Where do digital ads fit?
NEW YORK, December 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — The global digital marketing and advertising market encompasses a wide range of marketing services and products that are provided through the internet. With the emergence of social media dominance, the importance of digital ads is expected to accelerate in the eyes of businesses.
According to a study by the ad agency Zenith, global advertising spend on social media is set to overtake newspapers in the next four years. Social media advertising is growing at 20 percent a year and by 2019 it will be worth $50.2 billion compared to $50.7 billion for newspapers. Moxian Inc. (NASDAQ: MOXC), Facebook Inc.

The study reveals that social media platforms have benefited from the rapid adoption of mobile technology, using it to embed themselves into their users’ daily lives. Social media is a significant part of social lives as well as main source of news for many users. As a result, social media ads blend seamlessly into the news feed, and are therefore more effective than interruptive banner formats, especially on mobile devices.
