Which tech company will be your next target?

A new study finds that technology companies that are aggressively targeting digital ads for children will reap the biggest financial gains from the new rules, but the average digital ad maker will be hit hard.
The new rules are the culmination of years of lobbying by companies that want to sell ads that are more targeted and less intrusive to kids.
While they won’t impact children as much as other companies, they will likely be able to reap the most financial rewards.
The study found that the top four tech companies were responsible for more than $7.5 billion in digital ad spending, including $1.3 billion in ad spending for children.
For the first time in a decade, the study found, companies that have targeted children for digital ads are the ones making the biggest gains.
In the first year after the rules go into effect, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon will spend more than 3 percent of their ad spend on digital ads.
That’s up from 2 percent the previous year, according to the study.
Facebook’s digital ad spend will rise to 7 percent of its ad spend.
The study also found that while the average ad maker is benefiting from the rules, there are many more vulnerable ad buyers who won’t see their digital ads at all.
Nearly 80 percent of ad buyers surveyed said they’d be forced to spend more to offset the digital ads they’re seeing.
That includes 55 percent of children, and 47 percent of parents.
“The rules don’t affect all ad buyers, but they do affect the advertisers that are selling these ads,” said Lauren J. Siegel, co-director of the Center for Digital Media at the Mercatus Center, a nonprofit think tank in Washington, D.C. Among the companies that will be most impacted by the rules are those that offer social media ads, including Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
Companies that provide online video ads will also be affected, but not nearly as much.
That includes ad platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo, as well as social-networking sites like Instagram and Pinterest, which all have an average audience of around 2 million users.

But the rules should be good news for everyone who makes ads for kids.
In fact, they may help grow the digital ad business even more,” Siegel said.
“This report shows that the rules don, in fact, make it easier for ad makers to make more money from their ads.
But it also highlights the problems with the existing rules, including the need for ad buyers to be more aware of the types of ads they can and cannot advertise.”
The report is the first in a series of reports looking at the impact of digital advertising on the children in the U.S. While the rules have been praised by consumer advocates and some tech companies, some of the changes could also hurt those businesses that have the most experience in delivering targeted ads.
According to the report, the new ad rules will mean that ad buyers with less experience in digital marketing, such as digital marketing experts and digital content creators, will be more likely to see their ads not only be rejected, but also get blocked from being sold.
