It can be a video inserted within Blogs and Social Streams (Ebuzzing Social’s offering), an Ad-‐selector for Content Gating (BeeAd’s offering), or innovative rich media formats developed by We Spread.” Ebuzzing distributes video campaigns through an extensive network of 40,000 media and premium websites, influential blogs, mobile, tablet and desktop apps and social media sites in over 90 countries.
