(AOF) РObiz, a digital platform for responsible relational marketing, announces the completion of the acquisition of Ski Loisirs Diffusion (SLD), a French platform publisher of APIs and SaaS platforms, leader in solutions dedicated to Inters CSE, CSE (Comit̩ Social and Economic) and French communities.

SLD will be consolidated in the accounts of Obiz from July 1, 2023.

Growth of online advertising slowed down

After a record year in 2021, advertisers are now more cautious. In the first quarter, online advertising recorded growth limited to 7% for Meta, the lowest level since its IPO in 2012. The ex-Facebook is particularly impacted by Apple’s new system which restricts the ad targeting. Indeed, applications in iPhones must now ask their users if their data can be shared with third parties for advertising purposes. According to an industry expert, the shortfall for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Snapchat could approach $16 billion in 2022.
