Roll Your Own Analytics - PC Maffey
Google Analytics runs on over 56% of all websites. It’s the backbone of ad-tech across the web. Unfortunately, for site owners like me who just want to learn how people are using their website—while respecting their privacy—there simply aren't any alternatives that meet all my requirements. So in two days, after a couple dead-ends, I built my own using React, AWS Lambda, and a spreadsheet. This is how.

Gierad Laput | Synthetic Sensors
We explore the notion of general-purpose sensing, wherein a single, highly capable sensor can indirectly monitor a large context, without direct instrumentation of objects. Further, through what we call Synthetic Sensors, we can virtualize raw sensor data into actionable feeds, whilst simultaneously mitigating immediate privacy issues. We use a series of structured, formative studies to inform the development of new sensor hardware and accompanying information architecture. We deployed our system across many months and environments, the results of which show the versatility, accuracy and potential of this approach.

The Stack

I wanted to set this up quickly, so I decided on the most easily accessible tools for my current go-to stack.* You could swap out any of these layers for your preferred tech. If you're expecting higher usage, you'll almost certainly want a more robust data store.*
Here's how it works:
Log a session on the client (React, state + context API)
When the session ends...
Call a lambda function (AWS Lambda via Netlify)
Store the data in Google Sheets (Google Sheets, Google App Scripts)

L'Oréal deepens personalized skincare focus with uBiome partnership | Marketing Dive
As the demand for personalized marketing and products continues to blossom, L'Oréal announced a partnership with microbial genomics company uBiome this week at the South by Southwest conference. 
The partnership from the beauty giant's technology incubator lets consumers submit cheek-swab samples — similar to buzzy genomics biotech company 23andMe — which uBiome analyzes to determine a user's skin health based on the ecosystem of microbes of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microorganisms that live on the skin and can cause acne, eczema and skin irritations when it is imbalanced. Based on the results, a user can make more personalized product choices.

Facebook replaces relevance score, changes ad metrics | Marketing Dive
Facebook announced three new updates to its ad metrics, including removing lesser-used metrics, updating how potential reach is calculated and replacing the single relevance score, according to a company blog post. 
The relevance score, a measure of how relevant ads are to the audience reached, will be replaced with three ad relevance diagnostics metrics, including quality ranking, or how an ad's perceived quality compared with competing ads; engagement rate ranking, an ad's expected engagement rate compared with competing ads; and conversion rate ranking, how an expected conversion rate compares to ads with the same optimization goal and competed for the same audience. The previous relevance score metric will be removed starting April 30.

Foursquare introduces experimental 'Hypertrending' feature for SXSW
Ten years later, Foursquare is still making a case for location-sharing tech.
The company known for popularizing the digital check-in at SXSW a decade ago now is showing off a new, experimental feature that takes advantage of all of the company's location data. It's called Hypertrending, and it's launching now in Foursquare's apps for SXSW attendees in Austin (you have to shake your phone to access the feature).
Hypertrending is essentially a real-time heat map that lets you see where people are at any given moment. It's all anonymized, so you can't see the location of any one individual, but the idea is to give users a window into where the masses are — something that could be useful for the thousands of people who descend on Austin for SXSW.
