In this week's #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert talk about brands moving to Facebook's instant articles (in this case, Intel), and how FB needs to do more to help educate marketers and advertisers than their newly launched "creative hub". Podcasting gets a shot in the arm with eBay, and somewhere out there are some very happy, but very disillusioned marketers.  Rants and raves include Snapchat's new magazine.  TOM example of the week: Investools.

In this episode of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss how content marketing and advertising don't compete with each other and, believe it or not, are actually different (to some people's dismay).

In this week's episode of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert take a close look at honesty in content marketing. The FTC comes down hard on Lord & Taylor for untoward native advertising practices, while publishers struggle with content recommendations digging into credibility. Instagram loses the "insta" part of social content and NPR goes political with how they handle their podcast promotions.  Rants and raves include the death of social content and L'Oreal goes unbranded with their new content site.  This week's TOM example: Xavier University basketball.
