Less Freedom of Action for Video Advertisers

Many analysts believe in Trump’s effort to limit the freedom of speech in media and press by suing the journalists who gave him a lot of trouble during the election campaign.

However, despite Trump’s claims, Dick O’Brien (the representative of American Association of Advertising Agencies) believes that “…we in business can expect a more beneficial treatment than we might have had dealing with Secretary Clinton.” Trump is an entrepreneur, and perhaps he will be more loyal to the business and advertising sectors. But his own words contradict this so far.

It only remains to be seen what the next decision of the president elect will be. But in any case, the pricing of advertising will change.

The newly elected president has confirmed the effectiveness of the use of video in social networks once again. Here is a truly a brilliant piece with some stats and examples:
