Online advertisements also can offer various forms of animation. In its most common use, the term online advertising comprises all sorts of banner advertisement, e-mail advertising, in game advertising, and keyword advertising, on platforms such as facebook, Twitter, or Myspace has received increased relevance. Web related advertising has a variety of sites to publicize and reach a niche audience to focus its attention to a specific group.
