How Publishers Define Native
“Native” advertising can mean all things to all people. Pinning down what exactly it means in an content experience, in particular, is hard.
Digiday asked top publishers for their definition of native advertising. Most used different labels, but the agreement was that native advertising for publishers means crafting ads that fit within their experiences without feeling like intrusions. We asked publishers at the Digiday Publisher Summit to define native advertising for them.

It’s still being defined. You want to provide the advertiser with the best experience you can and also provide the best experience for the users who want to view those advertisements.

Native advertising is about taking what the advertiser is wanting to communicate and integrating it with what our users are expecting.
Matt Sanchez, CEO, Say Media
Native advertising is anything that takes on the form of the medium.
Tom Cochran, CTO, Atlantic Media
