πŸš– Lyft Closing New User Gap with Uber in U.S. as IPO Approaches

As it prepares for its long-awaited IPO, #Lyft has been slowly yet surely pulling alongside rival #Uber in the United States when it comes to the number of new users both services are adding each month.

According to Sensor Tower, which count first-time downloads of apps by unique App Store and Google Play users, Lyft added close to 1.5 million new riders in the U.S. last month, compared to Uber’s 1.9 million, giving the soon-to-be-public company a 43 percent share of those acquired between the two. This is a significant turnaround from April 2015, when Uber accounted for 82 percent of new U.S. riders added by the two services that month.

πŸ“‰ Brand Reputations That Took a Hit in 2019

#Facebook certainly had a tough year and it shows in the recent Axios and Harris Poll report: The 100 Most Visible Companies. The company had the largest dip in the report’s ranking, plummeting 43 places between 2018 and 2019. Barely in the top 100 brands, the social network fell to the bottom of the pack. Facebook has had to answer to legislators around the world this year about how it shares users’ data with third parties, the role it plays in spreading disinformation, and the vulnerabilities it has to hacks.

πŸ›΄ Americans drift from Uber and Lyft, test alternative forms of transportation

Americans are exploring alternative methods of transportation. Looking at average daily active users (DAUs) per month over the past 13 months, we’re estimating decreases in active usage for #Uber and #Lyft, while seeing increases in active usage for things like public transportation, bikes and scooters.

The above data is for the United States and is a combination of iOS + Google Play apps. Lyft has said its market share in the United States was at about 35% in early 2018, and is now closing in at around 40%. Lyft is losing less average DAUs than Uber, which has in fact grown its percentage of market share in the United States.

β€‹β€‹πŸ’° Google Hit With Another Antitrust Fine in Europe

The European Commission announced yet another #antitrust fine against #Google today, imposing a €1.49 billion ($1.69b) penalty for unfairly shielding its AdSense advertising platform from competition. "Today the Commission has fined Google €1.49 billion for illegal misuse of its dominant position in the market for the brokering of online search adverts. Google has cemented its dominance in online search adverts and shielded itself from competitive pressure by imposing anti-competitive contractual restrictions on third-party websites", commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an official statement.

The European Commission’s latest ruling against Google is by no means the first time that the EU’s watchdog has taken action against an American tech company. In fact, Google itself got a taste of EU antitrust regulation as recently as last year. In July 2018, the European Commission hit Google with a record-breaking €4.3 billion fine for allegations related to #Android after having fined the company €2.4 billion ($2.7b) for anticompetitive behavior related to Google Shopping in July 2017.

As the following chart illustrates, other tech giants have felt the wrath of the European Commission as well. #Microsoft alone has been fined four times over the past two decades including three times for allegedly ignoring previous antitrust sanctions and for breaking promises made in an earlier antitrust settlement. The EU’s competition commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, has made U.S. tech companies a central focus, cracking down on anticompetitive behavior, tax avoidance and mishandling of user privacy.
