the Audience Network for their clients.
When its integrations are finalized, Facebook will have a total of 24 global third-party measurement partners available to advertisers.
Here, they’ll be able to compare which ads – including TV, digital and print – are best helping them reach their desired outcomes.
Those partners have been integrating with Facebook in order to measure things like the impression, reach, performance and other metrics advertisers care about.
Several partners, including comScore, Ad Science and Moat, can also now provide metrics on when display ads enter and appear on the Facebook screen, thanks to finalized integrations that were first announced this November.
