BII CHART OF THE DAY: Sponsored Stories Are The Most Effective Mobile Ads

Elsewhere in the study, consumers cited relevance as the mobile ad factor most likely to draw their attention. This helps explain why Twitter is poised to build a formidable mobile business and why Facebook is making it easier for potential advertisers to buy mobile sponsored stories.
