Editor's Pick

To remind readers that opinions shared on social media aren't always reliable, Middle Eastern paper The Khaleej Times and agency TBWA/RAAD Dubai created "the opinionated banner". Using the skills of four journalists, a banner ad responded to users in seconds with an opinion every time they shared its image. The message was that "an educated opinion is based on fact". The banner had a 33% engagement rate and the newspaper increased its subscriptions by 1.6% as a result.
