Facebook Will Bring in $16.3 Billion in Global Ad Revenue This Year

While Twitter loses a little steam


A new report from eMarketer forecasts that Facebook and Instagram will control nearly 65 percent—the equivalent of roughly $16.3 billion—of brands' social-media budgets this year, while Twitter's share will fall.

The research firm said today it expects overall social ad spending to hit $25.1 billion in 2015, up from a $23.7 billion projection in April. EMarketer's estimates are largely driven by Facebook and Instagram's ad business, which is expected to grow 42 percent from 2014.
