This Wishpond infographic covers some online social advertising stats, across popular social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Since 2011, ad revenue has increased by 36% and this number is only expected to grow as these sites continue to expand.
On YouTube, one of the most viewed and shared advertisements of 2013 was the Dove Beauty Sketches. To put things into perspective, Wishpond notes that YouTube's monthly viewership is roughly equivalent to 10 Super Bowl audiences.
The power of advertising and social media can really be seen in one stat from the graphic, which spells out that 87% of Twitter's revenue comes entirely from advertisements. Since people are accessing sites like Twitter and Facebook from mobile devices, it's also important to note that mobile ads on iPhones generate a higher ROI than those on Android devices.
