Social networks prove to be the major exception.

It has been expected that advertisers will continue to search for social networks for the upcoming months.

“These sites have the scale and identity capabilities that advertisers want,” says Lauren Fisher, principal analyst at eMarketer.

Brands investing more in programmatic digital ads may want to increase the revenue of marketers across their social networks.
