Amazon is the world’s most valuable brand, according to the 2019 BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands rankings. In order, the other brands in the Top 10 are: Apple, Google, Microsoft, Visa, Facebook, Alibaba, Tencent, McDonalds and AT&T. Amazon moved up from the No. 3 spot in 2018 with a brand value of $316.5B, a 52% change. Apple held fast at No. 2, while Google slipped from the No. 1 slot in 2018.
“The growth in value of this year’s top 100 brands to an all-time high proves the power of investing in brands to deliver superior shareholder value,” said David Roth, CEO of The Store WPP EMEA and Asia  and Chairman of BrandZ. “Behind this headline growth figure lies the success coming from a new phenomenon of ecosystem brand building. We’re seeing a move from individual product and service brands to a new era of highly-disruptive ecosystems.”
Most of the top U.S. banking apps have security flaws that put user data at risk, security firm Zimperium told TechCrunch.

Facebook will start paying users to participate in market research, with an app called Study. “We’ve learned that what people expect when they sign up to participate in market research has changed, and we’ve built this app to match those expectations,” said Facebook product manager Sagee Ben-Zedeff in a blog post. “We’re offering transparency, compensating all participants, and keeping people’s information safe and secure.” When someone clicks on an ad encouraging people to participate in a program, they’ll have the option to register, and if they qualify will be invited to download the app. To help manage the logistics, Facebook will work with long-time partner Applause.
