DoubleVerify, an audience measurement and verification solution, is now a Snapchat Measurement Partner, adding to the list of social media platforms DoubleVerify partners with to provide viewability measurement.

Why we should care

DoubleVerify offers the most comprehensive third-party viewability measurement for Snapchat campaigns, with coverage across Snapchat’s Filter, Lens, Snap Ad (display and video) and Story Ad formats. It is the only measurement provider approved to measure viewability on Snapchat Lens campaigns.

The company now has measurement partnerships with Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. By adding Snapchat, DoubleVerify can now offer customers a more comprehensive package to verify their social advertising campaigns — keeping them from having to turn to a variety of solutions to monitor viewability and ad fraud.

“Measurement across platforms can vary dramatically,” said DoubleVerify CEO Wayne Gattinella, “DoubleVerify uses consistent evaluation standards across environments — including web, mobile app and social, making it easier for advertisers to benchmark performance across their entire media plan.”
