AOL unveils new ad units to counter ad blockers
AOL has launched BrandBuilder to help advertisers circumvent ad blocking by creating native and custom ads that provide a better, more valuable experience to consumers. Player Up shows less intrusive spots before users watch a video, and DataPerks gives mobile users extra Verizon data in return for clicking on an ad and entering information such as an email address.

Publishers such as The New York Times, The Guardian and BuzzFeed have signed deals with Facebook for live streaming, as Facebook Live is touted to consumers worldwide. Facebook Live has created viral hits such as a mom in a Chewbacca mask, and its ability to reach large audiences in real time has helped activists report miscarriages of justice, but it also has darker implications in the spread of videos that show crime underway.
