Social advertising is the trend, Weibo only need to follow the trend
In the era of mobile Internet, social networks occupy most of the online time of Internet users, WeChat, Weibo are traffic black hole, but also bring more close to the real society's interactive behavior. Whether from the traffic effect, or the user effect, social advertising will become the mainstream form of online advertising in the future, and micro-blog is precisely the driving force of the social revolution in the advertising industry.
China's social advertising share of the online advertising market in 2016 was 10 percent, compared with 28 percent in the U.S., according to eMarketer, a market research firm.
Weibo revenue continues to grow rapidly, is the trend of the times, the future of the advertising market on the mobile side, and micro-blogging is a mobile social company. Advertisers of display and search ads will gradually migrate to social advertising in the future, and online advertising will change from the era of in-streaming traffic distribution to the era of socialization that is centered, socialized, and interesting.
In the process of social advertising mainstreaming, Micro-blog has followed the trend, seized the trend, groped for many years in social advertising systems and product innovation, and continuously improved revenue efficiency, achieving ecological self-growth and internal ecological fission. Weibo's revenue growth in the next few years will not be slow, the big market for social advertising is far from the ceiling, and Weibo, while relatively rivals, but not really the same type of social media platform rivals.
Weibo is about to usher in a golden age of commercialization
On the one hand, the trend of social advertising is becoming more and more serious, on the other hand, the number of micro-blogging advertisers and ARPA growth, micro-blogging has become the social advertising protagonist of the online advertising market, in the self-growth at the same time, promote the growth and innovation of the industry.

Today's mobile advertising products, mainly divided into social advertising, search advertising and media display advertising three categories, search and display is the PC era mobile, and social advertising mobile properties are natural. In China, the social and search advertising market is very concentrated, social only Micro-blog and WeChat, search only Baidu and Sogou. Media display advertising competition is fierce, focusing on the news client, video client and many other platforms, belongs to the pan-media products or platforms must compete.
If the first seven years of microblogging were in the "Bronze Age" of commercialization, from groping business models to forming large-scale profitability, it was from the 0-1 start-up period. Now Weibo has entered the "Silver Age", the social advertising market has been recognized by the public and enterprises, the demand for ecological endo-advertising increased, the focus of micro-blogging has become ecological operation and commercial efficiency.

Some people, there is content, there is advertising value, which is also the micro-blogging operating costs increased not much, advertising revenue has soared an important reason.
Now, a lot of information APP in imitation of the micro-blogging information flow, trying to share the micro-blogging social advertising dinner, but the product attributes determine user behavior, social advertising cake will eventually be mainly divided by micro-blogging, WeChat. As microblogging drives the popularity of mobile short video, the pan-media circle is imitating the content layout of micro-blogging, for a time into the melee period, but micro-blogging has entered a period of high-speed revenue growth and ecological returns.
