9. ACHACH It’s already happening… FPRA

10. ACHACH FPRA

11. ACHACH Why does all video make sense for brands? • Best ad targeting platform on the social web • The numbers are through the roof (warning: inflated metrics ahead) • Adding new functionality all the time (Facebook Live, 360 videos)

34.

FPRA

36. ACHACH FPRA

44. ACHACH Why hasn’t it caught on yet? • Still early • Brands think you need a 360 camera • Lack of perceived need FPRA
