Adblocking on mobile may currently be smaller but this should not be an excuse for complacency and allowing the problem to acquire desktop adblocking proportions before serious notice is taken. Mobile adblocking is evolving fast and recent developments suggest that its not-so-distant implications will not only impact publishers’ revenues, but will also drive farther reaching disruption.
