This Old Marketing

Donald Trump's Truth Social is hitting bigger numbers...but are they big enough?

Instagram's changes from social network to content discovery platform is messing with a number of small business models, while YouTube and TikTok block Andrew Tate from the platform.

Google launched a new "really helpful" SEO update that attacks sites that don't answer the question searched for. Will their update really fix anything at all? Probably not.

And...is TikTok monitoring your information? You bet they are.

Rants and raves include the fiasco in Cleveland sports and a review of The Sandman.

This week Joe and Robert cover the big news out of Disney. Do they really have more subscribers than Netflix? Are they the greatest media company of all-time? (the answer is yes)

Axios sells to Cox Enterprises, creating a local media opportunity that may be unprecedented. At the 5x revenue valuation, the boys ponder how a content marketing division could be valued (revenue or not).

Lyft creates a media division...but the real story is the ongoing diversification of audience and customer revenue.

Rants and raves include online gambling content and whether it's better or worse to work from home.

Twitter is launching a new version of Spaces. Is this the answer to the platform's woes, or is this just another move to find a "non-Elon" acquirer of the business?

Meta discontinues paying media companies as part of their news feed. But good news! They are adding it on the Instagram side. Is Meta searching to find its way or could they be Microsoft from a decade ago?

We are shocked that payola is happening on podcasts. What needs to be done to combat this?

Rants and raves include commentary from Robert about how Meta is actually in a pretty good position after all. Joe raves about Ryan Reynolds new MNTN ad.
