Native advertising trends will shape the digital publishing industry in 2016. For one, they represent a more elegant and modernized option for online magazines looking to generate revenue the old-fashioned way — that is, via marketing dollars — while flying relatively under the radar of those big, bad ad blocking defense systems.

Branded content has been gaining steam for a while, even if it just has a fancier name for advertorial. We’ve been watching closely, and so, too, has the Federal Trade Commission, of course.

AdAge covers that development and much more in several recent articles about native advertising trends.
