Paid social media advertising spends are expected to continue to increase in coming years. Locally targeted ads and mobile spend will drive much of the growth, and by 2017, locally targeted social ad spend will more than triple.
As Facebook and other social networking sites begin to allow advanced targeting on their sites, ad revenue will continue to grow just as digital display advertising has in recent years. By allowing granular targeting, advertising via social media outlets becomes cost accessible to smaller businesses who will then be able to target their demo more effectively and for less money.
While Facebook currently garners the most dollars from advertisers due to their capabilities, their spend will likely decrease as other social media outlets put ad formats into place.
Are you already utilizing Facebook advertising? What about promoted tweets? We’re here to answer questions – just drop us a note in the comments or tweet at us @AndersonAdPR – cheers!
As most know, China has the largest population in the world, housing 1,344,130,000 people to-date. In a recent article by Justin Lafferty, he relays a Pingdom prediction that by 2016 Facebook may have more users than China has people, making Facebook bigger than any country in the world! With China’s stringent internet controls, Lafferty jokes that, “Facebook can’t legally get into China, but [soon], the social network might be bigger than the country.”
To some, these numbers may not be surprising, but to advertisers running Facebook campaigns who are hoping to make an impact for their clients, this hopeful statistic may inspire more dollars going toward their paid social media efforts. By 2016, having over a billion Facebook users will make it one of the most robust avenues to reach consumers.

As I approach the three month mark on my employment here at ANDERSON I am still amazed at how exciting each new first is.
With 2012 right around the corner we are working on building the media plans for the new year for our media clients and on the PR side of things, there is never down time. It’s exciting, ALL THE TIME!
There is always a release to be drafting, a piece to be pitching, an event to be promoting, there is constant activity. And being a part of the activity? I love it!
I have done multiple press releases and even sent a couple out on the wires which, in case you were wondering, was maybe one of the most exciting things of my young life (maybe I need to get out more…) When you see a release you wrote popping up on dozens and dozens of sites and being redistributed and shared, it is such a high. To know your words are doing their job for your client? It is such a rush.
Between blogging, tweeting, Facebook-ing, drafting, pitching, following up, reporting, and using my Associated Press Stylebook for every step along the way, I couldn’t be more excited to see what I get to do next!
