Digital advertising in 2017 saw several major changes that will continue to influence and affect the work of digital marketers in the coming year. As we go speeding into 2018, here are five predictions about how the digital advertising landscape will evolve in the coming year.

Facebook refers to these types of posts as “engagement bait.”
Soon, Instagram will start slotting ads between those Stories, the company announced on Wednesday. As with its duplication of Snapchat’s Stories product, Instagram’s ads within Stories will largely mimic the ads that Snapchat began inserting between Stories in its app last June — but boosted by Facebook’s advertising relationships and technology.
