Singapore, 1 November 2021: Nielsen is thrilled to announce the launch of an enhancement to Nielsen Ad Intel Digital that provides marketers with detailed advertiser-product level social and media spend. The added breadth of measurement to include these media provides new visibility into some of the largest ad investments on digital. In addition, video collections are expanded to cover pre, mid and post-roll content for mobile and desktop devices.

Nielsen Ad Intel Digital offers intelligence to identify prospects, analyse brand strategies, and learn from past campaigns to plan for the future through a wide range of categories (more than 140 categories). This new addition of social digital data will provide increased coverage by measuring additional sites and advertising types, with a more accurate representation of digital ad buys, in a secure, privacy-safe way. Media buyers and sellers now have greater ease to monitor, adjust and measure their digital ad performance.
