DoubleVerify extends media quality authentication to Meta Reels

DoubleVerify (“DV”) (NYSE: DV), a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics, has expanded its quality solutions with Meta to enable media measurement and help maximize advertiser performance on Facebook and Instagram Reels. This release will leverage DV’s technology to help advertisers on Meta Reels ensure their video ads are viewable, by a human being and are safe from Fraud/Invalid Traffic (“IVT”).

With DV’s quality verification technology, advertisers leveraging Reels ads will benefit from protection against fraud and clarity around viewability authentication. Mutual clients will be able to access measurement data and insights through DV Pinnacle, the company’s unified service and analytics reporting platform, to monitor and optimize the quality of their Reels ads campaigns. Reporting will cover Viewability and Fraud across Reels’ video ad format also known as “Post-loop ads”.

Mark Zagorski, CEO, DoubleVerify, said: “As a participant in Meta’s measurement partnership program, we are thrilled to announce that we can measure viewability and fraud on Reels, providing global brands with greater clarity and confidence in their investments on both Facebook and Instagram. The explosion in short-form, user-generated content is offering advertisers a high-engagement environment to connect with passionate online communities. We can now provide media authentication, and help maximize campaign impact and performance for our mutual advertisers.”

DV became a participant in Meta’s measurement partnership program in 2017 offering fraud and viewability measurement on Facebook and Instagram. In 2019, DV launched brand safety and suitability on Facebook’s in-stream video inventory, Instant Articles and Audience Network.
