AudienceScience Enhances Hispanic Audience Targeting Solution for Advertisers to Reach Fastest Growing Segment of U.S. Online Population

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - AudienceScience®, a global online advertising technology company delivering digital marketing success, today announced the launch of AudienceScience Hispanic Audience Targeting, a solution enabling advertisers to reach up to 70 percent of online Hispanic consumers across a network of thousands of Spanish and English language Internet sites. With its acquisition of Hispanic targeting leader Consorte Media in 2010, AudienceScience has continually grown its access capabilities to one of the fastest growing online audiences.

eMarketer predicts that the Hispanic online population to grow by nearly 10 million people between 2010 and 2014, and U.S. Census results due in the coming weeks could boost that estimate even further.
