SEO loves its tropes; if we’re not insisting for the thousandth time that 'content is king’, we’re predicting that next year really will be ‘the year of mobile’. We’ve become so accustomed to heralding in each new year with this particular forecast that it feels a bit strange to be calling an end to the tradition. But do so I must, because here’s the thing – I think The Year of Mobile just happened.

There’s something that’s becoming increasingly important in today’s day in age. We are living in a technology age, and the pace at which things are moving is incredible. It really is a fantastic time for marketers, and one that should be wholly embraced. That being said, it doesn’t mean that every ‘new thing’ should be invested in, as more often than not, there is usually more hype around the product or service than there is credible evidence that it is worthwhile within the market.

Facebook has shown strong performance in Q4 with revenues up 40%. Its mobile ad sales have more than doubled on the previous quarter to total $306m, and now account for 23% of the Social Network’s overall ad revenues. The challenge now is in how it can increase monetisable engagement between users and advertisers whilst maintaining quality in terms of both targeting and also user experience. Graph Search is capable of doing this at the local business level, but getting increasingly more from big brands is the big challenge.

Facebook has confounded critics who thought it would be incapable of making money from the rapid growth of mobile device usage. Not only has it revealed a strong performance in Q4 with revenues up 40%, its mobile ad sales have more than doubled on the previous quarter to total $306m, to account for 23% of the Social Network’s overall ad revenues. However, according to Andreas Pouros, COO at Greenlight, there are indicators Facebook has achieved this growth by being as aggressive as it can be in pushing advertising to the masses within the confines it currently works in. Research* from the agency also suggests consumer apathy could pose a significant threat to future growth.
