Commentary

It's a mobile world, and we're experiencing the best of it. If anything, this week, it was made utterly clear by the advances that Facebook made in the mobile space. With 53% of its ad revenue in the fourth quarter of 2013 coming from mobile (up from 49% the previous quarter and 23% the year earlier), it's clear that Facebook has solved the problem of monetizing a mobile platform.

Further, the announcement of its new app, Paper, has been met with nothing but intrigue and excitement. The better user interface is more aligned with mobile user experience versus the previous iteration of its app, which largely mimicked the desktop version. You can expect that appropriate mobile monetization of the new Paper app will be far easier.
