The long-term opportunity will be fueled by the continuing shift to the Web from both network and cable TV and print media audiences. U.S. spending on Internet advertising will surpass $21 billion this year and double by 2011, as more money moves away from traditional media like television and newspapers, according to industry research firm eMarketer's forecast.
Totally unique and rare opportunity to capture the increasing numbers of Web-centric consumers and the younger Facebook generation that are rapidly migrating away from print. Magazines as a category are being replaced in the evolutionary cycle by dynamic interactive Web-based properties.
