We don’t usually comment on paid media but we felt we needed to train the spotlight oin this for two reasons:
We love Flipboard as users and were pretty impressed by the numbers posted in the article.
We always deplore the lack of creativity in the paid media (read: advertising) industry, especially on tablets and mobile, so this is a gigantic breath of fresh air in that respect.

Facebook Mobile Ads Perform

smetodiev:

Facebook is cracking the mobile advertising nut with its Mobile Sponsored Stories. Reported by Techcrunch, mobile sponsored stories by Facebook are getting 1.14% click-through rate at a $0.86 CPC earning Facebook an eCPM of $9.86. Compare that to eCPM of only $0.74 for their combined desktop ad offering.

That is a big deal given the $20B+ mobile advertising market opportunity.
