Google’s and Facebook’s Grip on Digital Advertising Markets

Article | July 14, 2022

Alex Webb: More kids with smartphones spells advertising bonanza

Article | July 20, 2022

The revelation that, by the age of seven, 53% of British kids will own a mobile phone, will come as good news to one group in particular: advertisers.

For now, advertising targeted at children has been slower to migrate online than in the broader industry.
