Socially-Published and Socially-Enabled Ads
A key component of comScore Ad Metrix is visibility into the growing use of socially-published and socially-enabled ads. Socially-published ads refer to any brand’s display ads that appear on social networking sites, such as Facebook or LinkedIn. Socially-enabled ads are IAB standard display ads that can be clicked through to Facebook or other social networking sites. Increasingly, brands are utilizing these social calls-to-action in their display ad campaigns as a means of bolstering their social media presence.
In Australia, 24.7 percent of all display ad impressions were socially published in January 2012, while 10.5 percent of ad impressions were socially enabled. In the case of the McDonald’s Corporation, more than half (57.0 percent) of its display ads delivered during January were socially-enabled, while 54.4 percent of its display ads were published on social networking sites.
