  32. 32. What We're Seeing in LAT Rates Is More Interesting To protect users’ privacy, both Google and Apple have added a setting to limit ad tracking. When enabled, it severely limits the data advertisers can collect about you and your device. It does, however, result in less relevant advertising. @Jonahkai • Almost 90% of our time on mobile devices is spent in apps, and NOT on the mobile web. • Most of that time is spent in 5-8 apps. • Two of which are probably from Facebook. • Two of which are probably from Google. • One is email. • Another two are probably games.

  40. 40. 5 Key Learnings 1. Advertising There are a lot of people who are not happy with the current degree of advertising and monetization on the web and mobile. 2. Ad blocking: who’s doing it? It’s not just one demographic or one group. It is growing… 3. Mobile ad blocking: largely ineffective Current solutions do not actually block the majority of ads served on mobile. 4. Revenue replacement There is just no way that a tip-jar style pay-as-you-go solution for compensating publishers is doable industry-wide. 5. If The Content Is Missing People are willing to turn off ad blockers, if they cant see the content they want. @Jonahkai

  44. 44. NATIVE ADVERTISING IS GROWING • Native advertising is clearly content that is in-stream with editorial or social content, and as such is much harder to filter out. • While it’s not appropriate for every advertiser, brand, platform, or publisher, native is growing fast and in an era of extreme ad blocking, will accelerate even more. • We use it at TUNE with massive success. @Jonahkai
