The new digital advertising report sees Google to maintain the second spot behind Facebook in the next years with slight declines. Google's digital advertising share will dip from 13.7% in 2014 to 13.0% this year, and will drop down to 11.1% by 2017.

The growth of advertising in the social media companies is driven by mobile.

Meanwhile, desktop display ad spend will decline in 2015, falling to $12.38 billion, from $12.56 billion last year.

In 2015 Facebook will approach $5 billion in US mobile ad revenues alone, all of which appear in display formats. Almost 90% of Twitter’s US ad revenues will come from mobile devices this year, totaling over $1.19 billion, also all in display formats.

By 2017, Facebook’s US mobile ad revenues will grow more than 50% from this year, totaling about $7.53 billion, and Twitter will nearly double its US mobile ad revenues to $2.29 billion, closing in on Google in the mobile display category.
