Google for Creators Dec 03, 2021 min read Chanelle Garcia Google for Creators team 10:25 Google for Creators recently launched The Conversation, a new YouTube series spotlighting the experiences of women of color creators. This month, we’re featuring beauty and lifestyle creator Tyla-Lauren Gilmore, who shared how her natural hair journey led her to build an online community and become a full-time content creator. Learn more about Tyla-Lauren below and check out the full interview. In 2014, Tyla-Lauren Gilmore graduated college and began to earn a living on her own. She was also trying to find herself, and started thinking about what kind of image she presented to the world. As she looked in the mirror, she wondered why, as a woman of color, she was straightening her natural curls — a process that, over many years, left her hair dry and damaged. “A college friend told me, ‘Ty, people pay for your curly hair. You should embrace it,’” the native New Yorker says. “Not many of my friends had curly hair, so it was up to me. I was in search of community.” Tyla-Lauren took to social media to find other women who looked like her. After following a few...

Winter is coming: 9 ways to enjoy it with Google

Maps Dec 03, 2021 min read Brrring on the cold: Here are a few ways you can use Google tools to enjoy the season. M Molly McHugh-Johnson Contributor, The Keyword As a native Oregonian, I thought living in California would be an incredible break from the nine months of rain I’d endured growing up. What I didn’t realize was that 70-degree winters felt…wrong. Where were the mittens? The down jackets? The occasional snowy days? I’ve since moved back to the Pacific Northwest, and I’ve had a renewed appreciation for winter weather. In fact, I enjoy the chilly months of the year so much, I’ve put together a few ways to make the most of the cold weather. I love snowshoeing, and I always want to find new trails. I use Google Maps to look for mountain biking and hiking trails that are covered in snow in the winter. (Just look for the hiking icons, or the light dash lines that indicate trails.) If I come across a good one, I label it on Maps so I know how to get back. 2. I’m a year-round runner, but once the temperature dips below 50 Fahrenheit and the roads get wet or icy,...

An update on our Privacy Sandbox commitments

For further background on this topic, please see our blog from June. Since we announced our Privacy Sandbox commitments earlier this year, we have continued to work with the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to address feedback that was raised as part of its public consultation process. We have also continued to update and seek feedback from the market and the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) on our proposals. We are determined to ensure that the Privacy Sandbox is developed in a way that works for the entire ecosystem and, as part of this process, we have now offered revised commitments, which can be found in full on the CMA’s website. These revisions underline our commitment to ensuring that the changes we make in Chrome will apply in the same way to Google’s ad tech products as to any third party, and that the Privacy Sandbox APIs will be designed, developed and implemented with regulatory oversight and input from the CMA and the ICO. We also support the objectives set out yesterday in the ICO’s Opinion on Data protection and privacy expectations for online advertising proposals, including the importance of supporting and developing privacy-safe advertising tools that protect people’s privacy...

New EU political ads law is a step in the right direction

Having access to the right information matters. During a democratic election, it matters more than ever. High-quality information helps people make informed decisions when voting and counteracts abuse by bad actors. Through programs like security training for campaigns, information about polling places and transparency for political ads, Google is committed to helping support the integrity of democratic processes around the world. Political advertising is an important component of democratic elections — candidates use ads to raise awareness, share information and engage potential voters. Over the last few years, Google has proactively increased transparency around election advertising: we updated our ads policies to require election advertisers to verify their identities and show who’s paying for an ad. We also introduced transparency reporting for online election ads in Europe as well as in the US and other countries around the world, providing a range of data that goes well beyond what’s typically available for TV, radio or print ads. We have also made real changes to how election advertising works. In 2020, we implemented industry-leading restrictions to limit election ads’ audience targeting to age, gender and general location (at the postal code level), similar to categories candidates would use in deciding where to...

Last year, 26% of Britons planned to eat more plant-based foods for Christmas, according to research from the Vegan Society. Meanwhile, Waitrose reported that pre-orders of vegan Christmas foods were up 700% compared with 2019; Marks & Spencer introduced thirty new vegan foods for the holidays, and Tesco announced ten plant-based centerpieces for its 2020 roster, with some selling out weeks in advance. It’s not just the UK, either. In 2021, 582,000 people from 209 countries participated in Veganuary, a campaign encouraging people to try veganism for the month of January and beyond—breaking all previous records. As awareness about farm animal welfare, climate change, and health concerns grow, plant-based foods continue to boom in popularity. For commercial food photographers, the shift toward ethical and sustainable dining marks an important turning point—and a fresh opportunity to incorporate new colors and flavors. Ahead of the 2021 holiday season—and holiday advertising campaigns!—we wanted to take a look at a few movements and trends to consider when shooting seasonal content for your Licensing portfolio, from plant-based foods and beyond.

During the first wave of the pandemic, social media engagement increased by 61% when compared to normal usage rates, according to research by Kantar. The average American spent 82 minutes a day on social media in 2020, up seven minutes from the previous year, while visits to TikTok soared by almost 600%. From Instagram to Twitter, social media has transformed the way we work and socialize, and visualizing these changes has become increasingly important in advertising and visual communications. Heading into the next year, commercial photography that illustrates the social media experience, from posting to scrolling and beyond, will continue to resonate with brands and consumers alike. Here are four themes to keep in mind when shooting for your Licensing portfolio going forward.   A note on intellectual property When working with any kind of technology, it’s important to beware of copyrighted material or branding. Intellectual property protections apply to logos (apps, devices, etc.) as well as specific designs, including buttons and charging ports on mobile phones, cameras, and computers. Keep your props generic, or edit out any problem areas in post-production. Spotlight on: Micro-moments When discussing commercial photography, we use the term “micro-moments” to describe candid, everyday scenes that make...
