Duopoly Share of U.S. Digital Ad Revenues Continues to Shrink: Axios Report

If we seem more philosophical than usual this week, it’s not the result of some Scrooge-like holiday transformation (sorry, Jamie), but because hard news is scarce.   Still, it’s a welcome opportunity to talk about long-term trends, like this Axios piece that quotes Insider Intelligence as finding the Google/Meta share of U.S. digital ad revenue will fall below 50% this year.  It’s no surprise – the share peaked back in 2017 – but a good reminder that duopoly power is less secure than it seems.
