Social Network Ad Spending


Facebook's current strong performance is propping up the entire business of paid social-network advertising in the U.S. EMarketer estimates that U.S. marketers will spend more than $1.2 billion to advertise on online social networks in 2009, increasing to $1.3 billion in 2010 and $1.4 billion in 2011. That translates to 3.9% growth in 2009, 7.1% in 2010 and 7.7% in 2011. Much of the growth is coming from Facebook, which has a worldwide user base of 350 million. While Facebook has grown, MySpace has fallen off, both in traffic and revenues.
