Display, which dominates social media advertising* is projected to climb from $2.1 billion in 2010 to $7.7 billion in 2015—a CAGR of 30.4%.
Though revenues for non-display ad formats, such as Twitter's "promoted products," are now minimal, the category is expected to expand, from zero in 2010, to $600 million in 2015, at a 65% CAGR.
