Clare Lui, vice-president, media, Nielsen Hong Kong, said: “The expanded capability of Digital Ad Ratings showcases Nielsen’s commitment to provide our clients with the most comprehensive third-party measurement across all publishers and platforms. This has significance as YouTube accounts for a large share of mobile video advertising in the markets involved, including Hong Kong."
