If this doesn't convince you, total US mobile and social media revenues—including business and consumer content, access, and advertising and marketing—reached $45.38 billion in 2011, up 30.2% from a year earlier, according to new data from PQ Media.
Additionally, though search and display continued to lead ad formats in 2011, mobile emerged as relevant category, increasing 149%, from $641 million in 2010, to $1.60 billion in 2011.
This growth doesn't look like it is slowing down either. "Mobile will also reach the $100 billion mark in 2015 faster than any other communications industry, driven by several key growth drivers, including strong growth in overall mobile device penetration, the transition to smartphones and tablets, the torrent of new mobile content launches, and the continued growth of consumer and business time spent with mobile media," said Patrick Quinn, CEO of PQ Media.
