The global ad industry is plagued by a big misconception at the moment: the idea that there’s a huge difference between buying and selling inventory programmatically on mobile versus desktop. But, according to Fyber’s co-founder and COO Janis Zech, and Erwin Plomp, Fyber’s VP of RTB (pictured below), the process, tools, and buying behaviours for programmatic on desktop and the mobile web are very similar – if not the same. It’s when you get to in-app versus desktop that there’s [...]

According to the IAB, the average Briton now spends one in six of their waking hours online, with mobiles and tablets accounting for over half (56%) of that. Media consumption on mobile is at an all-time high, but brands are not spending the equivalent of [...]
