Join AOL's One Day Without Shoes Barefoot Challenge

Millions around the world grow up without owning a pair of shoes and are subjected to life-threatening diseases and infections. For the third year in a row, AOL is proud to support TOMS One Day Without Shoes, a day to raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child's life by taking off our own.

On Tuesday April 16th, AOLers will join people across the globe by taking off their shoes and going barefoot to help initiate conversations on this issue. Founder and Chief Shoe-Giver of TOMS, Blake Mycoskie, truly believes that the curiosity of going barefoot leads to conversation, which leads to action, which ultimately leads to change.

We've helped spread the One Day Without Shoes message to millions – and now you can also take action by pledging to go barefoot on April 16th and you could even win a $500 TOMS gift card! Enter to win on our Facebook Page. The more bare feet there are, the bigger the footprint so join the movement.

Advertising.com customers can now access Facebook inventory through AOL's massive premium, cross-screen network. With 608M global unique visitors, Advertising.com is one of the largest providers of programmatic buying, and with the addition of Facebook's 1bn users, our reach is expanded even further.

Marketers can execute both brand and performance campaigns across screens (desktop, mobile, tablet, connected TVs), across formats (video, mobile, premium formats), and now on one of the most visited sites in the world, all with one buy through Advertising.com.

Working with Advertising.com advertisers will be able to powerfully leverage their own, and AOL's, targeting on Facebook.

Goviral Reveals Best 100 Brands in Branded Content

With the overflow of viral videos and branded digital stunts, it is becoming more and more difficult for anyone to make a splash in the social market. The goviral team have released the top 100 brands in branded content for 2012, highlighting the companies and brands that are leading the way with their social content.

The first goviral Social Video Equity Report evaluated these brands based on their volume, total views and engagement for content uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. Goviral then weighed the quality, purpose, innovation and audience relevance, before calculating the final social video equity score. From the report:

"The results of goviral's Social Video Equity Report prove that when it comes to branded content, fortune favors the brave", said Mads Holmen, Planning Director, goviral. "Brands like Red Bull, Old Spice and Nike are risk-takers, constantly disrupting what's expected to spark agenda-setting conversation. An effective social video strategy can elevate a brand beyond the product, creating an experience consumers really want to part of."
