The biggest gainers on the other hand is in the online ad buys where advertisers spending 12.1% more in Q1 2012 than they did last year.
Further breaking down the online ad spending, Middle East & Africa will pour 35.2% more on their online ad spending, 31.8% for Latin America and just 12.1% increase in Europe; wherein the current eurozone economic crisis may have been a factor.
