Facebook unveiled new tools and updates for Messenger. While still in testing phase, one feature affords real-time appointment booking through Messenger that allows businesses to integrate their existing calendar booking software to power booking. Also, a new lead generation template is designed to make it easier for businesses to create automated experience to help qualify leads within Messenger. From there, they can continue conversation with potential customers in Messenger and integrate with existing CRM tools to track leads. In addition to these new tools, Facebook is also updating some of Messenger’s platform policies with a goal toward encouraging more personalized and relevant conversations between businesses and consumers.

YouTube’s crackdown on hateful content resulted in a spike of videos and channels purged during the second quarter of 2019. In a blog post on Tuesday, the Google-owned video giant said the policy change led to a fivefold increase in the number of videos (111,185) and channels (17,818) removed in Q2 for hate-speech violations compared with previous typical quarters. It also noted that total comments removed in the quarter nearly doubled to about 538 million, in part as a result of the updated policy. The video platform announced an update to its hate-speech policy in June that banned content “alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.”

NBC posts a Nielsen 1.4 rating/ 7 share in the key 18-49 category that many advertisers still desire, but it’s down 22% in ratings versus the same period the year before. CBS ranks second place in 18-49 Nielsen with 1.3/6, numbers that are virtually the same versus a year ago. ABC and Fox are tied for third with 1.2/6.
