What is it about?

The present article aims to understand attitudes towards social media ads, one of the most recent and rapidly growing forms of digital advertisements. A survey study was carried out to understand the attitudes using Ducoffe’s advertising value model and extending it by the inclusion of “rewards” and “personalization” constructs. Facebook ads are used as a proxy for social media ads. The findings indicate that credibility, personalization, informativeness and entertainment have direct positive effects on advertising value and have indirect effects on attitudes towards social media ads. Personalization emerged as a significant factor affecting all other related constructs.
