The share of internet advertising in comparison to total advertising spend among Indian companies has grown from 1.3 per cent to 2.9 per cent.
Nearly 66 per cent of internet users globally visit social networks and blogs. The time spent on social networking sites is growing at over three times the rate of overall internet growth.
